"I was playing for Mister Lee, and for that gentleman over there. I'm not actually a gambler."

I don't think it'll be a total surprise if I'd say that "The Gambler" is about a gambling addiction. Enough movies were made that shed a light on this issue and eventually you expect while watching such a movie, that feeling will come over you that resembles that of the addict while he's trying to make a profit at the gambling table. That intense feeling in your abdomen when you are about to win a substantial amount of money, the tension, the relief and the gnawing anger when things aren't going as they should. And I didn't have that feeling at all while watching "The Gambler". In the end I looked at it in the same way as Jim Bennett (Mark Wahlberg) : indifferent...
