RottenTomatoes.com, the film review aggregate website, has the upcoming poker film Molly’s Game ranked a very impressive 90% on its Tomatometer. 

MOLLY'S GAME is based on the true story of Molly Bloom, an Olympic-class skier who ran the world's most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being arrested in the middle of the night by 17 FBI agents wielding automatic weapons. Her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business titans and finally, unbeknownst to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally was her criminal defense lawyer Charlie Jaffey, who learned that there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led us to believe.

Alison Willmore of buzzfeed.com writes:

When Molly's Game digs into the business of gambling and the whims and vulnerabilities of powerful men who spend mountains of money trying to one-up each other, it is witty, gossipy, and very entertaining.

David Ehrlich of IndiWire.com writes:

... a typically staccato and silver-tongued drama that boasts a zillion killer lines, at least two of the year's most exciting performances, and a rare understanding of the difference between power and pride.

Vikram Murthi of RogerEbert.com writes:

The frequent pleasures of Molly's Game more than make up for the occasional lapse into Sorkin indulgence.

Not everyone is loving what is widely expected to be the best poker film since Rounders.

Dennis Schwartz, Ozus’ World Movie Reviews, writes:

A slickly told and mildly entertaining fluff story with more tiresome voiceovers than any other film I ever saw.
