Don't let a script by Joel and Ethan Coen con you into watching this tired crime caper
What is it going to take to convince Joel and Ethan Coen to stop messing around with remakes of classic British crime capers? While they didn't actually direct Gambit (unlike 2004's The Ladykillers), they're still responsible for the laugh-free script that forms the backbone to this Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz 'comedy'. Clearly realising that the film was a dud, the distributor hasn't bothered with any extras beyond a promo featurette and trailer. Still, at least the detail-rich AVC 2.40:1 1080p visuals show that no corners were cut when it came to presenting the film in HD.
