Storyline

In Las Vegas, Lucky and two of her girlfriends, Carol and Lisa, plan to steal half a million dollars from the sadistic manager of the Circus Circus Casino. A shadowy man is their contact and organizer. Each of the women could be a weak link in a scheme that has to be flawless: Lucky's boyfriend is a security officer at the casino, Lisa is a trapeze artist who's now plagued with vertigo, and Carol is in debt to a nasty thug - plus, as a Black woman, she's subject to additional harassment. Can the gals pull off the heist, or is the plan, with it's mysterious organizer, too complicated to succeed? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Great time and place, less good plot execution
4 August 2016 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

You would have to say that this Crown International Pictures feature sounds like it would have to be a winner. After all, a 70's era Las Vegas heist movie revolving around a foxy lady sounds like it cannot truly fail. In truth, Las Vegas Lady doesn't really live up to its potential and under-plays its hand a little too much. Its story focuses on three women who carry out a robbery of the Circus Circus casino in Vegas after taking instructions from a shadowy mystery figure. Their objective is to steal $500,000.

Heist movies are generally quite a bit of fun but this one is sadly a somewhat uninvolving crime caper where the heist itself is achieved with very little tension and what seems to be the minimum of effort. The trio of women include a trapeze artist and showgirl; the former is utilised to climb the vertigo inducing outer building in order to help execute the mission. While the villain of the piece is a casino boss who is a nasty bit of work with a penchant for roughing up women. So there are pretty decent characters in this one but they exist in a story which could certainly have been presented with a little more effort. Given the good set-up this could have been good movie if it had put more emphasis on generating tension and with better plot development. Still, I didn't mind it too much due to its 70's time capsule elements. 70's Las Vegas sure looks great in any case and it's really the time and place captured on screen that ensures this one is worth a look.
