...a ridiculously overblown and borderline incoherent mess that possesses virtually no positive attributes.

Audience Reviews for Hard Luck

Hard Luck is all over the place and didn?t seem to have any direction, It had too many problems and just wasn?t worth the 101 minutes.

It's like a part of Pulp Fiction in this non-stop action as I'm a fan of Wesley Snipes. Jacquelyn Quinones is a very hot Latina actress in her stripping and naked scenes. And the first first I ever seen Cybill Shepherd plays the role as a serial killer in this film.

Hard Luck surprised me. It was not what I expected from Mario Van Peebles, who wrote, directed, and played a small part in it. It was a very twisted and freaky movie where people's lives cross and intertwine. An ex-hustler, a cop, a stripper, and a couple of serial killers make this movie one messed up flick.

IMDB says that it follows the ex-hustler as he tries to lead a normal life. That lasted about five minutes. It just gets fucked up after that. You should watch this to see Cybill Shepherd as a serial killer, if nothing else. Wow!
