MacShayne is a gambler and small time con-man. After serving a short stretch in jail, he goes to Las Vegas to see his son, but when he gets there, his ex-wife is no longer where she use to live and work and left no forwarding address. Leggett, a recently retired cop, approaches him and tells him that he will help him find his son, if he does something for him. It seems that he is planning to rob a hotel casino and he needs three guys to pull it off. Now two of the guys he recruited has agreed to it but the third is uncertain, so he sets up a poker game wherein MacShayne is suppose to clean him out thus giving Leggett some leverage on him. After doing that he discovers that Leggett is duplicitous and is going stab everybody in the back. So he decides to turn the tables on him. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Entertaining Movie
4 May 2001 | by ROKSee all my reviews

Well this was a great way to spend an evening, I mean it's obviously well atleast at the end ] a pilot for a hoped series of movies or TV series, but in it's self it's an entertaning few hours.

Kenny rogers is a recently released "con" who checks into a hotel looking for his ex-wife and gets embroiled in a plan to rob a casino in Las Vegas.

With guest appearances by a number of known faces from the world of TV most noticeably Barry Newman, still known to people of my generation as the hopeless house builder but un-beatable lawyer Petrocelli.

This is a nice movie, with good action sequences and enough twists to keep you interested.

One thing though either there was an injury of the main star or something 'cause he seemed to do a good stunt fight early on then they put in a not very similar stunt man for a sequence that seemed little more than a scuffle, not sure why there.

But definatly worth checking out.
