According to Rotten Tomatoes, this film is rotten to the core (pun intended)
True, it isn't going to win any awards but as a bit of fun and escapism it ticks all the boxes, its one of the few films in the last 2 months that actually filled the cinema.
Verdict: 3.5 Stars Go see it, it delivers exactly what you would expect. Fun from beginning to end.
It does what it says on the tin, a testerone packed 1hr and abit. Where it fails is it tries to justify the events in the film with a limp and melow dramatic reference to Achilles shield. If your willing to overlook that, which you probably are if you are even remotely intrested in the film. Go see it you wont end up being bored at all.
Go See, its not the best film you'll ever see but it is enjoyable non the less.
Overall I really enjoyed 21, I can't comment on the book as I haven't started it but I have bought it. I thought all the characters where believable, and it was an entertaining film, and has found its way on to my favorite films list.
Ok, so it does get abit mellow dramatic towards the end, but i think there are a good few films that suffer more for it, 21 is simple and to the point and most importantly, it doesn't have the over top air of some of the 'based on a true story' genre of recent months.
3.5 Stars - Go See, You wont regret it.
