Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[An] energetic, if overly worshipful documentary."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"Douglas Tirola's pic seems a bit late for the poker craze, and at any rate will be preaching largely to the converted."
‑ John Anderson, Variety
"Engrossing documentary on the multi-billion-dollar poker industry gets a little too rhapsodic about the game as a metaphor for life and slips into advocacy for online poker, all while offering a revealing, wide-ranging look at a subculture."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"An achingly comprehensive poker-praising documentary that unfolds in rather scattershot form, yet still remains more or less entertaining enough to engage non-players."
‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
"Amusing and informative (and hyperbolic) as it is, "All In: The Poker Movie" is a documentary whose intended audience is unclear."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
""All In" lays down some interesting hands but sometimes can't raise the stakes, though "Rounders" star Matt Damon lends a bit of celeb flash."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"The film has a shambling charm that actively disputes an unspoken notion that a documentary must be well-structured in order to effectively land its points."
‑ Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
"So padded with cheerleading that it doesn't have time for a serious exploration of poker's place in the broader culture or the consequences of its rapid rise and global reach."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"Instead of sustaining a significant cultural story, at almost two hours, All In feels like an energetic but overlong highlight reel."
‑ Michelle Orange, Village Voice
"Celebrating the worldwide poker renaissance, it's intriguing in the way it delineates another way to chase the American Dream."
‑ Susan Granger, SSG Syndicate
