Best roulette movies you should watch

There are hundreds of thousands of casino games out there, each offering something unique from the crowd. Roulette was always considered a fairly simple game, until recently. The rise of high-tech gambling has brought new features into play, such as random number generators, live tables, and even cameras tracking players’ eyes. Let’s see below the best roulette movies you should watch.

Money Talks (1929)

This is one of the most famous and entertaining silent films about casinos. It stars Buster Keaton who plays an old man named Harry Houdini who gets involved with a gang to get his hands on their money for his beloved daughter. His plan backfires when he ends up playing blackjack at a casino where he’s been invited by the mobsters. It was made before Hollywood became so corrupt that it had to start making movies like “Casino” which featured people getting killed in front of our very eyes. 

The Banker (1968)

The second movie on our list is the 1968 French thriller film ‘Le Banqueur’. French director Henri Verneuil tells us the story of Francois LeBanuier a banker working towards a promotion. Before long he finds himself mixed up with criminals trying to steal a huge sum of money. With its plot set in the world of finance and politics, it contains some great scenes including appearances from actors Alain Delon and Gaby Morlay. One of the greatest things about this crime film is that it shows the consequences of greed because the main character is caught and almost jailed after he makes bad investments. He loses everything and goes bankrupt leaving behind his wife and daughter.

The Cincinnati Kid (1973)

Clint Eastwood returns for another fun outing with his trademark cigar. Richard Boone takes the lead role as a card sharp who teams up with the local cops to take down a criminal group. After being forced to wear a wire, he manages to convince them to turn in the state’s evidence after they rob a bank. The rest of the cast includes Anne Baxter, Yaphet Kotto and Lee Van Cleef. The movie turns out to be quite humorous considering what happens next.

Cool Hand Luke (1967)

One of George Lucas’s first roles was that of an officer in the army. While filming his military service he got the chance to work on one of the coolest war films ever made. Starring alongside Paul Newman, a real-life member of the law enforcement agency, were some amazing cameos including Frank Sinatra, Sidney Poitier, Peter Fonda, Rod Steiger, Ernest Borgnine and many more. This scene comes shortly after Luke has just refused to go through a roadblock. Instead of giving him trouble, the soldiers decide to have some fun with him. Using taser guns and water cannons they make sure Luke becomes the cool hand!

Casino Royale (2006)

In the fifth place, we have Daniel Craig portraying James Bond in the 2006 film “Casino Royale”. Directed by Martin Campbell the production company announced that the budget would be around $80 million but ended up spending more than twice that amount. The film went on to become the highest-grossing British film of all time.

Unforgiven (1992)

Director Clint Eastwood returned to directing following the release of “The Eiger Sanction”, and told us the story of William Munny played by Gene Hackman. Two brothers are looking to avenge the death of someone close to them. However, things do not go according to their plans although they receive help from many others along the way. It stars Morgan Freeman, Willem Dafoe, Harvey Keitel, Mickey Rourke, Sam Elliot, Ned Beatty, Robert Duval, John Hurt and Jodie Foster.

Serpico (1973)

Al Pacino won an Oscar for Best Actor for his portrayal of New York cop Frank Serpico in the 1973 film “Serpico”. Pacino was nominated again after winning a Golden Globe award for best actor. The true story drama also starred Jack Nicholson. Filmed only three years after New York police officers murdered two innocent civilians at Kent State University, “Serpico” reveals how one man decides to fight back against the corruption of the NYPD.

Gunfighter (1950)

This 1950 western starring Jeff Chandler tells the story of a hired gun named Matt Reid. During the Civil War, he gets into a shootout with a bandit leader who had stolen his horse. To get the animal back, the outlaw leader’s men hold the young woman Reid loves hostage. A former soldier, Reid agrees to save her if she helps him find the missing horse.
