A story about this — 3 years ago
I’m a sucker for Las Vegas location films. Can’t get enough of them. This one was a “serious” Vegas movie, and it gets a bit scarey when Lawrence Fishburn turns on his “bad ass” mode. But, hey…that’s what the Vegas “edge” is about.
I agree with others that it had a weak story line, but there is some great photography and the mini-romance between Sturgess and Bosworth adds a bit of spice. The DVD also has some nice featurettes on playing Blackjack and how the film was made. At the very least, it takes you out of your own world for a couple of hours and, to me, that’s entertaining.
