Molly's Game. Generally favorable reviews based on 46 Critic Reviews. Generally favorable reviews based on Ratings. Play Sound. May 30, Extraordinarily compelling, Molly's Game is a fascinating biopic about an Olympic-class skater turned gaming entrepreneur.
The film follows the life of Molly Bloom who fell out of competitive skiing after a debilitating injury and moved to LA where she got involved with underground poker and eventually struck out on her own and started running her own games until they were raided by the FBI.
Jessica Chastain gives an excellent performance and is backed by a strong supporting cast, including Idris Elba and Kevin Costner.
Additionally, the flashback narrative structure helps to keep the film moving and builds intrigue. Molly's Game is an incredibly captivating drama with an interesting story to tell and a positive message about standing up for ones principles.
Dann M Super Reviewer. Sep 13, Ed K Super Reviewer. Aug 19, The first five minutes, giving you Molly's sports background, are utterly fantastic.
They set a pace the movie somehow keeps up, although the rest of the story contains mostly people talking. But the editing is so breathless and the writing so on point that it sometimes feel like an action film, going back and forth.
The actors are top notch, especially Chastain and Elba, the camera work has a few trick up its sleeves too.
For a topic that does not sound particularly exciting on paper, the result is an incredibly engaging and ultimately even moving film.
Jens S Super Reviewer. Apr 11, Features Sorkin at his very best enjoyable quip filled dialogue that propels the plot forward and his absolute worst the main character comes to understand herself because a man explains her to her.
Chastain is the glue that kinda makes it all work even if it is problematic at times. Alec B Super Reviewer.

Molly is a great character for Sorkin's writing style, which his critics are quick to attack as overly perfect dialogue and everyone being the smartest person in the room.
Thankfully, Molly always is the smartest person in the room, and we do see her stumbles as well. The film didn't take the path I expected - rather than show the various segments of her life, we're given her skiing history as a backdrop and spend the entire movie seeing her climb the world of massive poker games.
This works, though it may also be the thing holding the movie back from being an all-time favorite from me - a lot of the time is spent on the logistics and drama of the poker games and Molly maneuvering around the men playing, which leaves less time than I'd like to delve into her psychology.
Sorkin primarily gets around this by using voiceovers, which I think work very well here, though they are more exposition than inner monologue.
We understand that Molly is exceptionally gifted from the opening of the film - both extremely intelligent and a world class athlete if anything, Sorkin was too heavy handed in showing her intelligence by listing her GPA and LSAT score, I wouldn't have minded a bit more showing than telling there.
Her father's influence is an essential psychological component to understanding Molly, but we get a more or less run of the mill overworking father and rebellious daughter depiction.
A scene late in the movie that is clearly meant to be the emotional climax of the film between them does not come off very cleanly, with her father giving her "therapy" and explaining that their animosity came from her seeing and subconsciously knowing he was cheating on her mom.
The story is well told and Chastain is just fantastic the entire film, so I still was deeply invested in her journey, but had we understood her psychology better and seen her ambition for success more than in a couple forced moments between childhood skiing flashbacks and running the poker games, it would have been everything I could want.
Her struggles with depression and addiction are very important and great when mentioned, but they're only really present when Sorkin explicitly draws attention to them rather than integrated naturally throughout the script, though Chastain does give hints here and there in her interactions.
Idris Elba is great as her lawyer, with a great monologue late in the film and consistently good chemistry in dialogue with Chastain.
We do see some interesting legal themes in the unjust way the government or FBI take advantage of the pressure the legal system puts on people.
Most of the thematic meat, however, comes from the social cues going on in the poker games. The games are a transparent look at the most powerful people in the world, and what do they look like?
