Storyline

Swarthy Paul Yeager arrives in New Orleans, and promptly gets a job bartending at La Cage du Verre, a show bar where his former girlfriend Jacqueline is a dancer and the moll of its sadistic owner, Marko. He and Jacqueline smuggle diamonds and drugs, with the local police detective in on the take. Even though Paul is ex-CIA, he's not undercover, he just wants to win Jacqueline back. His CIA pals from black ops are on hand hoping to arrest Marko's boss. Detective Montrachet finds out Paul's past and sets up a double cross. Her aims are less clear: to get back with Paul, to stay with Marko, or to run her own scam and scamper away? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

the seediest of seedy movies
13 October 2003 | by richardwilson31See all my reviews

ok, i have nowhere to begin in reviewing this movie but seen as there is no other reviews i feel that it is my civic duty to help anybody who is thinking about watching this film.

Firstly, this film is about a dodgy looking character who starts working in a seedy strip club and starts doing EXTRA work for the mob like boss who runs the place. a few twists and turns later you have an ex girlfriend, a seedy cop(great casting in eric roberts by the way), a whole handful of dimands and cia agents. this film is basically your typical low budget, seedy, eric roberts type film that you will either love or hate. however i will promise you that if you give it a chance you will suddenly start to like the twists and turns that the plot has to offer. overall a good steady film, and if you like eric roberts being arrogant in his roles, this is certainly for you.
