The seemingly random killings of an assassin puzzle her former lover, a wealthy Greek crime boss whose organization is jeopardized by his love for her, and the detective following her rising body count.
As a young girl, Alicia "Ace" Anderson (Swain) had been taught the fine art and the mathematical probabilities of Texas Hold-em poker by the father she adored. But that world came to an end when her father was taken from her in a fatal auto accident. Years later, as she enters medical school, she will need to call upon the skills her father taught her as she struggles with the rigorous medical training, mounting financial pressures and the seamier side of medicine. Her friends and fellow students combine their unique talents and skills to produce a team who may well be the ultimate poker machine. But as the stakes in both the casinos and the operating room continue to rise, Ace comes to understand what her father taught her: in order to really live, you need to go all in. Written by
When two or more players go "all-in" the inference of this movie is that the person that wins the hand at the showdown automatically eliminates all others who were "all in". There was no consideration given to chip counts in this movie in "all-in" situations. See more »
This is truly awful. It is unbelievable that movies like this get made much less shown. The only explanation might be that some very rich kids were very well connected.
This was so awful that I want out of my way to register for this site. The plot was so predictable and the writing was so bad, I thought I was watching porn -in fact I was so fascinated by its mediocrity I couldn't turn it off. It's unfortunate that L. Gossett and M. Madsen got sucked into this, it's a perfect example of just what's wrong with Hollywood. not to mention "ace" Anderson -huh? talk about porn. porn names. porn plot and porn acting
