Audience Reviews for The Wager

A faith-based movie that didn't move me as much as others in the genre. Travis is fine as an actor, so that wasn't the issue. The character he plays didn't seem to have enough of a revelation / defining moment when his faith led him to overcome his situation, which to me is essential in this type of movie. The story is engaging enough, though it is not especially fresh or unique.

Meh. I don't have a problem w/ Christian films even though they're usually lower budgeted than mainstream films, but this one drove me nuts. I think what bothered me the most was Travis's character seemed to be on some kind of drug trip most of the movie. The other problem was the usual predictability of this type of film. Only one event caught me by surprise, and that was only because it was so ridiculous, and even that led to yet one more predictable part of the ending. And seeing Balki play a jerk and T.J. Tanner play a tramp both were a bit jarring. :p
