Typical teen movie average hand made with taste. In fact, there is nothing unusual in some moments even banal. It is the film is not about blackjack (close-up card table and the VoiceOver, counting cards does not count), most of love, friendship, confrontation between student and teacher and, of course, the "light" money, though the excitement here too small.

The main character Ben — nerd dream Harvard, which he closed the stack of papers. It honestly studying, working, along with other botanists developed a robot for the"cool" contest "209", not knowing to he is able. And all and left if not a teacher of non-linear equations, which is noticed to myself as it turned out later, workhorse. Working in command other gifted and using a complex system of obtaining money from the casino, Ben feels "easy" money. Here like should start something interesting, but after a hysterical quarrel with another member of the team and love line understand that end General predictable, and the moral is simple — study, work, do not forget your friends and other.

However, the film does not is it off middle and keeps, although not too convincing, the screen.

Of the actors I would like Jim Sturgess. Have he turned the image of the downtrodden botany, constantly constraining, confusing and spinning eyes in the beginning, but after transforming into a carefree resident of Las Vegas. Kevin spacey as usual, fulfilled its role on a fine (no wonder it in the end dressed in cowboy). In fact, to the confrontation between the characters of these two actors and builds the ending of the film.

From explicit minuses: the game of one same the casino, the lack of secrecy (appearance changes only Kate Bosworth), some duravest of the plot.

Immediately noticeable that the film the book, but there a substantial deviation. In principle, anything categorical no.

Acting no one Shine, but and spacey and Sturgess play a good role. Counting on a more powerful soundtrack. Surprised that during all the time there was only one "Vegasusa" composition and then, it is used "Friends of Oushena". By the way, let no one will find a fun scams under the fiery music, as just mentioned "Friends of Oushena". The genre of the film — drama us pretty well make it clear.

In the story, a young mathematical genius Ben, a student in MIT, with an average score of 5, understands that if don't get a scholarship, then will not be able to personally collect three hundred thousand dollars for tuition at Harvard medical school. On the rescue comes Professor Micky Rosa, convincing Ben that if join team player can he earn the right amount. Yet zastenchivyy Ben disclaims suggestions goes. On the following day to him a job she comes in he am explains sense of life. Our hero, of course. she believes and still joins the team. And on all the action and begins.

In General, the film leaves a good impression with that are two hours after the release of the hall still seems short. About the denouement I silent — see for yourself. She good at the same time bad, depends on with how you look at it.

Film on the eight, but with my love maps, Vegas and everything else, put 9 points.

PS As already noted by many smart people in one or less related gaming — the film is in favor of the casino. Very many, considering the Basic Strategy described in the film is very simple, go to play casino based on a huge win. After all, they now I know how to cheat the casino, the more so ten years ago someone has failed. Here everything and burned not knowing that the whole strategy is based on the theory of large numbers, Yes, and tracking systems in casino learned to detect such acts.

A gifted College student dreams of becoming a doctor. However, soon the chief of his passion becomes training, card. A young man meets the other students, who free time beat the casinos of Las Vegas in using mathematical methods.

In General, the idea of the film, to put it mildly, strained. Well that the young tend to desire a rich and inherent vanity — this is understandable. But someone tell me able to understand all the intricacies of card counting? Certainly, this system works — pure mathematics generally a thing that are extremely strong. One episode with a change of variable is worth — the Monty Hall problem in action: the probability of events in one same the case can look quite different. But the uninitiated viewer will be extremely difficult to understand the quirky methods at which is a play casino. The more given that the filmmakers somehow completely rule out such a significant factor as the dishonest dealer that the casino meets all the time around. But if the dealer was cheating, then what could be mathematical calculations? Well so, reasoning on the subject.

But in General he the film is pretty good. The plot is interesting, sometimes stressful, there are standard components of drama — love, betrayal, intrigue, and the choices. Yeah and actors look good: the squad is young, but looks good. But when in charge of the entire action Kevin spacey and Lawrence Fishbourne — for this aspect can be calm. Well selected and music film.

Throughout the rest of the "Twenty-one" is perhaps the standard one — is suitable for in order to while away the evening.
