The Reviews for Shade (2003) 720p


Reviewed byrealgrovesVote: /10

Don't expect to see to many believable, realistic or reliable pokermoves.... but all and all this was an extremely entertaining movie. Ifyoulive in the Los Angeles area it is fun to pick out some local hot spotsandcatch that 90% of the movie was filmed within a few blocks of Sunset andIvar. Gabrielle Brynne is amazing as always... and Sly Stone delivers thegoods for the first time in a long time. I didn't care for the fact thatthere weren't more realistic poker terms and logistics used throughout theflick. Definately in a game that size you would see chem-decks, a spotterchecking for cheats, a cut card, table stakes opposed to this "money in myback pocket routine", and atleast one Asian or Armenian guy from the LAarealooking for a big game. A great time for two hours... but not going toteach beginners anything about a real high-stakes game.

A shade better than expected.Reviewed bygridoonVote: 7/10

As movies about card games and/or con artists go, "Shade" is no "House Of Games" or "Nine Queens", but it's better than you might expect for a film that was barely released theatrically. The first two twists caught me completely off-guard (the final twist though....I saw it coming a few seconds before it happened). The poker scenes are highly entertaining (where can I get one of those "juiced" decks?). There are many good performances (Townsend, Foxx, Byrne), and nice turns by veterans (Hal Holbrook, Bo Hopkins). The weak links are Stallone and Melanie Griffith, who look awful in this film. Stallone's performance isn't bad, but they could easily have replaced him with an actor more appropriate for this role; Griffith IS bad, and it's hard to know what she's even doing in the picture. An actor who stands out (in a good way) is Roger G. Smith as Marlo, the mob enforcer with the extremely calm voice. (**1/2)

Wat Is Shade?Reviewed bypacieterra-1Vote: 8/10

This is an exceptionally stylish movie, loaded with well-known talent. Some, like Sly Stallone, Hal Holbrook, Stuart Townsend, Gabriel Byrne, and Thandie Newton (outstanding!), keep all the grifters in high-stakes poker games entertaining and watchable. Jamie Fox has a smaller role, but does his best with what he's given. The weak link is Melanie Griffith. Although she has done better cinema, and won raves on Broadway for "Chicago," she has little to work with here and is difficult to watch. The various plot twists and interrelationships among the various stars and supporting characters never reveal the final, surprise ending. The range of card tricks and poker maneuvers would never play in Vegas, but they are clever and well-executed. A bonus feature on the DVD illustrates and explains how the actors learned the dynamics of slight-of-hand at the Magic Castle for magicians in Los Angeles.
