About the Movie

Inspired by the true story of MIT students who mastered the art of card counting and took Vegas casinos for millions in winnings. Looking for a way to pay for tuition, Ben Campbell (Jim Sturgess) finds himself quietly recruited by MIT's most gifted students in a daring plot to break Vegas. With the help of a brilliant statistics professor (Kevin Spacey) and armed with fake IDs, intelligence and a complicated system of counting cards, Ben and his friends succeed in breaking the impenetrable casinos. Now, his challenge is keeping the numbers straight and staying one step ahead of the casinos before it all spirals out of control.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Repetitive, implausible and overlong. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Oct 18, 2008

Fresh: Real-life rags-to-riches Vegas scheme makes for glossy if lightweight fun. – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: A movie with an irresistible premise that ultimately collapses around the whole issue of motivation. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Inspired by the real-life story of the M.I.T. students who took Las Vegas casinos for millions, 21 has been reshaped to fit a simple movie template -- and it's nearly as much fun as watching an insurance professional compute actuarial tables. – Jim Emerson, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

I would love to be able to rent a movie before I purchase it. Is there a reason that "21" went straight to buy only?
