From Back Cover:

"De Palma's thriller will leave you breathless."
-Siegel Entertainment Synidicate

From its sensational opening shot to its atmospheric final showdown, Snake Eyes seeths with inventiveness and suspense. Nicolas Cage and Gary Sinise Star in this acclaimed Brian De Palma thriller that combines the glitter, glamour and bedlam of a heavyweight championship fight with pulse-pounding mystery and excitement.

Cage plays Rick Santoro, a flamboyant Atlantic City police detective who's come to watch the fight and cash in on the hectic bettign action. Suddenly, gunfire cuts down a ringside government official, and 14,000 fans suddenly become 14,000 suspects. What eyewitnesses saw, what a casino-wide spycam network reveals and what a mysterious woman in white knows - all lead to a shattering truth Santoro does not want to believe.

A nerve-jangling thriller!"
-Chicago Tribune

My Comments:

Despite the fact that it stars two of my favorite actors, about all I can remember of this film is that I didn't like it much.
