Format: VHS Tape
This movie was not well received, but I'm glad I didn't get suckered in by the bad press. The story centers around a set of stolen plates for printing US currency. Perfect plates...and everybody wants them, including the feds.

Strong ensemble cast carries a fairly clever story. I mean, how can you go wrong with Hopper/Madsen/Ice- T/Roberts/Forsythe et.al. And if you think these guys are miscast, maybe you're missing the humor. Eric Roberts is hilarious as an obvious southern transplant that leans heavily on his best guinea accent when he "tries" to be tough. And Sasha Mitchell from the old Dallas clan is hysterical as his hulking moronic bonebreaker. You gotta believe that Ice-T's not acting when he threatens to go to work on a couple of the boys with a "blowtorch and vice-grips."

RIP Dennis Hopper who was a rare talent that could make a living playing himself, and Madsen is as menacing and strange as ever as a "just how connected is this guy" loanshark. I loved it. OK, this film begs for an alternate ending but otherwise a fun ride. Doesn't deserve the criticism.

When I first saw this movie on Netflix, I thought I order it for myself, it's funny to me in a odd way!

LUCK OF THE DRAW (2002), carries several trumps, in the form of its

roster of actors, namely, the great Eric Roberts, Dennis Hopper,

Michael Madsen, and ICE-T.

The more surprising aspects is its goal in pleasing the younger

audience, by including the famous rapper, and by the mind-numbing,

excessive mortality and brutality shown in this picture, that older

audiences will find unnecessary, unrealistic or tasteless. There is

also the teenage romance that's woven into the story, confirming this

analysis.

In addition, the lesson of the movie is its thesis that there is a

complete lack of moral compass, character and religious feeling among

the people today or at least those shown, such that, each and every

which one was out to cut themselves a deal, devoid of principles,

with money and getting ahead in the world the only guiding factors.

Some viewers may find objectionable the blatant, in-your-face

exploitation of female human sexuality for the satisfaction and

amusement of the crime bosses, played by Hopper and Ice-T. Or the the

brutal beating given to an elderly accountant, who has medical

issues. The fact that so many gangsters are consistently trigger

happy, suggests this is intentional, in order to please the younger

market segment.

Still, this movie is an excellent Hollywood production, guaranteeing

excellent overall entertainment, in its many facets.

Among the strong points to the movie are the action sequences, with

fire-fights with a variety of weaponry, fireballs and explosions.

Format: DVD
Such a waste; what potential this strong cast had. I dunno if it was direction or acting that went sour. And there were more holes in this story than Swiss cheese...SPOILER (below):

it's said that if someone knows just one person, that link would make a mutual connection to the entire world--wellll, they sure stretch that coincidence hard to unbelievable lengths in this movie.

The accountant AND banker work for the same two mobs? who don't know that until the end? The accountant's daughter's got the hots for 'our hero'? who doesn't know ANY of these guys?

Here's three big holes to ponder, just off the top of my head

1) the 'Guineas' come in, acknowledge the cop guarding the hospital patient and in the patient's presence with the door open, they tell the cop they're gonna rough up the patient... and the patient is threatened and 'manhandled', but he doesn't tell the FBI, his next immediate visitors, that the cop's on the mob payroll? You'd think if you were so afraid that you had a cop on the door, ya might wanna be sure he'd at least pretend to protect ya.

2) Ice-T kills the only man who controls his money-- the accountant-- before he finds out where the accountant hid his money? T knows the accountant skimmed 100G's, but he doesn't worry about the 200G's cash the accountant supposedly has stashed for him, he just blows it off, and assumes his banker will come up with a million $$?

3) Who do YOU know who'd sign for a million $$ in a bank and not even look to see if it's money and not bricks (or in this case, phone books) that have been packed in a briefcase?

It's not like this is a Chinese puzzle--I wondered these things aloud as they occurred on the screen...
