21 Film Review 4/10

This movie has been recommended to me many times, and now after watching it I honestly don’t get the hype. The overall idea is cool and card counting is interesting to me but the movie really drags on and the pacing often felt all over the place. I thought that there should have been more scenes that established the relationship between Ben and Miles. It often felt like he had no purpose to the story and was thrown in just to mess up Ben’s moral compass at the end of the second act. I also found that the casino montages were annoying, obnoxious, and much to plentiful. It often felt like those specific scenes were copying the style of Edgar Wright, but if that was the case then it was done quite badly. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone unless I knew they had an idea of what they were in for
