A Natural Seven (Out of Ten)

Ben Mendelsohn steals this buddy movie about a pair of sad sack 'grinders' (a term for people who gamble for a living) who befriend each other after meeting across a poker table. Reynolds has made a solid career playing fast talking cocky charmers but placed in a supporting role amidst this cast he brings a depth and complexity to his character that is original and thoughtful. This is about people who are doing the best they can trying to manage in a world that is unfair, uneventful and especially unforgiving to people who choose to live in a world constantly surrounded with bad choices. They are unexceptional well-intentioned people who long ago abandoned any fatal optimism for the future but still need to make their way within the limited confines of what they know and where they find themselves. It is a grim, lonely and stark existence which makes for an engrossing film.

Great character acting by Ryan Reynolds

As much as I wouldn't expect to be re-watching for the third time in a row a movie starring one of Hollywood's "men of the hour", it is Reynolds' truly stellar performance that kept me glued to the screen. What I particularly appreciate about the movie is how well crafted the two leading characters are and the particular depth that Reynolds adds to the drifting casino-frequenting thrill-seeker he plays (who by his own admission is better at darts than gambling and is a casino regular simply because he "likes people"). Curtis (Reynolds' character) is a sort of a perennial wanderer, set on a journey of discovery, oblivious however as to what exactly it is he is searching for. A typical "lost soul" in the Gen X sense, Curtis loathes any sort of predictability and never stays in one place for too long and has a debilitating fear of committing to places and people - love interests, too. Reynolds manages to turn Curtis into a likable character one could relate to so much so that when he professes his love to his on again-off again casino hostess girlfriend, it almost looks like he is finally ready to settle down and anchor "in love". But, love is the ultimate gamble for him, something he is yet unprepared for, with the next roll of the dice at the next casino holding more appeal. The thrill of the "open road" and the endless possibilities it brings with it have been nicely captured in this movie, depicting the very essence of the American dream which lies in the understanding that, in Curtis's own words, "the journey is the destination".

Good Actors, Bland Movie..

Down on his luck and facing financial hardship, Gerry teams up with younger charismatic poker player, Curtis, in an attempt to change his luck. The two set off on a road trip through the South with visions of winning back what's been lost. Mississippi Grind is a very different film for both Ben Mendelsohn and Ryan Reynolds and although they do try their best and they do have a nice chemistry together as the two leads the film is long and mostly a bland road trip about this 2 people that want to win some money threw poker and they basically test their luck each time they play. The acting is fine but the script and mostly the direction that the movie takes is what basically kills it and honestly it's not a recommend although if you're sick of the big Hollywood Blockbusters? You might enjoy it although both actors have starred in much better films in general. (5/10)
