Card Cheating/Heist Movie

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Scodischarge, Jul 14, 2019.

  1. Hi guys,
    After having read a few similar threads lately I was wondering about whether you could recommend me some good movies about card cheating or casino heists. My personal criteria: It should be a fairly good movie of course (acting-wise; the plot should ideally be a little less twisted and complicated (and make more sense) than Now You See Me); of course it would be fantastic if some good and real sleight-of-hand was shown; it's quite important to me that there are as little as possible (ideally zero) nude or semi-nude scenes and a minimum of violence would be nice as well. Call me old-fashioned.

    Looking forward to your suggestions!

    PS: Just to clarify: By "a movie about card cheating" I mean a movie in which a card cheater or card cheating plays more than a minor role. It doesn't have to be the core of the story but should appear for more than a few second.
  2. Rounders with Matt Damon and Ed Norton is an amazing movie about poker player, card cheating is featured in it as quite a large plot point

  3. I read somewhere that Steve Forte was the technical consultant for all the card scenes..

  4. Well, movies like Shade, Sting and Sleight are about sleight of hand and cheating. In a way, prestige could be also the kind of movie you're looking for.

  5. "A Big Hand For The Little Lady" starring Joanne Woodward, Henry Fonda. "The Cincinnati Kid" starring Steve McQueen, Edward G. Robinson. Both meet your criteria, except for sleight of hand. A big hand for the little lady is highly underrated.
  6. It's fantastic how much help you gave me in so little time. Thank you all very much!
