Fresh out of jail, motor-mouth con man Gabriel Cane (Woods) sets up a bet with local gangster John Gillon (Dern) in which ageing prize fighter 'Honey' Roy Palmer must knock out 10 opponents within 24 hours. The con is on but exactly who is scamming who?

To call this 'The Sting' of our generation (age 29) would not be an exaggeration.
Midnight Sting (aka Diggstown) is a fast-paced barrage of hustle, con and outsmart from start to finish!
James Woods is on, as always, fantastic form. Playing a role that seems very close to home for the poker playing intellectual.
A great supporting cast help make this film one of the best box office under performers ever.
The plot doesn't need explaining the film should be watched with no prior knowledge of whose who! Can you guess the final twist before it happens! I doubt it!

Very entertaining and satisfying scam movie with a boxing theme, James Woods in full smart arse, smart mouth mode and Lou Gossett jr as the has been boxer roped into the con.

It pulls you in all the way through then sucker punches you at the end. Don't worry though you enjoy the treatment.

This has to be one of the best all time hussler comedy type movies.
An apparently over the hill ringer vs 10 of the young men of a town proud of its boxing history, wood is totally believable as the hustler, gosset jr is a convincing over the hill fighter and the rest of the cast pull in around these two's performances.
Well worth a watch and at 3.99 you cant loose.
