Product description

Slick casino scam tale based on Ben Mezrich's book 'Bringing Down the House: The Inside Story of Six M.I.T. Students Who Took Vegas for Millions'. Brilliant M.I.T. student Ben Campbell (Jim Sturgess) has got money worries, if he doesn't come up with $300,000 he's going to be kicked out. Luckily for Ben, help is at hand in the shape of maths professor Micky Rosa (Kevin Spacey), who has formed a team of students capable of taking on the casinos of Las Vegas and beating them at blackjack, using a technique known as card counting. But as the team start to win, and win big, the glitzy lifestyle soon starts to ensnare Ben, and he begins to believe he's untouchable. With the team attracting the attention of casino security chief Cole Williams (Laurence Fishburne), it's not long before the stakes are raised to dangerous levels.
