Quotes

Nick Wild: During the Blackjack table scene just as Nicky's big win streak is about to start about 41 minutes he is dealt King of Diamonds and nine of Diamonds; totaling 19. The dealer's upcard card is King of Spades 10 value. Basic Blackjack strategy dictates, as Nicky points out, the dealer is likely to have a 10 value hidden card potentially rendering his 19 a loser.

Not Bad...
5 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...If you can make it to the last 1/2 hour, then it gets good. I'm a Statham fan, so had to see it. It's a little slow, but it was worth watching. Not too many fight scenes, but when they happen, they're good! Kinda 'The Gambler' meets 'The Equalizer' movie. Milo Ventimiglia best known from Heroes as Peter Petrelli does a great job as the bad guy in this film. Wish he had more roles in mainstream movies. Not a huge blockbuster but worth the watch if you can wait until the story gets going. I cant think of much more to write but i have to have ten lines to submit my review so here they are. ( i think short reviews will get better responses. It was great; it was bad, don't see it, etc..) Why do we need such a long review? I myself don't like to read long reviews, just tell me if the movie was good or not!
