RATING:

qhqs

NOTABLE STARS

Michael Imperioli

PLOT

The tragic real-life story of poker legend Stu Ungar and his struggles with drug addiction and money management.

SKILLS

This is a great bio pic about one of poker’s all-time legends.  The story of Stu Ungar is fascinating and tragic, and the film does an excellent job of bringing it to life.  It would be hard to be a poker fan and not find this story incredibly interesting.

LEAKS

None.  This one’s solid, no glaring flaws.

POKER AUTHENTICITY

Great.

The poker action is always secondary to the character drama, and therefore isn’t of great importance, but it certainly holds its own and provides a convincing backdrop for this true story while adding a layer of detailed complexity to the overall film.  This one is definitely a must watch for any true poker fan.

 

Watching poker is great, but wouldn’t you rather be playing? Play free poker.

Psssst! We’re on social media. See, what we do there.
