Consensus: Kevin Spacey turns in one of his stronger performances, but Casino Jack is a disappointingly uneven fictionalized account of a fascinating true story.

Kate Taylor
Globe and Mail

The film has a complicated political story to tell, and its erratically suspenseful narrative often detracts from its central interest - what makes Abramoff tick.

Spacey has fun doing Abramoff doing Al Pacino, President Ronald Reagan and Sylvester Stallone. But the typically strong Spacey isn't the only actor doing commanding work here.

Casino Jack is a funny and enjoyable film with great performances.

Casino Jack is really two movies: a convoluted tale about the exploits of disgraced Washington super-lobbyist Jack Abramoff, coupled with a zealous-if-misguided performance from Kevin Spacey in the title role.

It's hard to work up a whole lot of love or sympathy for convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

The film tries to encompass all of Abramoff's encyclopedic chicanery and chokes on the sheer volume.

Hickenlooper and co-conspirator Kevin Spacey are more successful at entertaining than informing or enraging us, but such a tart soufflé may be the best way for a fed-up public to digest this distasteful story.

Will Leitch

Hickenlooper was a talented director with a clear, passionate love of movies. It's a shame his last one had to be this one.
