Watchable despite how slow it run. Has some terrible and unlikable prison scenes. The whole story is sorta revenge and redemption mixed with casino games. Characters like Tiffany Hardish also did nothing useful in the movie....guess she was introduced as a celebrity ad. Oscar did a very good job with his role...looked and sounded like a serial killer sometimes. A major twist which comes later in the story makes everything sensible and fun. Lovely movie with it's flaws.

I actually walked out of the theater on this one. When great actors deliver flat dialogue you know something went wrong. None of the motivations behind these characters were believable and they didn't have enough chemistry to make me feel as if they should even be in the same room, let alone friends. If anyone liked it I'd love to hear why.
