Rounders is the best poker movie in my opinion. I think even if you don't play poker though, it is still a really entertaining movie that anyone would enjoy. Great performances by Matt Damon and Edward Norton.

The poker scenes are the best part - an interesting cat and mouse game of tension, bolstered by strong performances from Damon and Norton. Some of the drama outside the poker room is a little sappy, but the film brings it all together for a striking conclusion.

This is definately a movie for those who enjoy watching or playing poker. I really enjoyed watching it with my dad because we are both big poker players. It is a slow paced movie with kind of a corny ending, but when playing cards and you try to be dramatic, there is only so much you can do. I recommend this movie to card players to see but if you don't play, stay away because I doubt you will get through it.

This is really a great movie. It has everything: suspense, comedy, and drama..., oh, and Edward Norton and Matt Damon. So, you really can't go wrong with this one.

Rounders review

Mike McDermott (Matt Damon) looses a huge amount to Russian mafioso named Teddy "KGB" (John Malkovich), a skilled Oreo eating owner of an illegal poker club. Jo (Gretchen Mol) leaves Mike for catching him playing again after vowing he would stop his habit of playing cards. Knish (John Turturro) offers many advices and offers Mike a decent job. A wise and humble Petrovsky (Martin Landau) helps McDermott with his problems. Lester 'Worm' Murphy (Edward Norton) causes troubles for his his supportive and trust worthy friend.

The pace of the story, editing and acting (with then unpopular) was superb, if only the other factors like soundtrack and direction were better. Only qualms I had were the lack of a strong female character, sometimes flighty plot and a fitting conclusion of Worm....

Great Poker Flick!!!

John Dahl (of The Last Seduction and Red Rock West fame) delivers another flick about the seedier side of life in the new character study card-shark movie Rounders. Starring Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting and SPR) and Edward Norton (chilling supporting actor nominee for Primal Fear) with a superb supporting cast including John Turturro as Kinish, John Malkovich as KBG and Martin Landau as Professor Petrovsky, Rounders follows a card shark on the "rounds" from one poker game to the next in New York's underbelly back halls and clubs. Known as a great "reader" of people, Damon (Mike McDermott) has made his money for his law school education by using his skills at the poker table. His patient girlfriend (played convincingly by Gretchen Mol) has had enough of his late night/all night rounds, so...
