I rate this a border line good on the low side. Although it is about a gambler and his problems, it also is how his problem spreads to others. The only reason for the good is that it kept you wondering what the outcome will be.

The film is not as bad as what you think, but it could be better. Much better, but Mark Wahlberg made had made this film less suffable. The only intense moments are the the counting down the days in which he must pay $260,000 debt or else. Wahlberg plays a college professor who owbs the mob and he can feel the presure from them. "The Gambler" is the remake of the 1974 movie of the same name. I didn't see the 1974 version, but I probaby will someday. The only good that will come out of this movie is that people with gambling problems will sit though the movie and hopefully will seek help because of this movie.
