[An] energetic, if overly worshipful documentary.
| Original Score: 3/5
Amusing and informative (and hyperbolic) as it is, "All In: The Poker Movie" is a documentary whose intended audience is unclear.
| Original Score: 2/4
So padded with cheerleading that it doesn't have time for a serious exploration of poker's place in the broader culture or the consequences of its rapid rise and global reach.
| Original Score: 2/5
Douglas Tirola's pic seems a bit late for the poker craze, and at any rate will be preaching largely to the converted.
"All In" lays down some interesting hands but sometimes can't raise the stakes, though "Rounders" star Matt Damon lends a bit of celeb flash.
Instead of sustaining a significant cultural story, at almost two hours, All In feels like an energetic but overlong highlight reel.
Frankly, it could have used a touch more disrepute.
