Burt Reynolds stars as the bitter bodyguard and degenerate gambler Mex in this uneven action film. He wakes up hungover, vowing to rekindle his dream of leaving Las Vegas for good if he can just raise enough money. Mex divides his time working for the low-key millionaire Cyrus Kinnick (Peter MacNicol) at the casino and moonlighting as a paid enforcer. When Mex's pretty neighbor Holly (Karen Young) is attacked by a quartet of perverted thugs, Mex goes after gang leader Danny DeMarco (Neill Barry) and company. The feature was continually plagued by production problems, with three uncredited directors employed in addition to R.M. Richards. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

A blend of drama and action. Karen Young & Peter MacNicol give good supporting performances. Tame compared to the action films today but overall a good movie. If you're a Burt Reynolds fan then check it out.
This is what is called a 'gem'. I'd put this with Carpenter's 'Prince of Darkness' It has something special, maybe a combination of things. Really a great movie that critics and lots of people won't like. Gambling, horror visuals, action & interesting characters. What is not to like. Not a romance! A great movie & one of Reynolds top movies. Easily one of the best gambling movies. Disagree with any critic who says this is uneven, think this is what i'd call a very " even" flick.
