FILM REVIEW: The Gambler (2014)

Mark Wahlberg is actually a good actor. Despite some generic action films and his recent decent into the Transformers franchise on his CV, he has been in some great films and delivered Academy Award calibre performances (or nomination worthy at least) on occasion. 584 more words


The Gambler (2015)

By day a literature professor and by night a gambling addict, Jim Bennett (Mark Wahlberg) is in even more debt than his students. Despite owing $260,000 to an underground gambling ringleader and another $50,000 to a loan shark, Jim is determined to keep on betting; first borrowing money from his mother, Roberta (Jessica Lange), and, when that’s soon squandered, turning to gangster Frank (John Goodman) for a top-up, the latter of whom threatens to have Jim murdered if he can’t pay up. 528 more words

Review: The Gambler (2014)

Mark Wahlberg’s fine and committed performance isn’t enough to save The Gambler – Rupert Wyatt’s remake of the 1970s crime drama – from being slight and dull. 147 more words
