Review: ‘7 Days to Vegas’ is a riveting and refreshing comedic adventure (Includes first-hand account)

Vincent Van Patten really captures the conscience of the protagonist, Duke, and he layers his emotions well over the course of the movie. Van Patten also served as a co-writer of the script along with Steve Alper. Emmy winner Eileen Davidson was fabulous as his wife, KC. Don Stark is a hoot as Angry Jim, while James Van Patten is a revelation as Carl.

Several major conflicts (internal and external) are presented with our main characters, and towards the end, they will all be resolved. Without giving too much away, 7 Days to Vegas should be experienced by all.

Most impressive was the fact that it was inspired by a true story about Hollywood big shots that bet on anything. This movie is “Sin City” like one hasn’t seen it before. The entire cast is remarkable. 7 Days to Vegas is a must for any fans of gambling films.

The Verdict

Overall, 7 Days to Vegas is a compelling film that will sustain the viewers’ attention from start to finish. Vincent Van Patten triumphs as Duke, and the script is exhilarating and well-written.

Eric Balfour did an excellent job with its direction as well. A true cinematic adventure in comedy. 7 Days to Vegas is worth more than just a passing glance, and it garners 4.5 out of 5 stars.

7 Days to Vegas is available on Amazon Prime.
