Wild Card (2015) Trailer and top movie quotes
Nick Wild (Jason Statham) is a Las Vegas bodyguard with lethal professional skills and a personal gambling problem. When a friend is beaten by a sadistic thug, Nick strikes back, only to find out the thug is the son of a powerful mob boss. Suddenly Nick is plunged into the criminal underworld, chased by enforcers and wanted by the mob. Having raised the stakes, Nick has one last play to change his fortunes…and this time, it’s all or nothing.
Nick Wild: I’ve been knocked down, blown up, lied to, shit on, and shot at. So nothing surprises me much anymore, except the things that people do to each other. I’m a licensed pilot, took karate in Tokyo. I lectured on economics at Yale. I can memorize the front pages of The New York Times in five minutes, and repeat it back to you in five weeks. I was National Golden Gloves champion three years in a row. I’m fluent in four languages, and can wrestle with a menu in five more.
Cyrus Kinnick: Jesus!
Nick Wild: Don’t interrupt me. There’s more.
Cyrus Kinnick: More?
Nick Wild: Yeah. I lie a lot.
Nick Wild: If they kill me?Holly: I’ll be miserable for days.
Cyrus Kinnick: Safety means much to me. I checked under every synonym for safety, but there was no Nick Wild.
Nick Wild: Well, you should have tried between “chapels” and “charm schools.”
Cyrus Kinnick: Being smart is the only defense I’ve ever had, but it’s not enough anymore.
Baby: It seems that somebody broke into room 3506 last night, beat up on three guys, and took $50,000.
Nick Wild: And that was before I had my Wheaties.
Baby: [laughs heartily] If only that were funny.
Nick Wild: I know now what I really need.
Cyrus Kinnick: What’s that?
Nick Wild: ‘Fuck you’ money!
Nick Wild: Dyin’ ain’t so bad. And at least I’ll be out of Las Vegas.
