The Gambler (2014)
A different Mark Walhberg!
Intriguing & satisfying!
I think, we get to see a different kind of Mark Walhberg aura in this one. Well, not entirely different - but yes, you would be able to spot it if you're a fan.
I really enjoyed Jim Bennett's character. One reason behind that could be that I'm kind of like the character myself - not from the gambling point of view, but from another that caught my eye.
And what's that?
Jim is one of those characters who pretends to not care about anything. Anything at all. But at some point, we could see that, yes, he too, cares about something that he doesn't wanna lose. Example? The talented blonde girl (!) he appreciates, or the goodwill for Lamar's future!
Overall, I'd say it's a pretty good film, and an underrated one as well. The way it brings out a gambler's habitual mistakes in a subtle and enjoyable way - I think you'll enjoy it. Happy watching!
