But the acting?
14 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw the movie and although it's obvious that it is a super low budget project I can't say enough about actor playing the part of Vegas. IMDb says his name is John Sorrenti. This guy has to be a real wiseguy hired to do the flick. His comments and expressions come off so natural. Keep an eye out for this guy, he's going places. I've seen Bokeem Woodbine in better of course, for instance, there's "Dead Presidents". I actually felt bad for him in that when Chris Tuckers character punched him in the face as their sitting there counting their money. He needs that breakout role that a lot of guys are waiting for. Hopefully it will not only come to him, but John Sorrenti also. I think I may have seen him in an episode of the Sopranos.
