Movie Reviews

Tight Thriller Brought to Life by McCann
Monique Rothman | 04/19/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Poker Club is one of those smaller genre films that could easily get lost in the shuffle were it not for Tim McCann's tight, smart and stylish direction. This is not the first time we've seen this kind of film, where one mistake leads to a series of disasterous choices by the hero. McCann's first foray into genre filmmaking is informed by his more individual indie style.He captures his audience and moves the film at breakneck speed building to an unusal and unexpected ending.Entertaining and well worth seeing for the fine acting and directing."
Conflicted characters in a great twist and turn thriller!
Matt | Denver, NC | 05/09/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Effortless... Based on reading one preview article and Judy Reyes' involvement, I saw The Poker Club. I wasn't let down, for once. This story is of an accidental murder after an innocuous poker game (Hosted by Johnathon Schaech) among friends. Soon enough, it becomes clear that almost everyone who appears to be an innocent bystander to the homicide in the beginning, actually has MUCH deeper problems. I love how this story is told... every time a guilty party is approached by a cop (In most cases, Reyes, the lead detective), your stomach sinks. You really don't want anyone to be caught, even though you know what happened was horrible. In the end, everything is wrapped up nicely, and though no moment in the movie is happy, I'm glad I saw it. It portrays the guilt of all those involved better than most movies."
Nice plot-twist

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had to watch this movie a few times, just to catch all the little clues that lead to the plot twist at the end. This movie has a good plot, but the real focus of the movie is on the acting. The behaviour, the eye-contact, the facial expressions. And it's all good."
