Plot

Michael is a talented gambler who thinks his every move ahead and counts only on himself. He pulls out a bold, smart scheme at a luxury European casino. It took him several months to plan the whole thing, every detail was thought through. Michael rolls out his scheme brilliantly until he finds himself up against a mysterious rival (aristocratic Alex) at a poker table. During the game Michael’s cards mysteriously change in his hands. He loses everything, and his scheme gets blown up. Victor – a cruel and dangerous casino owner – is sure that Michael and Alex work together. Victor says that Michael must repay a huge debt – everything that Alex won – and gives him a week to do that.

Michael seems to be facing a deadlock but he has a bright idea. He gathers a team of experts with superpowers to quickly win at a casino and repay the debt. Superpowers of his team members help Michael skip a long preparation process.

Eric is a rich kid, a party boy who has a slight power of telekinesis. He uses the power of his thought to move small objects (e.g., a roulette ball or cubes). Tony is a taxi driver who controls the electrics, devices and tools. For example, he can turn a camera away at the right time. Kevin is a hypnotist, autist who can put any thought into anyone’s head for a short period of time.

Veronika is the last person to join the team. She is a telepath who can hear and transmit thoughts at a distance. Her power helps Michael communicate with his team so that no security service at a casino would catch them.

Michael and his ‘supernatural’ team go to a very expensive casino to win big. But at the game he finds himself up against that mystical rival and ends up in a deadlock putting in danger himself and his team that he has grown to love. To save his friends and his girlfriend the lead character will have to go above and beyond.

 

Review

Fast paced, decent acting, sci-fi with a touch of humor. I like it.
