Bon… Ok, les personnages sont bien joués – surtout, à mon goût, Jim Sturgess. C’est plutôt bien filmé – et les parties, sont assez vivantes ! C’est pas si mal expliqué – en tout cas, posé, parce que savoir à combien est le sabot ne m’aide pas trop à savoir pourquoi le joueur gagne plutôt que la banque, mais bon… L’ensemble est cependant assez anecdotique, pas de réelle tension ou suspense, des histoires annexes qui ne m’ont pas tellement intéressé… L’ensemble se tient bien et est distrayant mais pas mémorable.

J'adore ! MGMT et la fin du film, surtout.
