"Ricky Santoro is a flamboyant and corrupt Atlantic City cop with a dream: become so well connected that he can become mayor. In lieu of that, he'll settle for keeping his comfortable lifestyle. On the night of the heavyweight boxing championship, Rick becomes mixed up in the assassination of the Secretary of Defense, an assassination involving his best friend. Becoming the investigating officer in the case, Rick soon uncovers a conspiracy to kill the Secretary and a mysterious woman in white. The conspiracy was shocking, but not half as shocking as the identity of its mastermind. 'Snake Eyes' provides a fast entertaining story which allows you to relax and enjoy the movie. Watch this movie with an easy going mind and you could find yourself really enjoying the movie. De Palma's camera work, makes this movie worth watching by itself. "Snake Eyes" is a cool thriller which has a certain charm."

"At first I didn't like this film because of the plot twist in the middle that seemed a bit too obvious. But now, as I am finding interest in political thrillers, I find this a fine underrated film. Yes, there's the typical uninterrupted shot from director de Palma, but Snake Eyes is much more than that. There's lots of political intrigue, as well as fantastic performances by Nicholas Cage and Gary Sinise. I didn't really find the ending as deeply satisfying as I hoped, but still, the film overall is a very good one. I would recommend this to those who are into political thrillers . . . and boxing."
