21 was a film I won in our annual Oscar Pool competition, and it does manage to make blackjack and card counting dynamic and exciting, though with apologies to the filmmakers, the narration, even if justified in story terms, gets boring very quickly. Based on true events - there really was a team of MIT students who hit Vegas with a mathematical system and won big - the film creates its own characters and relationships. They're definitely watchable, and there are a couple of interesting twists, though it all goes on a bit too long. The protagonist's reconciliation with his nerdy buddies gets a bit schmaltzy, though it ultimately pays off, and though the gambling is glamorous, there's a lot of it and it doesn't actually make math sound sexy in the MIT scenes.

Story was brilliant, pacing was excellent, great acting from Jim Sturgess & Kevin Spacey, a very entertaining drama-thriller! Thoroughly loved watching it!!

The dream of robbing VEGAS. You like the idea but the result probably won't be, just like this movie.

I think someone's been tampering with the 'Buy this movie' link.

I am a person who disliked it. I disliked it because it was rubbish.

This film is utter shit. Got all the clich├Ęs in the book, the plot is predictable, the actors are uninterested and just poor, really. And the script is embarrissing. Can't figure out how they talked Kevin Spacey into this. Waste of time.
