Luck of the Draw Movie Review

The biggest thugs in cinema get a workout in Luck of the Draw, a direct-to-video gangster flick that has Dennis Hopper, Eric Roberts, Michael Madsen, William Forsythe, and Ice-T all chasing down a pair of ultra-valuable counterfeit $100 printing plates.

The story is pretty straightforward, as Twin Peaks' James Marshall finds the plates in his possession and discovers has warring factions of thugs as well as cops immediately on his ass. Frankly, that rather pedestrian story occupies the entire film, and it doesn't merit much additional detail.

Riddled with clichés, the film has everything from bad guys that can't shoot straight to cool toughs with homes filled with naked babes (really!). The big shootout at the end -- with more than a dozen guys all in one warehouse room, is totally in slow motion. When Marshall's girlfriend discovers her father murdered one night, she goes to work the next day! Anything for a plot device, I guess.
