  • Two of a kind: on the road with Mississippi Grind

Synopsis


Mississippi Grind
Down-on-his-luck and hopelessly in debt, lifelong gambler Gerry (Ben Mendelsohn) drifts through life in Iowa with little to look forward to. Unexpectedly, he comes across the sharp-dressed and quick witted risk-taker Curtis (Ryan Reynolds), who passes through his quiet home town. The two befriend over drinks and betting, and chart a course to a high-stakes poker game in New Orleans. As their road trip begins, the checkered past of both men threaten to derail their blowout shot at redemption. Impressive directing duo Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden helm this intense character study of addiction and the power of money. ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi

    I'd guess that probably not too many people have heard of Mississippi Grind, it was released in a limited run for theaters and was mainly featured on Direct Tv's Ondemand service. It's a good movie, there's been a lot of good hype about this movie, a lot of good reviews and articles written about it, I went into it expecting something special, but to be honest I was a little let down. It may be because I was expecting a slightly bigger movie, maybe a funnier movie, but that doesn't take away from the acting performances of its two leads. Both Ben and Ryan do outstanding jobs with the material and with of them are at their best here, just know that this is a low budgeted slow burn affair. When its all said and done and the credits roll this is a film that'll make you think, make you feel, and maybe even make you relate.

    We didn't make it to the end of the movie. I want to say we made it about 20 mins in and everyone in the room wanted to turn it off or leave the room. Maybe we didn't give it long enough. But in the 20 mins that we watched there were 5 people watching it and it didn't grab the attention of one of us.

    Yet another story of someone who is down on their luck. They owe money so they bet their life away hoping for that one big win to cover their butt. It is over played and so used.

    If you are a gambler? You will understand the psychology behind this movie. A little uneven here and there but, I found it entertaining and worth watching.
