“This is your job. You want a clear conscience, go start a charity. But if you want your own island and your boss says you gotta go out there and take a beating, you go out there, take it and come back to work and say, ‘do you need me to do it again?” – Ivan Block

Brief Synopsis – A college drop-out gets involved with an Internet Gambling guru and gets sucked into the world of seedy business.
My Take on it – Justin Timberlake plays the title character who goes from handling online gambling at his college to a major player for a very shady American businessman living in Costa Rico.
This movie is interesting and entertaining but on a very standard level. It doesn’t really give off the feel that it’s plot and storyline are innovative at all and it seems just slightly better than just an OK movie.
Somewhat enjoyable 90 minutes.
Bottom Line – OK movie, was entertaining, but didn’t feel that there was anything new here.
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
