When two or more players go "all-in" the inference of this movie is that the person that wins the hand at the showdown automatically eliminates all others who were "all in". There was no consideration given to chip counts in this movie in "all-in" situations. See more »
I have to agree with another writer on here when he/she says "were you watching the same film" to the people who wrote the positive reviews, This film is bad, from beginning to end, there are no redeeming features whatsoever, the script, the direction. The acting was abysmal, the lead actress Miss Swain, well her "acting" was like watching paint dry slowly, and i can only assume the reason why Mr Madson & Gosset were there is for the money. The strange thing is, there are some writers on here comparing this to "Casino" and there is even mention of "The Godfather, when in reality this film should not be spoke of in the same breath as those. There are a couple of nice things to say about the film, 1) when the credits roll, and 2) the actress "Avrielle Corti", who plays young Ace,deserves to be the only one to get some credit for her acting. You can decide for yourselves, either to watch this, or give it a miss, all i can say is You have been warned, stay well !
