Roulette is a form of gambling where players choose to place bets on either a single number or a range of numbers, the colors red or black, or whether the number is odd or even. The bunker in the film is also code-named "Roulette" because it changes without notice and only a few people know where it is on a given day. The bunker in the film being called "Roulette" not only references the casino game and how it resembles the way the bunker operates, but also is a reference to Jeremy's gambling addiction. See more »

The movie was a thriller start to finish. The best part was that what would seemingly be predictable never was and kept me enthralled the entire time. Great cast, Stephen Dorff gives a great performance. For those of you that may not be a fan or don't know much about his work, this is really a movie to see, he brings everything to the screen. The story is fun to watch develop, full of twists and turns and witty dialogue that adds just that right amount of sarcasm to intense situations. The movie is fantastically shot, kudos to the director and cinematography as well as the fx team that put together some great material for the filming, I would really like to catch some behind the scenes footage of the shooting of this movie. All in all this movie is one to watch as it pulls together the last things you would expect throughout and is great entertainment.
