The Elvises have left the building...
First of all, I must admit that my expectations to this movie was not at the higher end of the scale. However, it turned out that director and director Michael Winnick managed to pull off quite a surprisingly nice movie, and an entertaining movie at that too.
I was initially interested in watching the movie because of the cast, which included Gary Oldman, although in a minor role only, unfortunately. But it also had Christian Slater in the lead role, and he actually carried his weight quite nicely.
The storyline was quite interesting, as it was fast paced, had a really solid script, and the storyline was really unpredictable. And most of the times, the twists and turns that the story took just makes you go "what just happened?" And it worked out so well in favor for the movie.
Writer Michael Winnick has also managed to create some very good, witty and interesting dialogue for the characters in the movie. And that really helped the movie to stay fresh and interesting, if that is an appropriate term for such. Lots of great chatter and banter back and forth between the various characters.
And then, of course, there was the acting. As I stated earlier on, they had a great cast ensemble whom did really good jobs with their given roles and characters. And this was true from both the lead and supporting cast.
"Guns, Girls and Gambling" was a genuinely entertaining movie that really turned out to be a nice surprise. If you haven't already seen the movie, then I can warmly recommend that you take the time to sit down to do so.
