For some reason, the actress in the main character does not seem to fit in great - just my impression.
Incredible movie. Very well acted. Gripping. Emotional. Should have won awards.
Perhaps the best movie I have seen in the past year. Jessica Chastain's performance Oscar worthy as far as I am concerned. Loved the way how she narrated the scenes throughout, starting with the opening ski race as well as flash backs in her past life and right to the end. A very fascinating story that had me involved through. Idris Elba also was good.
LOVED IT!!!!!!!!! #JESSICA CHASTAIN!!!!!!!!!
I liked this movie. I am not a poker player but do gamble on horse racing. Even though the movie is a little long I never lost interest. They moved the story line along well and explained the poker action to non knowledgable viewers. It also worked on various levels, family relations, legal thriller and all the various situations Molley faced.
Loved it from start to finish. Jessica Chastain is a bad ass in this movie! From her acting, her outfits, her confidence in tough situations. Great portrayal of a female lead without any nudity ! Bravo Idris Elba has some great dialogues in this as well. Go see it!
Production was great!
This movie was excellent! Best movie Ive seen in years. And that its a trie story is unbeleivable. Molly was able to re-invent herself at every challenge she faced with grit, smarts and determination. Which is evident in that after retiring from running her poker games she became a CIA anti-terrorism analyst and Molly caught Osama Bin Laden a few years later!
Great story,want to see it again, Chic has a set.
Not quite as boring as Manchester By The Sea...but it really comes close.
I had no expectations about what this movie was about; don't even know how to play poker; didn't even know it was based on a true story. This was fantastic story! Well done and wow, to the real Molly Bloom. You got balls bigger than any guy I know. I'll be reading your book also!
seems like most viewers went to see Chastaine, not the movie.
Outstanding....much better than expected
Enjoyed the movie.
Really enjoyed this movie and thought Jessica Chastain was excellent.
Disjointed and a bit confusing. A t.v. movie and not a good T.V. movie.
Chastain is unsurprisingly terrible. All she can project is anger.
Excellent movie! It keeps you interested the entire time. Great acting!
At a time when virtually everyone is trying to clean up the country of opioids [also called Molly] this release is totally fuked up.
This was a great movie. Excellent portrayal of the real Molly Bloom by Jessica Chastain. Fast- paced and kept your interest throughout the entire movie!
Oscars hello this is your winner
Great movie. Exceeded expectations!
Overall good movie. It never bored me and never captivated me . I never knew that Jessica chastain could look so hot and could act on this level . She was amazing on al levels .
a good film . nothing real special but its not something ur going to want to leave just a little slow in parts acting is pretty good plots really good and poker! poker is super cool!
I thought the movie was great! It keep my interest throughout! I truly enjoyed it and may go see it again!
simply put a good film
Ok movie; alittle long. I zzzz’d out a few times. Really nice acting acting in 2nd half and great ending. Also, I play Poker frequently and people do at times play over their heads and addiction is also an issue. All that isn’t particularly relevant except I can’t imagine someone running a card game and being owed 2.8 million dollars and then going out of her way to protect the players. Poker is generally pretty cut throat.
Yet another movie where cold fish Chastain plays a icy, detached and uptight character. There is some impressive CGI effects that convince the audience that Chastain actually smiles at times. How bout that.
The guy at the window gave us the wrong movie,we going to see all the money in the world. Lucky this was a great movie.would highly recommend it.
Wow. Jessica Chastain at her best. Totally absorbing and entertaining. I am going back tonight to see it again.
After all the hype, I was disappointed. A half hour in, I was thinking Chastain's performance was wooden. Later on, I saw that this was kind of Miss Sloane II. Instead of a career-absorbed, coked-out lobbyist who has shut down emotionally, we get an illegal career-absorbed, coked-out (and boozed out) high stakes poker game operator who has shut down emotionally. Idris Elba is good. Kevin Costner, not so much. ----------------69/100.............guru bob
