Goofs

Around 5 minutes, 40 seconds (5:40), Joshua and Diaz ate playing Texas Hold'em, a popular type of poker game. Diaz says, "Raise" and puts some chips in the pot. He makes 2 errors by doing this. Anyone familiar with any variety of poker games knows someone has to make a bet first before some can "raise it". Diaz simply said "Raise" before any bet. Also, you always state the amount you are betting; however, Diaz didn't do this either. Both of these are obvious mistakes. See more »

This is absolutely based on a book I've read. The Sensitives by Herbert Burkholz
9 June 2019 | by srossellSee all my reviews

When I read the synopsis while scrolling through Amazon Prime Video, I said "This is just like that book that I keep in my nightstand". I've had this book for years and pull it out occasionally for a re-read.

I'm really surprised and disappointed that nothing anywhere says it's based on a book. Whole lines are taken directly from the book.

The movie wasn't a bad adaptation - as soon as it started I could remember the whole plot of the book. The special effects were pretty hokey, though.
