Trailer Review: The Gambler

“Fuck you!” I’m liking what John Goodman is throwing down in this trailer. The cast is probably the best thing this movie has going for it. Although director Rupert Wyatt has recently done well with Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The plot of The Gambler sounds kind of bland and unoriginal. Basically a guy with gambling problems gets into trouble with some gangsters. *Yawn* It sounds so boring because it is a remake of the 1974 film starring James Cann. But this cast, starring Mark Wahlberg, Jessica Lange, and John Goodman, has me intrigued. Especially since I have never seen the original film. The trailer itself is also unoriginal and follows the usual format these days. Some dialogue from the ‘bad guy’ followed by a quick montage meant to make the film seem fast and exciting. I definitely would not waste money seeing this movie at a theater, but it might be enjoyable on a boring night.
