The movie follows Jake Green (Statham), a hotshot gambler, long on audacity and short on common sense. He’s rarely allowed to play in any casino because he is a winner.
One night, Jake and his brothers are invited to sit in on a private game, where Jake is expected to lose to Dorothy Macha (Liotta), a crime boss and local casino owner who can’t play for diddly-squat, but always wins because people are too scared to beat him. Jake isn’t afraid of Macha, and not only beats him in a quick game of chance, but takes every possible opportunity to insult the man.
Jake leaves the game, and Macha puts out the order for a hit on Jake, who ends up working for and being protected by a pair of brothers, Avi (Andre 3000) and Zack (Pastore), who are out to take Macha down.
