Wild Card

The plot of the film revolves around a retired military man Nick who, even in civilian life, doesn’t put his gun under lock and key, but uses it as a working tool.

And Nick is a first-class specialist in this matter. But even people like him sometimes have to face problems that are not solved so easily. The hero crosses the road to local bandits who run one of the most popular casinos in Las Vegas. It would be quite logical to say that the gang leader will send his accomplices to deal with Nick once and for all, but this time the plot will not be so straightforward.
