New York Times - 08/07/1998
"...SNAKE EYES matches the opening sequence in adrenaline-pumping excitement..."
Box Office - 10/01/1998
"...A taut, claustrophobic thriller....SNAKE EYES is saturated in style....[For Cage] the film is yet another splendid showcase, complete with action, snappy dialogue and romance..."

"...De Palma, the consummate visual stylist, orchestrates wonderfully complex camera movements for SNAKE EYES, a symphony of pivots, swirls, feints and dodges..."

Product Description:

From its incredible opening tracking shot to its suspenseful finale, this Brian De Palma thriller maintains a giddy, fever pitch of cinematic style and excitement. Nicolas Cage stars as Atlantic City detective Ritchie Santoro (his explosive energy and flashy clothes mirror the tone of the film), who finds himself heading a high-level investigation after the U.S. secretary of defense is assassinated at the championship fight he's attending. Ritchie's old pal Naval Commander Kevin Dunne (Gary Sinise) was assigned to guard the secretary and now fears for his career. A mysterious beautiful woman in white (Carla Gugino) has something to do with the case but is lost amid the 14,000 spectators trapped in the sealed-off arena crime scene. Meanwhile, a raging hurricane is tearing up the boardwalk outside, and as Ritchie begins to unravel the mystery through the casino's massive camera security system, he discovers truths he'd just as soon not have known about. Taking place almost entirely within the confines of the arena and casino on a single dark and stormy night, SNAKE EYES zips along merrily, delivering loads of glitzy atmosphere and fun, Hichcock-style suspense. The appropriately Bernard Herrmann-esque music score is by Ryuichi Sakamoto.
