Note: Hey readers, I thought this would be a pretty cool review to post. It is very unpolished, as it was the first review I wrote, back in May. (Interesting coincidence: 21 is the first film I wrote a review for, and 21 Jump Street is the first review I put up on my blog.) It’s also about as short as a member of the Lollipop Guild, but it’s sort of cool to see how far I’ve come in my review writing.
The very short Review:
Robert Luketic directs a stacked tight cast (Jim Sturgess, Kate Bosworth, Laurence Fishburne, Kevin Spacey and Aaron Yoo) in this grand, really entertaining, suspenseful film experience.
A math professor, Mickey Rosa (Kevin Spacey, American Beauty) takes 5 M.I.T students under his wing to count cards to make some money in Las Vegas. Remember, it’s not illegal – it’s only frowned upon. When a brilliant student (Jim Sturgess, Across the Universe) has to earn cash to find his way to Harvard Med, he takes a chance on the elite mathematician team. Lucky enough for him, a spot has just opened up.
This is just overall a good, interesting and entertaining factual-based story.
