The Cincinnati Kid is a highly disappointing account of gambling gone bad. Norman Jewison' s direction is good as well as the acting, but the screenplay is off. The first half of the film is pointless, none of the actual action happens until the the last half hour. The film is slow and boring with a pointless romantic subplot weighing it down. The entire cast is good but they can't keep this mess of a film afloat.

It's a fine classic like almost all Steve McQueen-movies. McQueen is the king of cool and the supporting cast is good too. Tuesday Weld is pretty but Ann-Margret is the most seductive chick in town. The cock-fight scene and the final poker party is fantastically photographed and wonderfully edited.
