I love ensemble cast movies. Snatch, RocknRolla, Smokin’ Aces etc. This is much like those but with a smaller budget and a weaker script. Starring Christian Slater as John Smith an man who’s just broke up with his girlfriend and decides to go gambling at an Indian Casino. This casino happens to have an Elvis impersonator contest that on a whim he decides to enter, losing but finding four new friends to gamble with, the other contestants. Gay Elvis, Asian Elvis, Little Person Elvis, and Elvis Elvis the winner of the contest. After a night of gambling he is woken up by casino security accused of taking the very valuable warrior mask. And this is where our adventure begins.
There is a cavalcade of cast members all identified for you to keep track with such names as “The Blonde”, “The Cowboy”, “The Girl Next Door”, and “The Chief.” Not a big action or chase movie it’s more of a series of unfortunate events for our poor John Smith.
If this was even at the theater it would’ve probably bombed but it’s a good rental. And a decent round about mystery as well.
