Danger pays well
8 May 2019 | by jameselliot-1See all my reviews

I love Jo's movies. Danger Pays is a change of pace, a rare comedy with Jo playing a snappy con man trying to get his hands on a counterfeiting scheme. It's hilarious and Jo has flair for comedy. Well shot and edited with underworld characters and ditzy women right out of a comic strip.
