Nothing funny, nothing sensational, nothing joyful; perhaps a little interesting
Worth to watch for spectacular views from Las Vegas, the movie 21
starts with a "Maverick"ish gambler movie opening. Though, this movie
is not even half good as Maverick. We initially see how Jack and Ace
forms a lovely couple. Then we meet our leading actor Ben something,
the singing frog of the movie "Across the Universe", as a very
sharp-witted campus kid trying to persuade the dean of the Harvard
Medical School to access student scholarships.
A gambler gang of campus kids leading by Kevin Spacey drives Ben and
the others' -including Kate Bosworth as another campus kid- minds over
gambling in Las Vegas by means of proved mathematical methods of
counting cards. Ben, who must have swallowed a calculator, becomes the
smartest one of all. We are witnessing our campus kids how actually
they gamble with cheating over cards at a casino. Best thing of the
casino scenes are the chance of getting know how the backstage of
security cams goes. There are a bunch of technicians trying to catch
whoever does cheating on the games.
The actual happenings of the story is hidden behind the script.
Accordingly, it forces us to undone the knots. Yet regrettably, the
search for straightening the story is just getting boring and boring
until the end starts to occur, while leaving mentioned questions
Thankfully at the final, knots are getting undone. For five minutes
long, while Rolling Stones-You Can't Always Get What You Want is
playing, we see how the life takes on shape for each character. Then we
end up at where we started; back on the faculty dean's room, Ben is
still talking to the dean. Whole movie has passed in this room, we
realize. The dean looks persuaded by Ben for his scholarship..

Doesn't even work as a fairytale
I was intrigued by the preview of 21 because I'm a sucker for films
about gambling, and this is a film about gambling ~ it's the
director/writers gambling with our intelligence, hoping we're
completely devoid of brainpower, which would make us stupid enough to
buy any of the claptrap we see on screen in this bonafide turkey.
The beginning is good, it's only when the true fun should be starting -
when Ben starts going to Vegas as part of the blackjack team headed by
Micky (Kevin Spacey) - that the movie begins to seriously fall apart.
Vegas is a huge town, with literally hundreds of casinos, but these
clowns wind up going back to the SAME casino, over and over, using the
SAME signals to one another (their ridiculous signal to indicate a hot
table, for instance), until it's more than blatantly obvious to the
security overseer, Laurence Fishburne, that these stooges are playing a
very dangerous - and stupid - game.
The story then continues on its deathtrail of stupidity, with the
storyline and the characters' behavior becoming more and more
ridiculous until Ben - duhhhh - loses Everything and has to - double
duhhhh - find a way to outsmart Micky (a 2-year-old could outsmart this
guy) and get his life back together. The way it's done is even stupider
than what proceeds it, what with Ben luring Micky back to the SAME
casino for one last shot at the Big Money. "They'll know us there,"
Micky says, "So we'll have to wear disguises." Oh yeah, genius - a
cowboy hat and fake mustache really make Spacey look like a totally
different person (not), and even stupider --- they show up using the
SAME signals that they've used all along; yes, these giboneys are that
Then, to insult the audience even further, the writers tack on what
they believe, in their deluded states, to be a double surprise ending.
By this time, the only surprise is that anyone is still left in the
