Everyone gambles. They may call it something else, like the stock market, or real estate. But make no mistake, if you're risking something, you're gambling. And if you're gambling, then I'm the guy you want to see.

Very a simple film. Just are watched one time and didn't remember after. The plot hasn't got any deep thoughts. A stock criminal story with a one mega-star and a half-one mega-star. Too bad, this move doesn't show all the scheme of bets on-line. Audience won't see it. It's pity! Play of actors are ordinary. They have just done their job, nothing else. But don't worth to think this film not interesting. It is watching very easy and soft. Film is hold in suspense until the end. If you wouldn't turn on your a brain and you would only were relaxed, forgot your problems for all day, as well. It is special for you. For an one time was watched. The time will pass unnoticed.
