Audience Reviews for Holy Rollers: The True Story Of Card Counting Christians
I'm really not sure how I feel about "Holy Rollers." Christianity and gambling don't really mesh and that's why people will actually watch this. Whether it is curiosity, a love for controversial topics, or a desire to judge these guys, it's hard not to be interested in this concept. "Holy Rollers" chronicles a group of pastors and church members who count cards at Blackjack to support themselves as they dedicate the rest of their time to the church. While this group treats gambling as a business, so of the drama that they face seems un-Christian and that's where I get a bit upset with this film. Still, it is really fun to watch these guys camble thousands of dollars as if it was Monopoly money. This movie has a lot of appeal because of its "WHAT?!?!? factor," but realize that these men are portrayed very honestly and you might not always like what you see as their story progresses.
No movie has wanted to make me start card counting then this movie. I think one of the big things that can be learned from this movie is that if a group of people working together that can truly trust each other can accomplish so much. You can learn a ton about card counting in this super interesting story.
The subject matter is far more captivating than the technical aspects would lead you to suspect. For me there were no mind-blowing observations or arguments presented, but it kept my attention and does warrant some discussion.
