Absolute DeceptionCuba Gooding Jr. (The Hit List) continues his string of starring roles in straight-to-DVD action thriller films with his latest, 2013’s Absolute Deception.

When FBI Agent John Nelson’s (Gooding Jr.) key informant, Miles, is abducted and shot, all that’s left is a severed finger. In order to find a new lead, Nelson travels to New York City to learn what he can from Miles’ widow, Rebecca Scott (Emmanuelle Vaugier, Hysteria). Traveling to Australia’s Gold Coast, the two soon discover Miles may have been part of an elaborate “Ponzi scheme” to bilk investors—including a vengeful billionaire—out of millions of dollars. As more layers of Miles’ secret life are exposed, can the two stay ahead of the mysterious attackers who will stop at nothing to halt their investigation?

Originally entitled Deception, but craftily altered to the name Absolute Deception to make it sound even more like a DVD premiere, the film was directed by Australian filmmaker Brian Trenchard-Smith (BMX Bandits, The Quest). It co-stars Evert McQueen (TV’s Terra Nova), Ty Hungerford (Sleeper), Jeff Gannon (Suing the Devil) and Brad McMurray (The Horsemen).

The DVD for Absolute Deception has no bonus features.
