  • I really like casino-movies with a lot of money and glamour. Also Vegas is the perfect location to make this movie. I got never bored while watching “21”, and it was good entertainment. Altough I have to say, you cannot expect a movie as good as “Casino”, or “Ocean’s Eleven”,… but it was still okay! Especially Kevin Spacey was very convincing, as always!
