The Journey is the Destination
 

I think you'd be hard pressed to find a 2015 straight drama film that is more fun to watch than Mississippi Grind. I was really surprised at just how intelligent this film was while also being extremely entertaining. The premise and what I had seen from the marketing seemed to push the film in more of a 'Runner Runner' direction with it's tone and themes, but Mississippi Grind is much more than that. Not only is it great to watch Ryan Reynolds and Ben Mendelsohn act alongside each other, but there's a surprising amount of depth to the story and it's characters that puts it up there as one of the best films of the year. ..

Great portrayal of a gambling addict
 

This is a film about two poker players who strike up a friendship and go on a road trip to win their fortune. The problem is that one of them doesn't know when to quit. This is one the best films I've seen about gambling and poker in a long time. The two lead actors , Ryan Reynolds and Ben Mendelsohn are brilliant and they work really well together. Mendelsohn in particular is really convincing as man with a severe gambling problem. This doesn't glamorise gambling at all and it highlights all the pitfalls of not being able to stop gambling. Essentially this is a road movie that despite having many bumps is actually a really good journey to be on for the viewer.

Great road movie that develops great characters with a great bond
 

Once again the IMDb user rating fails to reflect the true quality of a movie and I have to side with the critics. So be it because I was surprised how much I liked Mississippi grind. The acting from the two leads was exceptional, particularly Ben Mendelsohn. The writing is very natural and realistic as well. As usual, I would normally side with users, but every once in a while (such as with the guest) the critics know what they're doing and quite frankly the users couldn't be any more wrong, with a rating of 6.4/10 I would call this film criminally underrated, just so you know I don't say that often. ..

Well acted but light on Entertainment
 

Mississippi Grind is an independent drama film starring Ben Mendelsohn an Ryan Reynolds. Mendelsohn plays Gerry, a joylessly committed gambler whose addiction to the tables in backwoods Iowa casinos has cost him his marriage, the chance to see his daughter grow up and his integrity. Further along into the film, we see a developing relationship between both leads. Curtis (Reynolds) is an enigmatic fellow poker player who shares his love of Woodford bourbon. The film is more of a character study slower paced drama which has a very anti-mainstream feel about it. Which is case in point where the film has been critically acclaimed by top critics but criticized for being boring by casual fans. Overall, Mississippi Grind is well acted, an interesting story for those interested in the world of gambling and addiction. Yet the film did leave questions open, and the ending could have been more developed.

A great team up of Reynolds and Mendelsohn makes the film
 

With the picturesque road trip surrounds of the American South at its disposal and the unique pairing of Australian ex-pat Ben Mendelsohn and Deadpool himself Ryan Reynolds, Mississippi Grind comes off as a sadly low key disappointment that could've so easily become so much more. ..

Reynolds is good, Mendelsohn is fantastic. Gritty. Shoe-In for top 10 of 2015. Very mild spoilers

Well made and accurate movie about a gambling addict
 

This is right up my alley. I enjoy gambling films, and like both actors. ..

A convincing portrayal of a compulsive gambler
 

There's nothing worse than a movie that is out of touch with reality and the issues that it is supposed to be portraying, so I approached 'Mississippi Grind' with caution and was half-expecting an inaccurate and unrealistic depiction of a gambling addict. I was pleasantly surprised - the movie was well written and acted, with two great performances from Ben Mendelsohn and Ryan Reynolds as Gerry and Curtis. The movie places more emphasis on content and dialogue than anything else and is somewhat pedestrian, but still manages to be engaging. I thought this was a solid and commendable attempt at portraying a gambling addiction. Certainly not a perfect movie but a well-made and accurate one, which is what I had hoped for.

a bit of a grind
 

This film tells the story of a compulsive gambler who is in fell debt. He hopes to make the money back on a road trip to various casinos, travelling with a young charismatic card player. "Mississippi Grind" may be very realistic in the portrayal of a compulsive gambler. Ben Mendelsohn gives a very convincing and intense portrayal of the gambler. His expressions of exhilaration and desperation are very captivating, that I feel his emotions too. The scene where he loses the horse race towards the end is very memorable. The plot is a rather sad story of how compulsive gamblers lose everything, from money to family and even their integrity. It is a captivating story.

Strong Performances From Mendelsohn & Reynoilds Carry This Gambling Flick
 

Gerry (Ben Mendelsohn) and Curtis (Ryan Reynolds) are professional card players and degenerate gambling addicts. They begin a friendship over a card table and in a bar. Curtis is looking to visit Peru. Gerry has left behind his family. The two gamblers go on a meandering journey of addiction. Ben Mendelsohn and Ryan Reynolds are great actors. Mendelsohn is especially great in this one. The plot does need a device to drive it. Without it, this is just a series of scenes strung together, and there are some interesting scenes. I like Analeigh Tipton doing her magic tricks. I like Gerry stealing money from his ex-wife. The gambling doesn't hold much interest without a ticking money counter. Even with a win, these two will eventually lose again. That is the basic flaw. Even the ending is not the final ending. There is no real climax.
