Storyline

When you become a detective in Warsaw Indiana - you go to Poker Night, where you play against some of the best cops in the business. They tell you stories about their time on the job - their successes and failures. When new Detective Stan Jeter leaves the game, he is caught by a vicious psychopath and locked in a basement. Using the stories he heard at Poker Night, he must match wits against his captor - and save not only himself, but the young girl trapped in the basement with him. Like Seven and Usual Suspect, Poker Night combines thrills and twists and turns that will leave you guessing till the very end. Written by Anonymous

Extremely disappointing film. The presence of some solid actors can't save this mess. This movie seems to try very hard to be something that it just can't pull off.

The lone bright spots were the performances of Ron Perlman, Giancarlo Esposito and the villain (whom I won't name so as to not spoil anything.

Esposito and Perlman gave good performances but their screen time was limited, don't go into this film thinking you'll see a lot of them.

The villain was probably the brightest spot in the film. The flashbacks featuring him were very funny and he was a very menacing character.

Poker night had precious few strong elements flanked by a great deal of terrible ones, it's not worth your time.

I strongly advise others to skip this film.
