    Synopsis


    21
    Director Robert Luketic adapts Ben Mezrich's best-seller Bringing Down the House: The Inside Story of Six M.I.T. Students Who Took Vegas for Millions to tell the true-life tale of six genius students who used their brains to beat considerable odds. Ben Campbell (Jim Sturgess) may be shy, but his wallflower reputation betrays his inner brilliance. As smart as Ben may be, however, if he can't pay his tuition he'll be kicked out of M.I.T. Fortunately, the answer to all of Ben's problems is right there in the cards. Recruited to join a team of extremely gifted students who have used their mastery of numbers to beat the odds at blackjack, Ben procures a fake identity in order to join the casino scammers and their brilliant leader -- eccentric math professor and stats genius Micky Rosa (Kevin Spacey) -- in some highly profitable weekend excursions to Las Vegas. Counting cards isn't illegal, and by using a complex series of signals, this team has cracked the code. Of course, it doesn't take long for Ben to become seduced by the glamorous Las Vegas lifestyle, and the attention afforded to him by his sexy teammate Jill Taylor (Kate Bosworth) finds him pushing his luck to the absolute limits. Laurence Fishburne stars as Cole Williams, the Sin City security chief who catches on to the group and makes it his mission to expose their lucrative blackjack scam. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Much to my surprise, this movie had me captivated from the beginning. The plot engulfed me as these M.I.T. Students took vegas by storm. Great seeing the little guys get ahead and beat the system. Kevin Spacey, as always, is fascinating while he portrays a cut throat professor out to get his. I would recommend this film to anyone with an interest in high stakes.

      This is a pretty good movie with a really cool storyline. It has a great cast as well. The only problem I had with it though is that it is a little bit unbelievable. Overall, though, I would definitely recommend it to anybody that enjoys a fun movie.

      To the reviewer who claims this is not believable - it wasbased on a book about a true story. The book was much more exciting than the movie and their actual signals were much more subtle. I pretty much got what I expected with this movie.

      First of all I've never read the book but I was always interested in it. From what I've heard from friends that this movie deviated from the book. Entertaining and fun movie. Cool story and good acting for the most part.

      I loved this movie and the fact that it's a true story makes it even more compelling. I'm a bit of a gambler myself so knowing that these guys took the casino to the bank made my night.
