Literature professor Jim Bennett leads a secret life as a high-stakes gambler. Always a risk-taker, Bennett bets it all when he borrows from a gangster and offers his own life as collateral. Staying one step ahead, he pits his creditor against the operator of an illicit gambling ring while garnering the attention of Frank, a paternalistic loan shark. As his relationship with a student deepens, Bennett must risk everything for a second chance.
Marky Mark try'na sell a watch to a stereotype made me kinda shame-laugh, and the last act was an improvement on the first two, but _The Gambler_ is not something I would recommend to, realistically, anyone at all. _Final rating:★★ - Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._
As for me, that one-time film. It is interesting, it shows a great picture but that's all. I think that this film could be better if producer read more gold casino reviews and understand who are the true gamblers and how they think. But it is a good movie and if you don`t have what to watch in the evening you could watch that film.
