Something Old and Something New. Update after 4yrs
9 January 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Oh' Not them again, what was i thinking "The Wild Card" was going to be a re-make of a classic a western shoot out, well NOT a new theme something we have seen all before, Ransom / kidnapping and some mindless shoot-outs filmed on location (Vagas) i guess, but being Hollywood could have been shot anywhere. Don't expect too much from this little thriller with production as good as money can buy, a very good try but just didn't make it for me. The actors did their best with little they had. Left to last i think what comes out best is someone who has had enough experience that got this flick thru is Hillary and as for Woods she seemed to be there for something to do while babysitting, but hey i could be wrong. See the movie and enjoy. ......Well its been a few years my first impression was trying to compare to a huge budget flick, But seeing it again after a long time i am impressed with how much i missed and congratulations to the producers sorry guys i could not have done better here. Wild card holds up with some small "cult like" following in its own right. Im glad that i can say your actors we are familiar with before and after wild card give this movie the most pure acting performance in its class.
