Total nonsense.....
24 June 2009 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

What a respected actor like Charles Martin Smith is doing in this Canadian clunker, is a true mystery? Adding his name to the DVD case can get your attention, but unfortunately, the story itself is so badly written, Charles Martin Smith surely must have regretted his involvement. A lot about "The Last Casino" is annoying, including the totally unrealistic premise, casino security, motivation, and rapid camera movements. No one will be pleased here, not the gamblers, because it is so trivial, and certainly not the Charles Martin Smith fans, because his talents are totally wasted. You have been warned. - MERK
