(Movie) 21

I really really liked this movie. It was different, it was interesting, it was fun. And it was based around real events. Kevin Spacey is like icing on the cake, he did a great job. I was surprised I like this one so much, it was a little bit of a hidden gem for me. I watched it basically because I wanted something and it was available 🙂 It kept my attention and the math/cheat stuff kept me complete enraptured. Awesomeness!

Product Description
Inspired by the true story of MIT students who mastered the art of card counting and took Vegas casinos for millions in winnings. Looking for a way to pay for tuition, Ben Campbell (Jim Sturgess) finds himself quietly recruited by MIT’s most gifted students in a daring plot to break Vegas. With the help of a brilliant statistics professor (Kevin Spacey) and armed with fake IDs, intelligence and a complicated system of counting cards, Ben and his friends succeed in breaking the impenetrable casinos. Now, his challenge is keeping the numbers straight and staying one step ahead of the casinos before it all spirals out of control.

    I LOVED this movie too! Jim Sturgis was very good in it too, and it made my husband try to figure out blackjack card counting, lol.

    I remember hearing about this one when it was first released, but had forgotten to save it in my Netflix queue at the time. (Only once in a blue moon will I go to the cinema.) So thanks to your review, I was reminded of it and went and added it. Mwaaah! 😡
