If only director Robert Luketic and screenwriters Peter Steinfeld and Allan Loeb had not opted for glitz. As filmmakers, they're playing for very low stakes.Time OutApril 11, 2008
The whizzo-conceit and slick visual bling do give it an undeniably diverting buzz, yet the movie's cautionary formula shows its hand way before the clunky final reel.I.E. WeeklyMarch 31, 2008
Like the Strip itself, it's all lights and music throbbing so hard you confuse yourself into thinking you're having fun.Chicago ReaderMarch 31, 2008
The students are so blandly written this never builds any suspense, though it probably has some value as an empowerment fantasy for debt-ridden collegians.Ebert & RoeperMarch 31, 2008
Although it's definitely a fictionalization of a true story, they get the essence of this insanely crazy double life that these kids led as they were breaking the bank in Vegas.Chicago Sun-TimesMarch 28, 2008
Inspired by the real-life story of the M.I.T. students who took Las Vegas casinos for millions, 21 has been reshaped to fit a simple movie template -- and it's nearly as much fun as watching an insurance professional compute actuarial tables.Lyles' Movie FilesOctober 24, 2012
Craps out leaving you wondering how it all went so wrong.Matt's Movie ReviewsJuly 07, 2010
Too bland, too bright and too long, 21 may talk a big game but it is mainly insipid entertainment.CinePassionAugust 27, 2009
Luketic's dunderheaded, would-be caper is a morality tale where the only moral at stake is the dullard-hero's thoughtless entitlementTimes-PicayuneJuly 24, 2009
It's a slick enough movie, with an intriguing enough concept. It would be a much more enjoyable movie, however, if the wheels didn't come off script-wise.TheMovieReport.comMarch 29, 2009
One can't help but think there was a smarter film to be made from this premise.Fayetteville Free WeeklyFebruary 02, 2009
When the movie 21 was announced with Kevin Spacey and Laurence Fishburne, it sounded like a winner. When everybody else involved in 21 was mentioned, it was doomed to be a loser.
