"Deadly Bet" is another fun action flick from PM.
12 May 2010 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

"Deadly Bet" is another fun action flick from PM.

The Plot: Angelo (Wincott) had it all: money, A woman he loves, and just plain luck. Until his last bet turned deadly. His arch nemesis Rico (Steven Vincent Leigh) just took his girl after he drunkenly lost against him. Now Angelo has to fight his way back to the top.

The action choreography is fantastic. You can see all the moves with no flashy editing. Jeff Wincott plays a good hero. You can root for him. Leigh is the old-fashioned villain, but he does it well. Gary Daniels also makes one of his first appearances as a fighter.

If you liked "Fist Of Honor" or any PM movie, don't forget to check this one out.
