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

Audience Reviews for Hard Luck

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!

Sorry, I could not 'feel' for this movie. Wesley Snipes have done some lame B-Movies, but this is up there on his top 5. This was just a weird ass movie. Very strange characters all around. Luis Guzman is a great character actor, but what was he doing in this picture?? I could not get why Cybill Shepherd character was in it at all. When I saw that Mario Van Peebles was in a Snipe movie I thought it would be a kick ass film, right? Wrong. Lame plot, lame action stunts, lame stunts. I tell you, I don't know why I even took the time to watch this at all...

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.
