21 is an adaptation of the book Bringing Down the House, which is the story of a group of MIT students who won a ton of money playing blackjack in Las Vegas. I'm not that interested in gambling or the glamor of Las Vegas. I think the interesting part of this film lies in human nature. The pattern of desperation, turning productive, turning to greed, turning to betrayal, turning to revenge, is an intriguing story, and this one's true. The performances are top notch, the camera work is creative and the ending wraps things up nicely. Well done.
