Storyline

The film centres around gangland boss Vic Morono who presides over a mixed pack of cards with the trumps being the 'The Four Deuces'-Chip Morono, Mickey Navarro, Ben Arlen and Smokey Ross. There's an abundance of humor,sadness and blood in this fast moving film although not necessarily in that order! it all comes to a head in the final shoot out with just one left standing but who is it to be, and whats he been left with... has he been dealt the worst hand of all?

Terrible gangster film
2 April 2013 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

In the 1970s, I am pretty sure that regular movie producers didn't think seriously about casting Jack Palance in a movie with comic elements. But that didn't stop Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus doing so in this early effort by them. Actually, the movie is a mix between seriousness and comedy, and as you can probably imagine, the end results are a real mess. Seeing people get graphically killed along with other acts of violence does not mix well with the movie's stabs at goofy humor. But there are further problems with this exercise. The low budget was apparently almost all spent on renting antique cars and props, because the set design is often something you'd see in a high school play. The biggest problem with the movie, however, is how incredibly boring it is. It won't take long for you to start nodding off and having no interest in these uninteresting characters.
