The Prediction
27 March 2013 | by (Brooklyn NY USA) – See all my reviews

***SPOILERS*** Taking his son out to the carnival on his day off Detective Chris, Stephen McNally,spots former Murder Inc. hit-man Danny Arketto, Anthony Caruso,there with what seems to be his 10 year old son. In that Arketto runs a of games including a fortune telling stand at the carnival Chris decided to put the squeeze on him and have it shut down for false advertising: In saying that it's star attraction Stana, Jorja Cutright,can predict the future. Stana in proving that she and her act is in fact the real McCoy gives Chris a reading free of charge. The reading that Jorja gave him not only turned out to be eerily accurate but in fact ended up saving Detective Chris' life!

Chris also finds out that Arketto has been secretly married for some 12 years with a 10 year old son that he wants to keep his criminal background from being found out about. Arketto goes so far as having his wife murdered by his goons when she threatened to leave him with his son for good and move in with her mom. While all this is going on the predictions that Stara told Chris start to come true and in fact clues him in to what's to eventually happened to Chris when Arketto's goons get their hands on him.

****SPOILERS*** The final showdown with Arketto comes like Stara predicted at the Full Moon Bar & Grill with Chis getting knocked out and held hostage by Arketto and one of is goons. It was the knowledge of Stara's prediction that ended up saving Chris' life by turning Arketto and his goon against each other. And with that,in knowing that she's the real deal not a fake, Chris changed his mind in closing Stara the Fortune Tellers' act down. But in the end Stara saves Chris the trouble by herself shutting down her act and leaving town anyway. With all the damage her predictions or prediction had already caused no amount of money could get her to do any more kinds predicting, good or bad, again.
