This new film has a superb cast, with potential award winning performances from Danny DeVito, Kim Basinger and -- particularly -- Forest Whitaker.
Tense, tight script that keeps you guessing 'til the very end. A new writer, and I'd love to see other stuff he's written.
If you're looking for a typical light, frothy Hollywood film with a happy ending, look elsewhere: 'Even Money' gives you a strong dose of real life -- as several lives unwind because of addictive gambling.
The same producer took a chance on "Crash" -- this film, in my opinion, is definitely in the same league.
