So much anticipation for this film. However, it was a little disappointing. The trailer made me expect a lot more, but the movie was very, very good. It's like a thriller film that really had no atmosphere and was very predictable. I didn't like the characters. They were too cold and they didn't make any sense. The main character was very cold. I liked his mom though, and I like the actor who played his mom. I didn't like the husband though. He didn't make any sense at all. The ending wasn't very good either. I don't think it was very good. In the end, I would recommend this movie to people who like thriller films or the thriller genre. Overall, it was a good movie. It's better than some of the other films I saw this year, like The Departed and Ladykillers.

I have seen this movie before, it's one of those movies that I like to see over and over again, but it's not a great movie. I don't really know why I like it so much. Maybe it's the fact that it's so powerful and so very good. What I really liked about it was the way it was shot. It is a very clever way to put it. It's a very powerful movie. And the acting is good, especially from both of the leads. I also liked the way the story went from the beginning to the end. I liked the way it moved. It was really good. And it's not the best movie I've ever seen, but it's still good, and I like it.

A tense, dark drama that feels like an indie movie. "Molly's Game" is about a guy, played by Gary Oldman, who is an excellent chess player but has problems with his drink and sex. The movie looks as if it was shot in a small house. The acting in this movie is outstanding. The film's biggest downfall is its title. The title doesn't do the movie justice. There are more accurate, better-known titles for the film. I think the title is a misnomer, and it gives the movie a "campy" feel. Overall, "Molly's Game" is a good movie and worth seeing.

It is a well-told, high-stakes poker game between a Russian mobster and his lawyer played for real money. As the world's richest gangster takes a gamble with the integrity of his team's law firm, the stakes only increase. As expected, this film is not for everyone, but it will hold you in your seat and keep you watching. The story itself is a little over-long and has a few lulls, but once you're hooked on it, you will not want to leave. The acting is superb, as is the direction. A great film for those who like suspenseful films. I give it an 8 out of 10.

I don't think the negative comments I have seen on this film are based on any objective view. This film is a very entertaining, enjoyable film with some very powerful scenes. It's like a dream, like a dream, like a dream. It's a pretty good movie, and I recommend it to anyone who likes a good movie. Overall I give it a 9/10.

If I could make my personal life so much better and better, I would. This movie is filled with great performances from all the cast, especially the one who played the tough, but still pretty innocent, and even funny Mr. Russell. The movie doesn't focus on the main character, but it is based around the movie, and all around the acting and the story are great. The story is like a storybook that everyone can relate to, the style of directing and the beautiful cinematography are also great to watch. The acting is outstanding, and the direction is perfect. I think this is one of those movies that makes you feel like you've lived it, like you could be the one that decides what goes on next. It's a must-watch movie. Go see it, it is really great.

You'd think that an event in Hollywood history would be an event in history, not the movie that follows. "Molly's Game" tells the story of the infamous 2000 election where a scandal involving the Oscar's winner, Meg Ryan, and a crime ring involving the press, led by a charismatic Hollywood executive, gave the White House the opportunity to win back the public's trust and calm tensions in the wake of the terrorist attacks of 9/11. The story focuses on the event and the various people and companies that were involved in the race, including the actors, the press, the FBI, and the government of the United States, and it examines the lasting effect it had on people and politics in general. The film is a gripping drama that creates a compelling backdrop for the story. The characters are interesting and the plot never loses focus. It's very easy to follow and the scenes are acted in a naturalistic manner, which helps create a believable feel. The special effects are top notch. The scenes are very well done and the actors portray their characters very realistically. The scenes are gripping and very tense. It is very well acted and it works well for a film about a political scandal that affected the country. "Molly's Game" has a very dark and serious feel to it, especially the scenes relating to the media, which is very disturbing. It is well written and a very well acted film that I found was very compelling. The supporting cast is also very good and each character has a different purpose in the story. The acting is excellent. "Molly's Game" has a very intriguing plot, it is very well written, it's well acted, and it's well written. "Molly's Game" is a well made film that is highly enjoyable to watch. It's very interesting to follow and you'll be interested in the story. This is a very good film that was well worth seeing and I recommend it. "Molly's Game" is a great film about a political scandal that affected the country and is well written and well acted. It is well worth seeing and I recommend it.

The role of Molly Bloom as played by Maggie Gyllenhaal was so strong and wonderful to watch. And the acting of Billy Crudup and Cate Blanchett was outstanding. Overall, this is a very good movie. The main point to me was the whole movie, there was not much dialogue, but it was very interesting. Not very much detail on the characters, but a very good story. The story was very intense and so well-thought-out, it had to be seen to be believed. Not a lot of words can express my feelings. Also, the colors in the movie were amazing. It looked like a theater play, not the typical movie. It was like something special, even though the story is somewhat predictable, and it was a very interesting story. This movie was very powerful and thrilling, it is one of the best movies that I've seen in the last year. I strongly recommend it, it is definitely worth seeing. 8/10

Ben Affleck's film of the tale of poker magnate John Alwyn (Richard Armitage) and his daughters Molly (Jamie Foxx) and Meagan (Maggie Gyllenhaal), has more twists and turns than an Arabian desert, and an overwhelming amount of money to be earned. The story is focused on John Alwyn as he tries to hold the line of the game as the movie unfolds, and how he and his daughters are dealing with a full time mother, her alcoholic father, and a gambling addiction, while trying to get out of debt. The movie does not disappoint, as it has the most eye-popping visual and dialogue from every character. The film also has a fantastic use of music and sound, from the brief music by Elliot Goldenthal to the overbearing use of rock music throughout the movie. However, the film does fall short in terms of several other factors. For one, while the ending is good, I found it slightly predictable, and it could have been a little better, although I will say it was a great ending to the film. The acting in the film is excellent, with Armitage doing a good job in the lead role. Foxx and Gyllenhaal do a good job as the girls, but the acting was not as good as it could have been. While some parts of the film were engaging, the overall film was not one that left me with an overall good feeling, which is a very good thing to have. However, the ending of the film is amazing, and I found myself thinking about it for a long time afterward. In conclusion, this is a great movie, and will probably leave you a little satisfied. However, the movie could have been a lot better, with a little more focus on the relationships in the story, and with a better ending.

I was quite interested to watch this film after seeing the reviews of the film's positive responses. I have never read the book, but this is a film which is easy to watch without knowing the plot. It is worth watching, if only to see the performance of Julianne Moore, who has given a memorable performance. You see a lot of her, but there are also a lot of other actors which you can recognise, and they give good performances. However, it is the young talent of Hugh Grant that really stands out, as he's in everything. Hugh Grant is one of the best actors I've ever seen, and it's great to see him doing his 'actors' here, he's a real actor, and he is a joy to watch. I must say that I find the acting of Hugh Grant's character a bit irritating, but the character of the rich mongolian (Prince) was actually quite interesting and well acted. I was hoping the character would be played by a black actor, since he has been very lucky with the casting. The story is quite long and drawn out, but the performances are just so good. The story line is interesting and engaging, it's difficult not to care about the main character and his journey. The story is quite predictable and it does not surprise you at all, but that's a good thing, and it does not bore you. I did like the scenes in the rain, and the scenes of Hugh Grant in the mongolian country, the scenes of the young Hugh Grant making his own clothes and running around, and the scenes of Hugh Grant going to Africa to try to find a cure. The best part about this film is the performances, Hugh Grant is the best, and the young Hugh Grant, is just as good. I hope to see more of him in the future. I must say that this film has a few faults, but it is still a good film and I can recommend it. I hope that the film receives a lot of praise, and I can only hope that Julianne Moore will receive more opportunities to do the same. I do not know where she is from, but I do know that she is a talented actress, and I hope she continues to be. I hope that this film will get a better rating than it did here on IMDb, because I am sure that it will do well. The best film that I have seen recently, and one of the best films of the year. 8/10.

Molly's Game was a film that was put together by a writer who is obsessed with real-life crime stories. As a result, the movie is a very detailed account of the downfall of a gangster with a bad reputation. Now that we are in the 21st century, that sounds familiar, so I am not sure why this movie was even made. It's still very good though, and definitely not boring. In particular, the role of Diane Kruger was very well done, and she will be a familiar face to many of you, as she played Anna "The Fixer" Diamond in True Detective. There were many good performances, including Patrick Wilson as the leading man, Michael Douglas as a key character, and David Oyelowo as one of his henchmen. I must also give special praise to Dustin Hoffman, who has been really good lately, especially in Sense and Sensibility. Overall, Molly's Game is a good movie that you should definitely see. 8/10

Lol, I've read reviews here on IMDb saying this movie was absolutely terrible and for the love of god, they were right. I'm not going to waste too much time on that one because it was really unnecessary to make any kind of comment about that. No, this movie is actually really good. First, the acting. The acting is pretty good, there's no flaws. The movie is really good too, the direction is also pretty good, the pacing is just right. The pacing is really fast and it flows really well. But that's not enough. I think the real reason why this movie is so good is that it's more than just a thriller. Yes, it's a thriller and yes, the premise of the movie is somewhat predictable. But the movie is also well written, has a good and engaging script. I think the writers did a really good job and the actors really did well. It's a shame, some of the characters were really weak, but I guess that's because they were not particularly strong characters and the writers tried to make them some kind of characters with a lot of potential but failed. That's a real shame because I think they could've done a lot better. The movie is also a drama. It's not a drama about poker, but about the life of a professional poker player. The characters, the plot and the drama is really good. The movie was really good, it was really emotional and very well acted, but it could have been better. This movie was also made in 2017, and it's more than a decade. So, it's not so far off from the movies we're used to. But this movie also could have been a lot better. It had a lot of potential but unfortunately it was not realized. I give this movie a 8/10 because it's a really good movie. I give this movie a 9/10 because I was really satisfied with the movie. I recommend this movie to everybody who likes a good movie and a good drama. It's not a masterpiece, but it's a good movie. It's also a good movie for me to watch with my girlfriend.

This movie is really interesting, I didn't expect it to be that good, but it was actually pretty good. When I first saw it, I was like, wow, the acting is bad, the character development is really lacking, and the plot was really boring. When I actually watched it, I was like, wow, the acting is good, the character development is good, the plot is really boring. The only thing that I really liked about the movie is the music. The music was really good. It was really catchy, especially the first one, "I'm Only Sleeping" by Lana Del Rey, which I really love. The scene when Molly is going home, where her dad is yelling at her, it's so cool, and so perfect. The movie, I would definitely recommend you see it.

I enjoyed the movie immensely. I actually enjoyed the first 20 minutes, I didn't like the second half of the movie. I thought that the second half was very predictable and "cheesy", but it was still a good movie overall. The only thing that I thought was a little bit off was how they dealt with Molly. The ending was a little too dramatic and overly dramatic. I thought that it was completely unnecessary. The first half of the movie was very exciting and gripping. I thought that the movie was completely worth watching. Molly was amazing and the acting was great. My friend was convinced that she was a better actress than Reese Witherspoon. I think that Reese was the better actress. I would recommend this movie to everyone.

A great film. The last time I saw this film it was at the old Allen theater in L.A. It was filmed over the past decade but was the first time I had ever seen the film in its entirety. It was a bit depressing at times but what was you'd expect from an Allen film? It's also interesting to note that it was released in the year of the massacre at Columbine High School. Is this a comment on Allen's political and social views? Whatever, the film is wonderful. Worth seeing!

The movie is worth seeing, and the acting is fantastic, however, the writing is atrocious. Every scene has at least 3 characters speaking in the same sentence, with their dialog being "oh wow I was actually interested in that". The writers need to write a story that follows these rules. No one who doesn't watch the movie will realize that. The movie might as well have been called "I was actually interested in that". And what is with the weather. Ever seen the one about Texas? It looks like the title is called "The storm that struck Texas" then the name of the character is changed to "flooding". I'm not sure if they switched it around so it would look like that in the credits, but it's like the movie is written by a child. Also the weather is never mentioned, which is just weird, since I'm sure the storm had a huge impact on the weather of Texas. Overall, I would say it's worth seeing, but it's very hard to believe the movie was made in the 1990's.

I think this film would have been a huge success had it been a direct to DVD release. With the vast number of US and UK releases of the same film, there are enough copies to make it the only way this film will be sold. Also, most films with this cast, make it into the US market. There are some films that come out the US and do so without this cast, just as a make up job. Most of the films they have on the shelves are made by Hollywood studios, so it's no wonder this film made it to the US market, if it had been a direct to DVD release. The opening title card does not tell you the name of the film, so, I would advise reading the page on the front of the DVD. It says "The Mollys Game" for a good reason, I think it says it all. The movie is set in the 1970's in northern England, where a crooked police officer, played by Philip Seymour Hoffman, is forced to take bribes to do his job. This film is about corruption and the dirty deals that can be made when the financial motive is not enough to keep an honest police force. The corrupt police officer has to deal with a lot of difficulties, as he is also dealing with his own personal life problems. I really enjoyed this film and think it was well acted. The cinematography and story telling was very good and made it very realistic. There were some wonderful scenes in this film, such as the shootout in the bridge and the funeral procession for the prostitute played by Mia Farrow. The sexual scenes were pretty explicit and could be very disturbing to some people. However, I think it was accurate to portray how women in the 1970's would have felt in that era, especially the prostitutes. Philip Seymour Hoffman gave a very good performance, and it was a shame that he didn't get nominated for an Oscar for this film. His character of David Mills was very sympathetic. He has a perfect balance of sweetness and tough side and portrays the character of a man who was born to be a policeman, but eventually had to give up on his life, and ultimately became a police officer, who is dealing with his own personal problems.

There are few films I've seen that I can truly say made a significant impact on me, that truly touched me and that still affected me long after the film has ended. This is one of them. It's a haunting, beautiful film. The movie is based on the true story of Molly Bloom, a mother of two who was falsely accused of murdering her husband in a jealous rage. After several years of false imprisonment, she is freed and finds out that she was not guilty of murdering her husband. That's not the only horrible thing she does though. She begins to spend her days plotting revenge on all the people who wronged her. She starts out by torturing a co-worker and then she begins to write about the people she thinks she killed. There's an excellent cast here, including Joaquin Phoenix, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tilda Swinton and Reese Witherspoon. The story is gripping and the characters are well developed. The film also has a fine score and some interesting cinematography. The last scene in particular is one of the most powerful I've ever seen. It's haunting and powerful and it truly touches you.

A lot of people don't like Molly's Game. I don't know why. It is not very violent, and the story is really interesting. I found it to be very good. I think that most people who haven't seen it think it's very boring and doesn't move very much. That's not the case. The main characters are very interesting, and I think that the plot is great. I am glad that they didn't include a lot of political and social commentary. The movie doesn't really talk about that at all. It's just about real life situations. This is a great movie, and it's a very good movie.

I actually saw this movie at the Toronto Film Festival, where I was given an advance screening. I think this movie is really excellent, but there are two things that bother me. The first is the casting of Ben Chaplin as the killer, he was awful. The second is the fact that the movie itself is so long that it almost becomes boring. I love the short shots of him walking around the movie. I also liked the cutaways to the terrible murder. Also, I thought the ending was a little disappointing. I love how the police are able to use the phone to call Nick's mother. However, I felt that the police did not use it in the last few scenes. Overall, I thought this movie was great and I really recommend it to all people.

I really did enjoy this movie, a truly engrossing story of love, sex, and greed. I was really surprised at how well it was shot, and that I could see the actors in the movie. I love that there were no red herrings in the movie, I would have liked to see more of the characters, and more of their story. The story is intense, and it is a little hard to follow at times. I have to say though, it was very gripping. The ending is a little difficult to understand, and I would have liked to have seen more of it, but the characters were so well developed, and the film was told in such a believable way, that it really worked well. I would have loved to have seen more of Molly, but I think she was a little under developed in the movie. She wasn't the focus of the movie, she just kind of had the lead role, but that is okay, I think she was one of the most interesting characters in the film. I also love the ending, I think it was brilliant, I just wish it was a little more clearer. But all in all, I think it was very well done, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Predictable plot, nothing much of substance, but fun enough to watch and learn a little about the life of a genius. Very well shot and edited. David Fincher's direction and script were great, as was Casey Affleck's acting. The story of one young genius's search for truth and justice is riveting, and the film makes the journey feel real, real enough to make you want to know more about the characters and why they did what they did, and even if the plot ends, you'll still want to know more.
