One can’t but agree with Timberlake’s observation. Giving more interesting titbits about his character, Justin Timberlake says, ‘I play Richie Furst, a guy who gets caught up in the world of online gambling! He loses all his money and finds out that there is an algorithm that cheats you.’
Rather than revealing the scam to the world on social media (you know how effective it is nowadays), Furst goes to Costa Rica to confront the website’s owner, the suave mastermind Ivan Block (Ben Affleck). Block sees potential in Furst and offers him to join his business, and make hell lot of money.
The only hitch: his entire business is illegal; notwithstanding, Furst is lured into making a quick buck. As the story progresses, he discovers dirtier secrets. Sadly though, it is too late to back out now. What harrows Furst further is an FBI agent, who nabs him and asks to provide evidence against Block. It’s all about life or death now.
