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.

Don't Understand Why The Ratings Are So Low
29 October 2013 | by kwalt1989See all my reviews

I get this movie maybe being a high 6 or low 7, but a 5.3?? That's just crazy! I loved most of what this movie offered. It had a great story line, in-depth characters, and a great setting. Honestly, I was just refreshed from having to see another sub-par superhero movie, but I digress. I really liked JT and Batfleck in this movie. Both of the characters had a lot of depth to them as well as some mystery. I'll give it to you that the ending was sort of predictable, but I didn't think that it made the movie any weaker.. I thought the Costa Rica and online gambling ideas that the movie was based on were really fresh, new, and something of worth. I also really enjoyed the corruption bits of it as well. The cast in this movie, I thought, did a really good job.. And every hole was filled pretty much. I don't know what else you really expect in a movie.
