After serving twelve years behind bars for armed robbery, tough guy Hank McCain (John Cassavetes) finds himself the pawn of a ruthless mob runt’s rebellion against a high-level don. When McCain discovers that he’s been betrayed and abandoned by his new employer, he retaliates with a high-stakes Las Vegas casino heist that erupts into all-out war on the streets of Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York. Neither blood, nor lust, nor wedding vows can come between McCain and his money . . . or his machine gun. This crackling gangster saga explodes on the screen with spectacular scenes of shocking violence, an unforgettable score by Ennio Morricone, and a remarkable cast that features John Cassavetes alongside his regular collaborators Peter Falk and Gena Rowlands.
