Poker Club, The (2008)
Movie Review by The Blind Cyclops
04.26.12

Poker Club, The (2008) For those of you that love the genre of the "we screwed up and killed a guy, so let's cover it up" genre may find The Poker Club somewhat entertaining. The story starts off with Aaron and four of his buddies getting together to play in their weekly Texas Hold'em poker game in the garage when it looks like someone has broken into the garage.

The four gang up on the supposed robber and Bill the hothead accidentally kills the robber. Instead of calling the cops, the four decide to dump the body into the river and go on like nothing ever happened.

As one can expect, things start going wrong when first Aaron's "mistress / secretary" turns up dead just a few hundred feet from his door. From this point, each member of the poker club is killed one by one and the police are now beginning to suspect Aaron as having something to do with the deaths. Aaron winds up sending his wife away in order to try to both protect her and get things sorted

In an odd and nearly unexplained twist, the female detective figures out that something is amiss with Aaron's wife and goes to interview her about what she knew about the case. During the interview, it is discovered that Bill had an affair with Aaron's wife and wants her to himself.

Just as this revelation is made, Bill is making his final move against Aaron. Instead of just killing him quickly, Bill seems to play with Aaron a bit too long and even allows him to get to a gun. Unfortunately, Aaron cannot get a shot off and as it appears that he will be killed, Bill is shot dead by the detective.

Overall, "The Poker Club" is a highly predictable movie that tries to put yet another spin on a very tired concept. The writers of the script for this movie may have been better served to review some Texas Holdem poker rules, especially the part about mixing up your play. Hopefully future directors looking to do this type of movie will look at "The Poker Club" as what not to do in this genre.
