By the time all the bets are in, Cincinnati Kid appears to hold a losing hand.
Adapted from Richard Jessup's realistically-written novel, it emerges a tenseful examination of the gambling fraternity.
Marvellous performances throughout ensure interest.
The pool sharks in The Hustler have it all over the card sharks in The Cincinnati Kid, in spades.
A brilliant and utterly entertaining McQueen vehicle and one that fans of the actor will enjoy the most.
A slighter version of The Hustler, on a different sort of felt
...an erratically-paced yet stirring drama that benefits greatly from McQueen's mere presence...
It's the Hustler, with Steve McQueen playing stud poker instead of Paul Newman shooting pool.
it's the film's stellar cast, along with a gritty narrative and stylized direction, that makes The Cincinnati Kid the best poker movie ever.
McQueen's first teaming with director Jewison is not as fun to watch as the later Thomas Crown Affair, but the actor gives a cool, understated perfromance.
Even if you don't understand the game, you'll be biting your nails.
Falta-lhe a complexidade moral e psicológica de Desafio à Corrupção, mas, ainda assim, é um filme com personagens suficientemente interessantes para prender nossa atenção.
A little bit o'fun as McQueen leads a pretty gosh darn good cast in this typical tale of the kid against the powers that be. Eddie G.'s that power, the Man, the guy who's on top of the stud poker game and Stevie's set to take him down. Malden's good as the buddy, Weld as the good girl, and Margret as, what else, the bad girl, surprise.
Good acting puts this over, incredible cast coupled with interesting story. Ann-Margret is positively bursting with kittenish sexuality.
Crushing Ending but good effective long card scene that most likely influenced movies like Rounders or Casino Royale.
I hate card game and Steve McQueen movies but this one was great. It doesn't have the typical bullshit Hollywood ending and it's got a great cast.
