The Gambler (a movie review)

Even though the storyline of a movie could be better crafted, I will sit through the movie because I like the cast. Such is the case in The Gambler, which is about an English professor, played by Mark Wahlberg, who leads a double life going to an underground casino and gambling on borrowed money. Certain scenes did not seem to fit in the movie, and the events that lead to an ending that explains the main character’s motivation seem exaggerated in their gravity.

I’ve ranked below the Mark Wahlberg movies I’ve viewed (and can recall) to date; 1 is the best and the last is the worst. Check periodically for the ranking update by clicking on the “Mark Wahlberg” tag.

1. Lone Survivor
2. The Fighter
3. We Own the Night
4. Planet of the Apes
5. The Departed
6. The Gambler
7. Ted
