21 is the worst film I have seen in years and it astonishes me that so many people recommended this film to me.
The film follows an MIT student, Ben (Jim Sturgess) who is trying to find a way to get enough money to go to Harvard Med School and has no where to turn. When one of his professors, Prof. Rosa (Kevin Spacey), notices his intelligence abilities in class he recruits him for group of students who count cards as a team and make money playing black jack on the weekends. Ben reluctantly joins but can’t resist the rush and earnings he is able to acquire from his talents. As he falls deeper into the game the risks get higher as both the Professor and a casino security advisor (Lawrence Fishburne) eventually take a problem to his antics in Las Vegas. Luckily he falls for his partner Jill (Kate Bosworth) and as they go back and forth, will they or won’t they, they begin to form a bit of a partnership and work through adversity together.
I won’t spoil any more of the plot for those of you that still dare to see this, but there isn’t that much to look forward to in this picture. [Read more...]
