Trivia

In a 2017 interview with Entertainment Weekly, Gemma Arterton said about the film, "It made me stop wanting to be an actor. The whole thing wasn't right for me. It wasn't the type of thing I enjoyed watching or doing. I had a moment where I thought, 'Okay, I got into this because of Michael Haneke and Lars von Trier and now I'm making action movies.' Not that I wouldn't ever do [action movies] again but I realized then that it wasn't for me and I decided to do more theater and collaborate with people." See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Richie Furst: 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.

User Reviews

 
A One-Hour Justin Timberlake Music Video & 30 minutes of Ben Affleck Blinking Repeatedly
4 October 2013 | by GodofGSXR1977See all my reviews

Mindless entertainment, check.

Justin Timberlake being Justin Timberlake, check.

Ben Affleck being his same character from Boiler Room but with more blinking while delivering frat-boy douche lines, double check.

Hot girl standing around being hot, Check.

FBI agent way to young and random to be a believable yet cliché FBI agent, check.

Justin Timberlake not nearly getting his ass kicked enough in this film, inexcusable but CHECK.
