"Not the most original storyline: a guy heading nowhere with his life. His only assets are his muscles which he uses in ways that don't make for an honest living. His gambling and boozing drives his finacee (Charlene Tilton) to the arms of his adversary, Rico. He cleans up his act, but must fight one last fight. Guess who wins? Wincott and Tilton are too talented for such a lame script, but Jeff Wincott's talents make up for it."
Only for fans of B action movies and Jeff Wincott

"Jeff Wincott is a hardcore gambler who is about to leave Vegas, but not without paying off a debt he owes. When he pays it off he ends up getting bullied into a fight. He loses the fight, his money, and his girlfriend.
Ugh, this movie is pretty bad. Everything is predictable, and the acting by the girlfriend is horrible. The only good thing is Jeff Wincott. He gives a good acting performance, and like always he shows some great emotion in his fight scenes. There are a ton of fights in this movie, but none are really good. Gary Daniels gets a decent cameo fight, but the only fight I liked was the finale. Not even the finale was that good, but it picks up by the end of it. So in short, I recommend passing on this movie unless you are a really huge fan of Jeff Wincott.
Picture quality on the Madacy DVD is decent. Best thing about this DVD is that it has 45 minutes of trailers."

"I think Jeff Wincott is a good martial artist and shows charisma in this film. Its a different sort of storyline than the average B Grade but i like the way its been put together. Its about Jeffs character who is a local living in Las Vegas and has a bad habit for gambling, drinking and whatever else, one night as he was planning to leave the city for good with his wife he begs her for one last bet on an illegal fight organized by Rico (Steven Vincent Leigh) who he ends up fighting eventually but not only does he lose all his money, he mistakingly bet his wife as well! thinking he could beat Rico. It takes a while until he turns over a new leaf, gets back into training and tries to convince his wife he has changed for the better."
