Dahl's film features two of the late nineties most sought after actors in Matt Damon and Edward Norton and with a strong support cast that includes both Martin….
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth. The making of this movie is the true definition of the Hollywood dream.
Two lifelong friends, Brian Koppelman and David Levien were at a crossroads in their lives, working jobs they didn't love and trying to make it as writers.
The inspiration for their screenplay was conceived when the writers walked into a poker club for the first time, and two years later they were on set for the first day of filming.
It ushered in the poker boom of the early 's and provided a glimpse into a world we never knew we wanted or needed. Great movies make you want to spend time in the worlds that are created and this film is….
I love how the writing refuses to dumb down the lingo, but the narration still does a good job of cluing in the uninitiated. Cinematic Playlist — Uncut Gems.
How does John Malkovich still sound exactly like John Malkovich even when he's doing his best Russian accent. Norton was charismatically hateable in this.
Damon and Norton were awesome here though. But, the girl did? Listen, here's the thing. If you can't spot the sucker in your first half-hour at the table, then you are the sucker.
Enjoyable if you're a fan of poker and to the common film goers looking for a terrific flick that is sure to electrify the viewer.
Well crafted from beginning to end, Rounders is a wild ride and even if it lacks in some areas, there's enough good elements at work on-screen that make the film overcome its flaws and with an effective pacing set by director John Dahl, this is a well executed hustler flick that is very cool to watch.
With a great script and wonderful acting, Rounders is a film that you won't soon forget. Thrilling from the first frame onwards, Dahl's film delivers, and is never dull and highly entertaining.
If you enjoy these types of films, definitely give it a shot, you won't be disappointed. Alex r Super Reviewer.
Jul 27, Now everyone seems to have caught it and it has fallen into the realm of being overrated. It wasn't bad but it isn't great.
John B Super Reviewer. Jun 14, Really good. I hadn't even really heard of this film aside from the name once or twice, but just decided to watch it one day out of boredom, which ended up being a great decision.
Great cast, and storyline. Check this film out. Stephen S Super Reviewer. Nov 29, It may have its flaws, but "Rounders" is by far one of the most entertaining films I've ever had to sit through.
From the wonderful, genuine performances of its actors to the clever, snappy dialogue of its script, "Rounders" is well-made all around, and it's so perfectly paced that not once did I find myself checking the time.
The film has its problems, and I'm not a huge fan of the ending, but I greatly enjoyed myself while watching it. Stephen E Super Reviewer.

He even quotes Worm saying that Knish "sees all the angles but doesn't have the stones to play any" after Knish had already refused to help financially.
Mike changes his mind and decides to continue playing. Mike doubles the blinds at the risk of losing everything to KGB again, and possibly his life.
Irate at the missed chance to win it all, KGB begins to play on "tilt". In the final hand, Mike baits a boastful KGB into going all-in, and defeats him with a nut straight.
KGB throws a tantrum at having been lured into a mistake. Principal photography for Rounders began in December ; it took place mostly in New York.
Exceptions include the law school scenes filmed at Rutgers School of Law-Newark  and the State Trooper poker game and parking lot scenes filmed at the B.
The site's critical consensus reads: "Richly atmospheric and colorful performances contributed to the movie's entertainment value. It's essentially a sports picture, in which the talented hero wins, loses, faces disaster, and then is paired off one last time against the champ.
Norton's performance never really goes anywhere, but that's okay, since the story is just an excuse to lead the characters from one poker table to the next.
Peter Travers, in his review for Rolling Stone said of John Malkovich's performance: "Of course, no one could guess the extent to which Malkovich is now capable of chewing scenery.
He surpasses even his eyeballrolling as Cyrus the Virus in Con Air. Munching Oreo cookies, splashing the pot with chips a poker no-no and speaking with a Russian accent that defies deciphering "Ho-kay, Meester sum of a beech" , Malkovich soars so far over the top, he's passing Pluto.
We might believe he can play cards, but we don't believe he needs to do it, in the way, say, that the year-old Mozart needed to write symphonies.
He's not consumed with genius. He's a nice guy with a skill.
