This was a fantastic movie, great acting, good setting, and a good story. Burt Lancaster plays an aging gangster who teams up with a troubled young casino worker(Susan Sarandon, in breakthrough role), when their lives get out of hand. It's nice to see Burt Lancaster in films again, he hadnt been in anything much since the 50's. Overall this is a great film, with meaning. ***1/2 out of ****.
