Product Description

Amazon.ca

A little drunk on its own arcane exotica as a gambling movie, Rounders is a film that takes us inside a world of high-stakes card players but falls short on such essentials as character development, relationships, that sort of thing. Still, it is a real curiosity, written by a couple of guys (David Levien and Brian Koppelman) who appear to know something about the dark underbelly of card hustling for fun and profit. Matt Damon stars as a reluctant law student who can't put aside his subterranean career of playing poker and blackjack for big money. After he loses his post-grad nest egg to a weird Russian kingpin (John Malkovich)--and also loses his disgusted girlfriend (Gretchen Mol) in the process--Damon's character turns to an unreliable old buddy (Edward Norton) for a dangerous game of sharking wherever there happens to be a game underway: frat boys, cops, bad dudes, you name it. Norton appears to be living out every young actor's fantasy of re-creating Robert De Niro's prototypical head case in Martin Scorsese's Mean Streets, and while his performance is burdened by obvious quotation marks, his estimable talent still shines through. Damon's charm and intelligence bring some oomph to the curiously flat proceedings, and while his hushed, soul-bearing scenes with Martin Landau (as a law professor who takes a shine to the kid) seem gratuitous, they're still nice to watch. Behind all this is director John Dahl (Red Rock West), who is not exactly at the top of his game here but who brings his distinctive toughness to the crime-noir tone. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Damon at his best May 28 2004
Format:DVD
Matt Damon has quickly established himself as a A-list celebrity. This is one of his first lead role movies and he shines.
Mike McDermott(Damon) is a rounder. He plays poker for a living and he's doing it to earn his way through high school. After he loses all of his money to Teddy KGB(Malkovich) in a high stakes game of poker he calls it quits. He's doing it becuase of his girlfriend Jo(Mol). He gets a job with another friend rounder Knish(Turturro) and it looks like Mikes done.
After Mike's best friend Lester "Worm"(Norton) gets out of jail he wants to get Mike back into poker. He can't believe he reformed for a girl or that he's working for Knish. Worm is a con artist who is skilled at pokere but takes to many chances. Mike has his back and nobody says anythig. He gets Mike back into the game and it starts to threaten his relationship with Jo. Mike gets some advice from Judge Petrovsky(Landua) who urges Mike to get back into the game because it's who he is.
Mike gets back into rounding and gets right back to his old winning ways. What he didn't know is that since Worm had been out he'd been running up debts and using Mike as a fall back. They now owe a huge debt to the one man they can't run from and the man who beat Mike..Teddy KGB. Mike must now win back the money to pay KGB or it could be the end of him.
Matt Damon is awesome in this movie. This guy makes slik moives. Oceans 11 and The Bourne Identity were slike movies. This moive is just at slik as those two. Damon is believable and you just love watching this guy act. He puts out the best performance in the movie and this is one of his better movies.
I like Edward Norton in the movie. This guy plays the con-weasal character to perfection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie for all Poker Lovers June 18 2004
Format:DVD
This is truly the movie that keeps on giving. Despite the fact that I've seen this movie over 15 times and I know most of the lines by heart, the joy and despair I get from watching the movie over and over again never dies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb March 2 2004
Format:DVD
I don't know the first thing about playing poker other than playing meaningless games with family after Thanksgiving dinner.
This movie is mesmerizing in that you want to head to Atlantic City after watching it and put what you just learned in 2 hours watching this to good use. Incredible performance from Edward Norton and the dread shown by Matt Damon as he is sucked further into the lifestyle he tried to get out of previously is amazing.
Also underlooked is a nice performance from John Turturro as the seasoned old pro grinding out a living.
Quite good!!!!

This is one of my favourite movies and is what catapulted me into the poker scene. There is a certain allure to the character Matt Damon plays; an intelligent law student that uses his intelligence to become a highly successful law student. It a movie I watch regularly and highly recommend.
Go to worldpokerrewards.com and we will buy this dvd for you. A great addition to your dvd library.
