Under pressure from his girlfriend, Jo (Gretchen Mol), he promises to. Rounders is a gem of movie. The acting is absolutely first rate all around, particularly from the supporting cast. The movie has elements of a suspense thriller with high intelligence and yet always reminds you that this is about poker players. Johnny Chan, the twice champion of the World Series of Poker, makes an unexpected cameo. The Rounders is a American western film directed by Burt Kennedy and starring Glenn Ford and Henry Fonda. It is based on the novel of the same name by Max Evans.
The gamesmanship is always interesting, of course, but the impetus behind it grows old. The addition of Martin Landau as a Jewish lawyer who gives Damon a mitzvah as a kind of honor paid to continue a favor once given him is a touching part of the larger plot, making you wish there was more of this somehow, more of something genuine and a bit different.
It might not have helped that I recently saw "Croupier" with a young Clive Owen as a poker dealer, because that movie, whatever its simplicity and other limitations, actually made the poker scenes more real for me.
In fact, one problem with "Rounders" is you never get to actually sense the betting itself, and the cards--the playing and the strategies of playing--are glossed over with some tossing of chips and flipping of cards, all in a vague muddle.
I did enjoy watching overall, but it left me a little disappointed and restless. No need to waste time endlessly browsing—here's the entire lineup of new movies and TV shows streaming on Netflix this month.

Director: John Dahl. Writers: David Levien , Brian Koppelman. The story follows two friends who need to win at high-stakes poker to quickly pay off a large debt.
The term " rounder " refers to a person traveling around from city to city seeking high-stakes card games. Rounders opened to generally mixed reviews and was moderately successful at the box office.
With the poker boom in the early s, the film later became a cult hit. Shaken, he promises his girlfriend and fellow student Jo Gretchen Mol he has quit poker, and concentrates on law school.
His mentor Joey Knish John Turturro offers to stake him to rebuild his bankroll but Mike declines, and instead accepts a part-time job to make ends meet.
Several months pass and Mike stays true to his promise until his childhood friend Lester "Worm" Murphy Edward Norton is released from prison. While Mike is an honest player, Worm is a hustler and unapologetic cheat.
To help Worm pay off a debt, Mike sets him up with games across town, and reluctantly sits in on a game, interfering with his studies and his relationship with Jo.
As Mike returns to his poker lifestyle and friends, Jo ends their relationship. Mike proposes to Grama that Worm pay weekly installments; Grama considers the offer but also mocks Worm for his inability to pay him.
Mike decides to help Worm win the money by playing in several games in and around the city. The officers catch Worm base-dealing to help Mike; they are beaten up and relieved of their entire bankroll.
Worm finally confesses that Grama is working for KGB. With their lives in danger, Worm decides to flee, but Mike returns to the city, cutting ties with Worm.
Mike asks Grama for more time, to no avail. Mike asks Knish for the money but is refused out of principle. During the conversation with Knish, Mike reveals his motivation for taking the ill-fated risk at KGB's club and why he thinks he can compete and possibly win the World Series of Poker.
He even quotes Worm saying that Knish "sees all the angles but doesn't have the stones to play any" after Knish had already refused to help financially.
Mike changes his mind and decides to continue playing. Mike doubles the blinds at the risk of losing everything to KGB again, and possibly his life.
Irate at the missed chance to win it all, KGB begins to play on "tilt". In the final hand, Mike baits a boastful KGB into going all-in, and defeats him with a nut straight.
