This movie's target audience is poker players. It's not for people interested in cinema in general, simply curious about poker, or even non-poker playing gamblers. The movie would not make much sense to anyone but poker players.
This movie does not have high production values, excellent cinematography or music, or inspired sets. The direction is actually surprisingly good, considering that this a very low budget, independent, special interest film. It will only appeal to it's true target audience, to whom the story and the characters are the main attraction.
Do not be mislead by the aggregate rating... it should get the lowest rating from those to whom the movie was not targeted... and many of those people to whom the movie was not targeted saw it and graciously provided their (negative) opinion... a correct one from their point of view.
So, if you are a poker player, this movie will definitely appeal to you. If you are not, it definitely will not.
