    Joe Neumaier New York Daily News

    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. show more

    John DeFore The Hollywood Reporter

    Informative and lively if low on cinematic value, the documentary will play well on the small screen. show more

    Chuck Bowen Slant Magazine

    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. show more

    Neil Genzlinger The New York Times

    The film, though, is 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. show more
