  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Pro-gambler Huck Cheever (Bana) struggles to raise the $10,000 entry fee for the high-rolling World Series Of Poker competition. This high-stakes event will pit his skills against the game

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.33:1 DVD shows good color saturation with a vividness that makes the colors pop from the screen. Blacks are deep and details in the shadows are delivered well. The image can look quite dimensional, but compression artifacts and pixel breakup often damage the picture, and details can occasionally look soft. Edge enhancement can also be noticed at times, but it is minor. (Danny Richelieu)
