21: The Movie

By: Mercie Hallow

Las Vegas is Nevadas capital city and a famous place for gamblers. It is considered to be the gambling capital of the world where gamblers, enthusiasts, spectators and hopefuls all gather for a night of fast cash and good luck. Las Vegas is a tourist destination for people who want to be amazed with its beauty and glitter. Las Vegas houses numerous hotels, casinos and casino resorts for the enjoyment of many.
21 is a movie released in 2008 that features the life and glamour at Vegas. The movie started with a young and poor college student named Campbell played by Jim Sturgess who applies for the renowned Robinson Scholarship in Harvard Medicine School which will pay for his 300,000 USD tuition fee. The story started with Campbell (Sturgess) in an interview with the Robinson Scholarship head asking him to dazzle the latter and prove as to why he is viable to get the much coveted scholarship. Campbell then relates his life as a card counter in a Las Vegas casino hotel.
He was discovered by his Math major professor played by Spacey when he gave the student a problem based on the Monty Hall problem of probability in which Campbell, successfully solved. Spacey then invited him to join his exclusive black jack team of card counters which he sends out to Vegas on weekends. Campbell proved to be a bright addition to the team as he began earning a lot of money for Spacey.
The movie developed a twist when one night he lost a huge amount of money. Spacey then demanded him to pay all of what he lost and kicked him out of the team. He later found out that all his savings were stolen by his professor. He revenged by seeking his teammates efforts as he double-crossed Spacey in a shadowy deal. Well, he got the scholarship apparently.
The movie was downright witty as it bore what was indeed, truly Las Vegas.
