      This is one such movie that really gives an adrenaline rush to the spectators. Not only it proves to be a full-fledged entertainer but also teaches us that greed always leads to the downfall. The movie is about gambling and how one can get addicted to gambling and the passion to earn money. And how this greed can snatch away everything that has been earned!

      The movie features a boy Jim who recently turns 21 and is studying at MIT.

      He is a bright student who is eager to learn more and is very quick in his calculations. He was working with his two best friends on a science project. He does a part-time job of being a salesman and earns very little to fulfil his ambitions.

      His greatest


      ambition is to get admission in Harvard Medical College. One day his mathematical skills come in to the view of his teacher Mickey how then calls him to meet him. There Jim finds about a group of five of his fellow students that work under Mickey and go to gamble at Las Vegas.

      Mickey urges him to join the group and since Jim had to arrange for money to go to Harvard, he agrees to join the league only until he makes enough to achieve his goal. They go to Las Vegas and Jim earns much through his awesome skills and intelligence. However Jim gets too obsessed in making money that he even forgets his best friends.

      Things take a ugly turn when Jim gets into the greed for earning ...


      • more and more and thereafter lands in to trouble. How he gets out of the trouble and does he make it to Harvard is a thing to check out for in the movie. 21 was overall a nice movie but not certainly an above par one.

        It is a good entertainer that will keep you entertained for the full time it is being played. The best thing about the movie is that it has a fast pace. From the very beginning wherein the scene of a Las Vegas Casino is shown with a boy winning great, the viewer is hooked to the movie.

        The movie is mostly about playing blackjack and the methods to win the game have been shown in the movie. However that simply went above mu head and

        it was too quick for me to grasp but nevertheless I had no problem in following the rest of the movie despite not getting how to play that game. Jim’s constant trip to Las Vegas and the shopping for big brand names was very interesting part.

        Especially the one in which Vegas is shot from the aeroplane at night. The movie is mostly about gambling, deception, obsession for money. There are many twists and turns in the movie which certainly are thrilling and fun to watch.

        Though it is a nice movie but it sounds too fictional for a bunch of teenagers to go with a teacher in Las Vegas and win big there. That might be the drawback of the movie. Keeping aside that point the movie is a thrilling, fast-paced entertainer.

    I love movies that give you that adrenaline rush. This one “21″ sounds really great, fun and entertaining. I’d be happy to see the movie even though I may check out the trailer first. I enjoy the way review flowed and how you revealed the brief story outline plot, and characters.
