Movie Info

A strong cast highlights this tough-minded urban drama. Police have been unsuccessful in making a case against three small-time bookmakers they've been following, but luckily a cop named Iggy (Scott Glenn) happens to catch up with Jerry (George DiCenzo), one of the bookies. Instead of arresting him, he demands money; his brother was deep in debt to the bookies, and the pressure drove him to suicide. Meanwhile, a neighborhood character named Leon (John Turturro) brings the bookies a tip on a bet

However, there are no surprises, there is no intrigue and everything turns out more aggravating than entertaining.

Audience Reviews for Lesser Prophets (The Last Bet)

I found this film in the bargain bin. It?s UK title was The Last Bet. It?s actually quite a good and quirky gangster film. The cast is superb, and the balance of serious drama and comedy is brilliant, but for me the best thing about this movie is the script. Worth checking out, and certainly worth more than the 1 I bought it for!
