From the director of 'Superman' and 'Iron Eagle' (Sidney J. Furie) and a fabulous cast that includes Dennis Hopper, Peter Weller, Tia Carrere and Joe Pantoliano, this in-your-face action thriller is crammed with tension and breathtaking stunts - including a dam wall plunge that makes James Bond's famous bungee jump seem like a gentle stroll in the park. It all begins like a perfect day for ex-cop, now ex-con Ray Mercer (Peter Weller). He finally gets out of jail... is met by his stunningly beautiful wife... visits a Las Vegas Casino... and wins a massive jackpot. But, having gently tapped him on the shoulder, Lady Luck is now about to punch Ray very hard in the face. Still on payroll, he shouldn't even be in the casino... his unfaithful wife wants a divorce... and suddenly he's caught up in a brutal heist that's gone catastrophically wrong. And, as the bodies start piling up higher than the casino's chips, the trouble really starts when mysterious gangster called 'The Butcher' arrives. Now, the painful lesson Ray's about to learn is that the big danger with being on top of the world is that it's a very, very long way down.
