"Twenty-one - winning is. There is, on what to eat

April 11 2008

Underfed lovers scams are invited to the table! At this time, you are requested to not count the Ocean's, and maps. If the amount is derived 21, you win! More or less - a loser. These are the rules of the game in the new movie-scam Robert Luketic ("Legally Blonde", "If the mother-monster").

The plot is very, very silly.

Ben Campbell - a shy A student from the University of Technology - take a group of talented students who are in secret, every weekend, go to Las Vegas to "warm up" the casino. To help them - an extraordinary teacher of mathematics, statistics genius Micky Rosa (Kevin Spacey), who created the mysterious formula. With the help of counting cards and complex system of signs the team can beat the casinos big time.

The film "Twenty-one" into a movie on the book by Ben Mezricha "Beat the casinos," written as much in 2002 and is based on real events. The story goes that in 1994 one of the outstanding student in the MIT fly Altantik City on fighting Holyfield. During those weekends, this guy saw how mathematics has helped his friends to beat the casinos for a few thousand dollars for a couple of hours. After the young man himself was involved in the game. Between 1994 and 1998, these talented students have earned in Vegas a few million dollars.

Author of the book several years gathering information about the group Students MIT, used a sophisticated system of counting cards. He met with former members of the team, with himself the main character, with experts in security systems and casinos with all the others who have had at least some relevance to that story. 6 years after publication of the book director Luketic took up its filming.

To us, deprived of Ocean's attention, this film - something new. At first glance, this is one big infomercial Las Vegas for a second - another beautiful filmets casino, on the third - there's no George Clooney, and hence this is something new! However, without the "star birth" does not do. Kevin Spacey plays the bad uncle, who used talented young people for their own benefit and rigidly substitute them in case of a game. Plays well, so with a twist, that if Prestressing can zatryastis knees.

The game of "Black Jack" will not fall asleep, and I give you one hundred percent, you are going to try to learn to count cards and anticipate moves. The main thing that you did not want to beat the casinos big time, because there is a chance it would end badly. True, if we were all so talented, I'd not be sitting here and not written to you about another new cinema.

In general and overall, the film was a success. The girls are beautiful, and unexpected denouement, and the words "Still a little bit and straight to heaven, and life is good ..." strongly swirling in your head when you see how guys dress in the best boutiques and without stint, having fun in the best clubs. In the second part of the movie the author recalls that, according to the law of the genre should add a bit of morality. Therefore, the beautiful, peaceful life guys breaks off, and afterwards they will be tough to beat, rob, cheat. Fortunately, it almost does not slow down the plot, which generally never loses its rhythm until the end makes the denouement a little infantile.
