Saw 21 last night.

Meh.

The cinematography was weird. Throughout the first half, I was thinking about how awesome it would be to make a fast, bouncy vid to it - all the crazy circular shots, the weird angles.
But it didn't really go with the, you know, movie. The angles seemed out of place most of the time, and the crazy shots of Vegas worked, but there were way too many. It got a bit ridiculous.

Not to mention that everyone in the movie was a douchebag. Kevin Spacey for selling out the main character, Whiz Kid. Whiz Kid for selling out Kevin Spacey right back, because dude! The guy told you that they kill card counters the second time they find them. I don't care how big of a douchebag your teacher is, you don't hand people over to be killed.

Also, everyone else, for various reasons.
I could see it being so much better if they actually stuck to real life - it could be quieter, more indy, with less needless action and violence that never actually happened. It'd be a neat character-study type movie.

It was fun to watch though. Made me wish I was a math genius, so that's something.
