Critic Reviews for All In: The Poker Movie

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (7)

[An] energetic, if overly worshipful documentary.

Amusing and informative (and hyperbolic) as it is, "All In: The Poker Movie" is a documentary whose intended audience is unclear.

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.

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.

Top Critic

Instead of sustaining a significant cultural story, at almost two hours, All In feels like an energetic but overlong highlight reel.

Audience Reviews for All In: The Poker Movie

Maybe it would be different if I was an avid poker player...or played poker a all. I just felt like it wasn't a very well made documentary.

As much as I love the subject matter, it does nothing for me except catalogue the history that I previously knew of the game. Fun to watch the Moneymaker heyday, and the classic Amarillo Slim footage, but it didn't really do much to draw my attention away from playing poker on my iPad.
