Scams And Cons
Editors Note
Note Self-professed "super-lobbyist" and double-dealing high roller Jack Abramoff (Academy Award-winner Kevin Spacey) watches in vain as his highly lucrative empire starts to crumble thanks to one fateful mistake in this high-energy comedy inspired by real events from director George Hickenlooper (THE MAN FROM ELYSIAN FIELDS, FACTORY GIRL). When Jack and resourceful businessman Michael Scanlon (Barry Pepper) team up to exert their influence over some the biggest players in Washington, D.C., their bid to strike it rich pays off, big time. But somewhere between the high-profile deals, high-roller hotel suites, and million-dollar yachts, the profit-loving pair makes the mistake of recruiting a motor-mouthed mob flunky (Jon Lovitz) to earn some extra income under the table. At first the cash is rolling in, but when word gets out that Jack and Michael have ties to the Mob, the resulting scandal turns their life of luxury into a living hell.

ReviewSource ReelViews
Review This is Hickenlooper's final feature (he died about two months before its theatrical release) and one of his best. Whether the viewer knows Abramoff's story or not, its depiction is strong enough to hold one's interest. Casino Jack also represents another tile in the ever-growing cinematic mosaic depicting how rotten the foundations of U.S. government have become. It also makes a strong companion piece to Gibney's documentary, which offers a documentary portrait of the same events. Above all, however, Kevin Spacey is the reason to see Casino Jack. This movie will stand alongside The Usual Suspects and American Beauty as examples of what the actor is capable of accomplishing when he is properly motivated.
