Way too many flaws original story is better

This is one of those good idea movies that looks great on paper but then falls apart in execution. First the super smart kid doesn't even seem all that smart. For example, he hides $300,000.00 in his dorm room where his... Full review

A really good movie. During the movie I totally forget that the guy is doing everything for harvard med school. Then at the end it reminds me by him telling the dean of the school his story. This movie is funny,... Full review
Overly dramatic, overly stupid

Kevin Spacey plays the same character in every movie that he has ever done... Kevin Spacey. He is almost as bad as Morgan Freeman, who is a pro at playing... Morgan Freeman (Linger Longer). This is just an overly stupid movie... Full review

21's smart story is well worth the watch in itself but its too bad that with some decent actors like Kevin Spacey and Lawrence Fishburne doing anything but their best and over-consumerism 21 stumbles. Meet Ben Campbell, a smart MIT student... Full review

I saw this movie based on the user reviews in this forum; sometimes critics get it wrong. But they were right on this one. The story and the premise are very good, but the actual execution was very plain and uninteresting.... Full review

It was okay. The story line was a little hectic. It could have been written a little better. I was a little blah. The actors did an okay job but I was not to fond of the way that some of... Full review
Ok movie, slow paced.

21 is an okay film. The story is interesting, the acting is good. My biggest complaint is about the pacing. At times it seemed much too slow. I think it could be 30 minutes shorter and not lose anything. How many... Full review

This aside, 21 is a fast-paced tale that makes winning look not only easy, but a lot of fun. Based on a true story of M.I.T. students who hit Vegas in the 90s with a winning formula, 21 takes us along for the entire ride. ... Full Review

I rarely go into a film wanting to dislike it....There was so much potential for this to be an excellent film, but it failed.....Therein lies the film's main flaw.....Even when I want to dislike a movie, I don't let it affect critical thinking.....It boasts quite a large cast, all of whom are flat, poorly drawn characters, some of whom even border on stereotype..... ...

Disappointing thriller that's let down by a tedious script, a frankly ridiculous final act and some dodgy overacting by Kevin Spacey. ... Full Review

It's a slick, enjoyable watch but it serves no purpose and ultimately undermines the entire film. Ben (Jim Sturgess) is a shy, nerdy kid who's struggling to meet his tuition fees. In addition to Ben's predictable character arc ... Full Review
