Worth a rental ...Not sure I trust the Rotten Tomatoes rating becuase this is a decent flick. Not great, but certainly worth a rental. Characters are well developed, no obvious plot-holes other than the flood of the house (a dream?). Realistic enough to be believable. Good cast of characters, good performance by Wahlberg. The "tennis star" guy was pretty weak in the role, totally not believable. Other than that, though, it's decent. Definitely better than average..Score: 4/5

Boring crime dramaNot what I expected.Score: 1/5

BorrrriinggI love slow burn films, but this was pretty awful. Love this premise but the execution was sub par...which is a shame because of the all star cast it boasts. Just bad.Score: 2/5

A Slick, Slow-BurnThere aren’t many films that I’ve seen recently that warrant a second viewing. By the time the credits rolled, I had already (for the most part) decided my thoughts and felt I had fully grasped the movie as a whole. And though I may watch it again for pleasure, I don’t necessarily need to. So, I was quite surprised when I felt the need to re-watch “The Gambler”. I had seen flickers of greatness and wasn’t sure whether or not it was just in my head, or if every single critic that had bashed the movie was dead wrong. And for those reasons alone, I decided to give it another whirl. The second time confirmed my already established thoughts and much more. Trust me, this is not your average thriller (if it even falls under that category). At the center of the film is Mark Wahlberg’s character, who is the ‘Houdini’ (as one calls him) of gambling. He pulls things out of thin air and manages to win just about every time. But, the catch is, he doesn’t know when to stop. Hence the title. It’s a man’s struggle with debt, loved-ones, and his own reason for living. By day he’s a philosophizing English professor and by night a ferocious gambler. All of this is a distraction to him. To what, is fair-game to the audience. It’s slick filmmaking above all, but it’s even more than that, with an assured style that usually comes with an experienced director. However, I’m thinking it’s more to the writer’s credit in this case (who also brilliantly wrote “The Departed”). The most entertaining moments consist of the back-and-forth between Wahlberg and John Goodman’s character, who plays one of the many gangsters our protagonist’s involved with. What surprised me - and pleased me - about the whole experience was its hesitance to include an abundance of action. It could have easily been that kind-of mindless, chase scene-driven film that I’ve slowly grown to hate. But, it’s more of a slow-burn. It doesn’t reveal everything all at once and leaves a certain air of mystery for the audience to ponder over. Personally, I found it to be a breath of fresh air in the realm of studio movies being released today..Score: 5/5

English Professor?It is not understandable why an accomplished actor like Mark Wahlberg would take a role like this. As an English professor at college he must have dropped a hundred f-bombs throughout the movie. I am no prude but that is a little ridiculous. Besides that, the movie is just plain bad. I gave it two stars because I actually watched the whole thing!.Score: 2/5

Český
James Bennett (Mark Wahlberg) je hazardér, který vede dvojí život. Na jedné straně profesor literatury, na straně druhé gambler hrající jen ty nejvyšší sázky. Když však vsadí všechny peníze, které si půjčil od gangstera, a na oplátku ručí svým životem, začíná se hra, ve které musí být vždy o krok vpřed a hrát na dvě strany. Ponořený v nelegálním světě gangsterů si Bennett pomalu získává pozornost Franka (John Goodman), lichváře s otcovským zájmem o jeho budoucnost, a současně prohlubuje svůj vztah se studentkou Amy (Brie Larson). Aby získal druhou šanci, musí podstoupit maximální riziko...

Dansk
Litteraturprofessoren Jim Bennett er uforbederlig ludoman. Han skylder det lokale kasino en anselig sum og får en uge til at betale. Men Jim lever og ånder for at satse stort. Han låner penge af gangsteren Neville og stiller sit eget liv som sikkerhed. Efterhånden som fristen udløber, søger Jim dybere ned i underverdenen og bliver stadig mere kynisk i sin handlemåde. Mark Wahlberg spiller hovedrollen i dette remake af 1974 filmen af sammen navn, med James Caan.

Deutsch
Der Literaturprofessor Jim Bennett hat ein echtes Problem. Seine Spielsucht bringt ihn immer wieder in äußerst prekäre Situationen, besonders wenn man bedenkt, wem er alles Geld schuldet. Seine reiche Mutter, die ihren Sohn längst abgeschrieben hat, ist da wohl noch das geringste Problem. Viel gefährlicher dagegen ist der Gangster Neville, der sein Geld mit Nachdruck zurückfordert und für den ein Leben nichts anderes ist als ein Pfand. Er begibt sich bald auf illegales und riskantes Terrain, um die zwielichtigen Persönlichkeiten, mit denen er sich eingelassen hat, auszutricksen. Das erregt schließlich auch die Aufmerksamkeit des Kredithais Frank, der ein fast schon väterliches Interesse an Bennetts Zukunft hegt. Doch inwieweit kann Bennett ihm wirklich trauen?

Ο Τζιμ Μπένετ είναι ένας άνθρωπος που παίρνει ρίσκα. Τόσο καθηγητής, όσο και τζογαδόρος, αλλά και γιος μιας πλούσιας γυναίκας με την οποία έχει δύσκολη σχέση, ο Τζιμ βάζει το κεφάλι του σε ρίσκο, όταν δανείζεται από έναν μαφιόζο και προσφέρει ως αντίτιμο αν χάσει την ίδια του τη ζωή. Παίζοντας στα άκρα, τραβάει την προσοχή του Φρανκ, ενός ντόπιου μεγαλοκαρχαρία με πατρικό ενδιαφέρον για τον Τζιμ. Και καθώς η ερωτική του σχέση με μια του φοιτήτρια γίνεται ολοένα και πιο βαθιά, ο Μπένετ νιώθει ότι πρέπει να πάρει το απόλυτο ρίσκο για μια δεύτερη ευκαιρία..

Jim Bennett, professeur de littérature à l’université, est un joueur compulsif. Prisonnier de son vice, il parie de grosses sommes d’argent dans des casinos clandestins. Contraint de rembourser un propriétaire de casino pour des notes de crédit, il tente de payer ses dettes en empruntant une grosse somme d’argent à un dangereux gangster. Malheureusement, Jim perd tout et il ne dispose que de sept jours pour rembourser le caïd.

Français
Issu d'une famille très aisée, n'ayant jamais manqué de rien, Jim Bennett est professeur agrégé de littérature contemporaine et il tente d'enseigner vainement l'existentialisme à des étudiants qui semblent plus préoccupés à récolter leurs points que des bribes de culture littéraire. Dramaturge qui s'ignore, il a commis en 2007 un succès littéraire qui lui apporta une certaine notoriété. Rien depuis ne lui apporte de l'excitation sinon les jeux de hasard dans lesquels il puise l'adrénaline, carburant nécessaire pour la poursuivre de son style de vie suicidaire, le seul qui donne du sens à son existence. Surendetté, il doit des sommes considérables — qu'il n'a nullement l'intention de rembourser — aux patrons des pègres caucasienne, afro-américaine et coréenne, qui lui vouent une certaine sympathie.

The EscapistThriller2009

In Rupert Wyatt's directorial debut, THE ESCAPIST, Frank Perry (Brian Cox) is a lifer; in prison for the rest of his natural born days. He's never had a problem with that: he did the crime; he'll do the time. Until now. He gets a letter telling him that his only and much loved daughter is critically ill following an overdose. He knows he must see her and to do that he'll have to escape. But he can't do it alone. A motley crew of younger associates is assembled to enact his plan: Lenny Drake (Joseph Fiennes), Brodie (Liam Cunningham), and Viv Batista (Seu Jorge). As they prepare to break out, Frank's focus is distracted by the arrival of a young con James Lacey (Dominic Cooper) – a reminder of days long lost. As the new kid on the block Lacey also attracts the sadistic attention of Tony (Steven Macintosh), the drug-addict brother of wing-king Rizza (Damian Lewis). Personality conflicts put the escape in jeopardy and Frank is forced to find the energy and courage of the man he once was. From IFC Films.
