Out of 4 stars:

The Last Seduction: Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image
A good neo-noir, with Linda Fiorentino in the role of über-bitch.
Rounders: Posted Image Posted Image 1/2
I was disappointed in this, considering the talent on hand Not a bad film, just one that could have been much better.

Jim,
How similar in tenor are the other films to The Last Seduction?

Well, Marc's description rang a bell, and yes, I have seen The Last Seduction. So, I guess

Marc, the most similar to the neo-noir feel of TLS is Red Rock West & Kill Me Again, the former starring Nick Cage & Dennis Hopper I highly recommend if you like neo-noir/thrillers.

Joy Ride is sort of a modern take on Spielberg's Duel, not as good though very entertaining.

Unforgettable is similar (plot-wise) to Memento without the non-linear approach, though nowhere near as good IMO. Sort of forgettable.

When she embraces, your heart turns to stone
She comes at night, when you're all alone
And when she whispers, your blood shall run cold
You'd better hide before she finds you...
