Two for the money
Plot Outline: After suffering a career-ending injury, a former college football star aligns himself with one of the most renowned touts in the sports-gambling business.
This time I went to the cinema during the afternoon to see this exact movie. I went to Colombo Shopping Center due to the fact that it is not on the other theaters where I usually go so… Well, the movie is great, still it was not what I was expecting. I was expecting to see him on casino gambling, etc… not really on sports… fact is probably I didn’t read the plot outline as I should. Both actors are great but Al Pacino is still the best! No doubt. All the movie is full of action, not leaving the watcher to sleep. Although all the movie is full of surprises, the end is a real surprise. Something you would normally not expect but things seem to work out pretty ok and there’s a happy end for everyone. Just the way I like it!
The only thing I missed in the end was a little more of american football. You see some nice plays sometime but not enough. :) (I know, that’s not the point of the movie!)
