Likable characters in a noirish thriller with laughs ..........
M.K. Harris and Peter Berg are low level thugs for mobster boss Terrence Stamp in "Genuine Risk", a very entertaining film indeed. Berg is the horse racing degenerate, recruited into crime by his good friend Harris. After Berg is "checked out" in the local bar for her boyfriend Stamp, a torrid affair between Berg and the mobster's trollop, Michelle Johnson, commences.. "Genuine Risk" is an unusual mix of violence and humor, although I never felt the movie was intended as "dark comedy". Our hero, Berg, takes some serious punishment, from Sid Haig playing a bookmaker, in a minor role. This is a truly surprising sleeper, featuring likable characters, a slightly off kilter story, and a fairly outrageous conclusion. Recommended for admirers of the genre. - MERK
