Canada catches up
3 October 2004 | by Beautiful_DisasterSee all my reviews

Usually, Canada is known for it's movies with heart and feeling, but lacking in entertainment. Now that many companies are coming up north to film, it seems Canada is making some great movies on their own with The Last Casino.

The premise of the movie is provocative, and the writing is genius. The Last Casino was both entertaining and credible. There are specifics to this movie, where it is apparent that a lot of thought and effort was put into the plot.I loved the suspense and closeness that was created through the types of shots the director used.

I suggest that everyone try to see this movie (it not widely available), and as Canadians we should be proud this is one of our products.
