This is a must-watch for any poker fan and a pretty neat film to consider if you're a fan of films that provide action and tension without explosions or gunfights.

Damon is pretty good, but his character isn't incredibly deep. Norton is an a-hole throughout the whole movie, which makes his performance a success in that sense. I can't tell if Malkovich's Russian Accent is more embarrassing to americans or russians, but it makes his every line endlessly quotable and his performance somehow endearing.

This is cult classic. Matt Damon and Ed Norton are just great in this film. Its a film about texas hold 'em poker so if you are not into that you may not find it as interesting. Great acting and a solid story make this movie a worthy watch...and John Malkovich!

When you don't know shizz about Poker and yet, you still appreciate everything about this film. Damon is a perfect counterpoint to Norton's MASTERCLASS, loveable Worm. I think I've watched this film 40/50 times. An acting clinic.

Just another poker drama. But a good one.

One of the few films where it's okay to hate Ed Norton

Rounders is one of my favorite poker movies! The plot is really interesting and Matt Damon and Edward Norton give very good performances playing amazing poker players. The movie shows what gambling can do to people and if you have faith you can do well.

Rounders is a perfect rainy Saturday, basic cable movie. Like a less-assured Ocean's Eleven, the drama is solid with plenty of lightness in the characters and dialogue. In the lead, Damon is meh, but he's surrounded by acting royalty giving their all (Landau, Norton, Malkovich, Turturro). Over-the-top, silly, and melodramatic, but the attitude and simple story are a full house of fun...get it? Full house?

There are better gambling movies than Rounders. It's not as charming as Maverick, not as cool as Ocean's Eleven and not as entertaining as The Sting. This movie makes it hard to root for the protagonist, and the story really doesn't draw you in until the final third. I bet this was probably more impressive in the 90s.

Like Good Will Hunting with betting.

One of the few movies with Matt Damon I really like. He does a great job of playing a gambler whose relationship with his friend is bringing him down. You won't like this movie unless you like Texas Holdem. One of my all time favorites.

The movie has an amazing cast, but it falls down due to many cliches and lack of stakes. Matt Damon does well, but the movie's plot is rather generic and Norton's character is only there to cause problems. Some side characters are just there for whatever reason, and its a standard cards movie. Watch Mississippi Grind instead.

Bolstered by a gritty atmosphere and a strong cast, "Rounders" is an entertaining yet fairly underwhelming foray into the underground of high stakes poker.

Edward Norton and Matt Damon explode onscreen in a deeply underrated 90s classic.

Ending was kind of boring. Fun to see thought process of a poker player
