Croupier is taut, tense and enthralling, as smart and surprising as its protagonist.

Polished and adroit ado about next to nothing, Hodges's film owes everything to Owen, who nails the vaguely unsavory, unreadable, half-lidded hunks that inhabit every profitable entertainment-industry outpost.

The choice of Clive Owen as the star is a good one. He's got the same sort of physical reserve as Sean Connery in the Bond pictures.

For 95 percent of the way, it is an engrossing tour of an attractively seamy side of life and a fascinating character study, despite having a novelist for a hero.

With its fascinating, multi-layered plot, intelligent screenplay, and subtle-yet-undeniable tension building, Croupier is an engrossing, stylish thriller that never threatens to wear out its welcome.

Gambling and gamblers are a movie staple, but Croupier comes at the sport and its population from a fresh and, finally, rewardingly wide perspective.

Clive Owen conveys a sharp, cynical intelligence that rolls off the screen in waves whenever he widens his glittering blue eyes.

Not since 1971's Get Carter has British director Mike Hodges made a movie as deep, dark and compelling as this thriller.
