After seven years in solitary, Jake Green is released from prison. In the next two years, he amasses a lot of money by gambling. He's ready to seek his revenge on Dorothy (Mr. D) Macha, a violence-prone casino owner who sent Jake to prison. He humiliates Macha in front of Macha's lieutenants, leaves, and keels over. Doctors tell him he has a rare disease and will die in three days; Macha also puts a hit out on him. Loan sharks, Zack and Avi, demand Jake's cash and complete fealty in return for protection. Jake complies, and through narration and flashbacks, we watch him through at least three days of schemes, danger, and redemption. Who is his greatest enemy? Written by <>

Great performance!
4 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is my first review here, so please read other's reviews as well before deciding if this movie is for you.

An excellent performance by Ray Liotta, he's been great throughout the entire movie. I haven't seen him in films for a while, but sometimes he just manages to amaze me. A good actor knows how to shift between that solid, iron mask that defines his character, and the soft, narrow borderline that defines his personality. In this picture, Ray did it amazingly.

The film is well worth seeing by all those who like psychological and mob-style movies.

Probably not the best of its kind, but for the performance of the actors, for the script well written, for the action-packed adventure of our hero, I gave it a 9 out of 10. And I don't give 10 very often :)

All-in-all, a very good opinion.
