Snake Eyes

Synopsis: 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.

- I want five large on Tyler.

- Five large? You got it on you? Let me see it.

- What are you, a bank now?

I gotta put up front for the privilege

of betting on a lousy fight?

Yes, you do. Take it or leave it,

because I don't need the aggravation...

Have I ever stiffed you

one time, Jimmy? Name one time.

No, no, you never stiffed me.

It's just that you take forever to pay.

- All right.

- Five grand. I'll see that a year

from next Christmas.

The guy is ten-to-one to win, all right?

I can't make any money if I lay less than that.

I got a very...

very important birthday.

I wanna buy one of those shorty

fur coats they got at the designer

shops over at Caesar's.

You know how overpriced

they are.

Listen, I missed the part

where any of this is my problem.

I made a promise, Jimmy.

I gave my word to someone.

- A man's word means nothing to you

in your profession? Please. - Come on.

Cash means something to me.

Words mean something to somebody else...

All right. Don't move.

I'll be right back.

- Cyrus!

- Hey. Hey! Hey!

Tyler! Tyler! Tyler!

Hey, hold it, pal.

Where do you think you're goin'?

- On the job, sport.

- Oh, sh*t. Sorry, sir.

- Uh, you need a hand?

- On, no, no. I got it.

- Sh*t!

- You kinda went the stupid way, didn't you, Cyrus?

Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow!

I got a cut. I need a medic.

Medic. Medic.

Medic. Medic.

- Well, that's a start.

- What? Wh-Wh-What do you want?

- What do you think?

- No!

- Yes!

- Now, come on, this is not fair. Man, come on!

Call a cop.

- Hey!

- No! Get outta here, man!

You got the wrong attitude about all

of this, Cyrus. You gotta keep positive.

See, when we have these little visits,

I allow you, I permit you...

I give you the opportunity... pay for all the extra

police work that you create.
