Intacto (2001)

Warner Sogefilms (Spain)
Directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
(DVD, Lions Gate)

A man who "steals luck" from gamblers winning too much money at a casino gets fired and has his "power" taken away by his boss, who seems to collect other people's luck. He seeks out another lucky man, the lone survivor of a plane crash, to use him to make money and get revenge on his employer. The duo work their way through a series of contrived games in order to qualify for the ultimate showdown with the casino owner. Ludicrous plot that implies luck is some kind of real power that can be passed from one person to another stretches the limits of believability.
