Saint John of Las Vegas – Movie Review


An ex-gambler is lured back into the game by a veteran insurance-fraud investigator


St. John of Las Vegas is one of those movies that you’re trying to understand how it possibly got made. Steve Buscemi is a talented actor, but he is not a leading man. Peter Dinklage is completely wasted in this role. Sarah Silverman should not give up her day job. The story is a man who has a compulsive gambling problem. So he decides he hates Las Vegas because of that and ends up in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Through some kind of odd machination he is working as a claims adjuster and then decides that he is going to be promoted to the Fraud Division and therefore he has to go back to Las Vegas. He has a partner who is Romeny Malco who is his mentor in dealing with fraudulent claims. I really don’t want to go into a whole lot more detail on this movie because if you go see this movie you’re wasting your time. Zero stars.
