Molly’s Game Review

By Omar Balde

There’s nothing better than a game thriller; everyone likes a good bet, In Molly’s Game we see the other side of the story, what happens when you lose the game.

That’s where the story began, Molly’s loss. After that, she doesn’t know what she wants to do with her life. She’s lost, so she takes a year away to figure out what she wants to do. And that’s where things go wrong.

When this happens, the audience is always in between present moments and flashbacks, which is engaging. Even when they appear a lot, it doesn’t get annoying.

Jessica Chastain makes a remarkable performance as Molly and shows us how men get threatened when a woman is in power.

Supporting her is Charlie Jaffey (Idris Elba), who tries to understand her story and help her get out of the mess that she is in.

The film builds up a great story, but end up flat. If there was a different ending, the story would be a five-star film, but the end ruins all of what the story was building throughout the plot.

It’s still a lovely film to watch on a Saturday night and gives you an intriguing story with amazing acting, but nothing more than that.
