More than a card game...it's a way of life.
I purchased this DVD after catching the film late one night on TV. You know the ones that come on in the early hours. You usually think to yourself 'I'm tired, I'm going to bed'. But every so often something draws you in, and makes you forget about how rubbish you will feel in the morning. Rounders was one of these gems. To cut a long story short, it's about a Poker player (Matt Damon) and his friend (Edward Norton) who play Poker for a living (the term 'rounder' refers to someone who lives off money made from card games.) My reasons for enjoying, and eventually purchasing the film were down to my love of Poker. It has been cited as a film which inspired many pro's to give up retirment and start playing again, also also encourage new players. However, there is much more to this than just a story about a Poker player. It's a story about a meaning of life. It's a story about dreams, hope and ambition. It captures the essence of Poker players, of course it does. However, you could relpace to subject matter with something else, and it wouldn't lose it's meaning . If you are interested in Poker, then this film NEEDS to be viewed. But even if you aren't, you might understand why people get so involved, or become involved yourself. Definitely one to watch.Read full review
This is a great movie. I had bought it with the intention of watching it and then selling it on but I decided to keep it. Edward Norton plays an excellent part as a card cheat in this movie and the story line is involving an well told. top marks for this one.
