Critic Reviews for The Gambler

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

There seems to be a lot missing in this shortened telling of the story within a story for it to be more than moderately effective.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Makes little to no sense at all

March 27, 2002 | Rating: 1.5/5

A polished but superficial period drama that fails to illuminate what could have been an involving story.
