    Re: you got a snakes eye

    If they were gambling, you get a snakes eye when you get two dice showing the number one. Would that fit?

    They were not gambling. A villain was troubling a lead positive character in the movie but police trapped him from all sides on the road and there was nothing he could do to escape. Then the positive character looks at the villain and says 'you got a snake's eye'.

    It sounds as if he has an evil look in his eyes.
