  1. Greenhorn's rating of the film The Gambler

    This is a good story about a man with a bad addiction. Too many mistakes and risk. Play with the wrong people and high sums. "Rien ne va plus" Everything on black! F*ck You! Jetons for 10,000. Good luck boy ....

  2. Kid Sisyphus's rating of the film The Gambler

  3. Jeremy Ashlyn's rating of the film The Gambler

  4. Nelson Núñez's rating of the film The Gambler

    A pesar del esfuerzo de los actores y el correcto trabajo del director, la película no logra despertar entusiasmo e interés alguno. El soundtrack es brutal (This Bitter Earth de Dinah Washington es increíble)

  5. Catherine Krummey's rating of the film The Gambler

    I think I would've liked this a lot more if someone other than Mark Wahlberg was in the lead role.

  6. A47's rating of the film The Gambler

    "Life's a losing proposition, right? You might as well get it over with." You can feel this script's momentum choking on itself at every hand - fragmenting every opportunity for an investment in its character's wants. Each scene folds into an indication, as if by design, and yet it is an interesting movie. The cinematography is good at points and the character types (no matter how shallow) create the plot - brave.

  7. melly's rating of the film The Gambler

    A fun bad-boy romp through casinos, academia, family, and existentialism.

  8. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film The Gambler

    Remake of 1974 Karel Reisz version with James Caan. I was expecting a B-movie. But totally wrong approach. Mark Wahlberg is not my favourite, but what he is performing here, is brilliant. Great camera. Good cut. Very suitable soundtrack. After 40 years there is a "renovation" which brings the story across "faster" & "updated". If you want to see a Ford Mustang Cabrio: go for Caan or a BMW M135i: go for Wahlberg.

  9. Tlr Creme Org's rating of the film The Gambler

    Oh surprise, Wahlberg is not really convincing as a brilliant but derailed English teacher (or was it novelist). Possibly I was more impressed by James Caan in the original.

  10. Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film The Gambler

    A very Dostoyevskyian film, far better than the Hollywood product it was sold as, featuring a solid performance by Wahlberg, tasteful and crafty direction by Wyatt and one of Monaghan's most existentially acute screenplays.

  11. Carl Penguin's rating of the film The Gambler

  12. MarcusArcus's rating of the film The Gambler

  13. Michael Peer's rating of the film The Gambler

    Literally nothing you have not already seen 100 times before. The performances are strong all around but nothing separates this movie from the other dozen it replicates.

  14. orangey's rating of the film The Gambler

    starts off good before the twenty minute mark when it starts drowning you in soundtrack; while Mark Whalberg's character's obssesive gambling is undoubtedly you never get anything to suggest to you why e's the way he is, despite the constant references to his family

  15. Strauhs's rating of the film The Gambler

  16. Addy K.'s rating of the film The Gambler

    The struggle is real. Extolling the virtues of nothingness, Mark Wahlberg is surprisingly good as a lit professor and suicidal gambler. It's the best performance of his career (which may not seem like much). Then there's Wyatt's effortless direction, Fraser's impressionistic cinematography and Monahan's sharp script—all elevating THE GAMBLER to minor gem status. It's the kind of problematic film you'd love to defend.

  17. In Space's rating of the film The Gambler

    Mark wahlberg achieved most unbelievable performance! he acts really good. And the plot really alluring. Love this movie!

  18. tjim's rating of the film The Gambler

  19. Scott Lucas's rating of the film The Gambler

    A fitting tribute to James Toback --for better and worse.

  20. FCC 86's rating of the film The Gambler

    "That's your fortress of fucking solitude. That puts you, for the rest of your life, at a level of fuck you. Somebody wants you to do something, fuck you. Boss pisses you off, fuck you!"

  21. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film The Gambler

    A great classroom scene surrounded by yet another unnecessary remake. Rupert Wyatt is not Karel Reisz. And it shows.
