Most people like to think they have some degree of control over their lives. The truth is we're subject to the influence of others. Those who appreciate this can make a lot of money from those who don't. But any small-time grifter who ever dealt off the bottom of a deck can tell you that. What I can tell you about is the price one pays for peddling confidence. How every mark you fleece takes away a piece of your soul, and what happens when you try to pick up the pieces.

I rented this film because of the legendary cast. Michael biehn, nic cage, Angus scrimm-the tall man himself, Charlie sheen, Talia shire, and peter Fonda. But even an eccentric and solid cast couldn't save dead fall. The acting is some of the weakest I've seen from these actors. Nic cage goes gonzo over the top, so much so that he is the only redeemable thing in the movie. Michael biehn is solid but he seems very bored. It features lobster hands, twin brothers, a really cheese narration, one of the lamest and unerotic sex scenes ever filmed, death by deep fryer, and Charlie sheen looking sexual. Overall, interesting cast cant redeem a clichéd and slow thriller without any thrills.
