gamblerReviews for this film from our members:

  • José Arce @ LaButaca.net [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Tras hacer gozar a crítica y público con “El origen del planeta de los simios”, Rupert Wyatt opta por el ejercicio de estilo para reafirmarse como creador, pero cede demasiado a las delicias de la industria. No es mala película, desde luego, pero no es notable.
  • Jason Bailey @ Flavorwire
    • Excerpt: The Gambler’ is just shy of a great movie — it doesn’t quite add up like it should — but it is a reminder that there’s a very fine actor lurking in Mark Wahlberg. It’s just a matter of pairing him with material that matches his intelligence, and ours.
  • Nicholas Bell @ Ioncinema
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: This remake of Karel Reisz’s 1974 film…features a great performance by John Goodman and falls together well enough as its anti-hero keeps shuffling his deck the more he’s backed into a corner, but …never really gets us into his protagonist’s head.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: It is easy … to observe this character with a certain degree of fascination. It’s enough.

    • Excerpt: You can’t win with a weak hand.
  • Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
  • Diego Salgado @ Guía del Ocio [Spanish]
  • Tom Santilli @ Examiner.com
    • Excerpt: The Gambler doubles-down on characters and moments that the filmmakers must have thought were pretty slick, but this movie is ultimately not nearly as cool as it pretends to be.
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: It’s not hard to understand why Wahlberg and friends were drawn to remake ‘The Gambler,’ but they botched the job badly.
