CASINO JACK (2010 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

Casino Jack—well-told inside story about political lobbying—is a ‘not-to-be-missed' film. The story is well-told and informatively educating. Some nudity, violence, and language contribute to the film’s R-rating; but, it could easily have earned a PG-13 rating.

Storyline

Political lobbyist Jack Abramoff (Kevin Spacey) overextends himself while lobbying for interests within the capital.
