Rounders Movie Review, Trailer
Directed by John Dahl
Starring: Matt Damon, Edward Norton
Rounders tells about two friends Michael and Worm. Michael (Matt Damon) has a brilliant order of mind and intuition, and perfectly applies these skills playing poker. His friend Worm (Edward Norton) is a card sharp, who has recently released from prison.
Worm gets sucked in to trouble and gets ripped off $ 15 000, which should be given as soon as possible. And then Michael, who packed up poker after a major loss, snaps into action. His desire to help his friend pushes him again to games in the underground poker clubs, forgetting about career of a lawyer and his girlfriend. He puts everything on the line, being sure that he will win …
The movie perfectly illustrates what can gambling result in, if you cannot control yourself. Excellent acting is supported by dialogues and monologues, in particular Matt Damon’s. The movie is one of the best in the genre of poker.
