What most disappoints, then, is the film's aggressive ordinariness.

Argento can't adapt thrills of digital entertainment to the thrills of cinema.

Argento, the once great king of giallo, goes down the drain - which is the only royal flush to be seen in this sub-par gambling thriller.

This oddly flat serial-killer picture shows none of the baroque flair that characterizes the best of Italian horror filmmaker Dario Argento's work.

Though it's based on a promisingly outrageous premise ... the film unfolds as a tired, thoroughly conventional police procedural that might as well be titled CSI: Roma.

Fans of the cult helmer who expect the usual gore will be disappointed -- but there are compensations.

An okay story, a tepid and convoluted plot, no logic and silly dialogue.

Watching the online cards turn slowly (sometimes painfully so) in the film is to be reminded of how good Argento used to be when his aesthetic approach was less synthetic.
