, the new dark action
comedy from Joe Carnahan, the acclaimed director of Narc
In these interlocking tales of high stakes and low lifes,
Mob boss Primo Sparazza has taken out a hefty contract on
Buddy "Aces" Israel (Piven
)--a sleazy magician who
has agreed to turn state's evidence against the Vegas mob.
The FBI, sensing a chance to use this small-time con to
bring down big-target Sparazza, places Aces into protective
custody-under the supervision of two agents (Reynolds and
) dispatched to Aces' Lake Tahoe hideout.
When word of the price on Aces' head spreads into the
community of ex-cons and cons-to-be, it entices bounty
hunters, thugs-for-hire, smokin' hot vixens and
double-crossing mobsters to join in the hunt. With all eyes
on Tahoe, this rogues' gallery collides in a comic race to
hit the jackpot and rub out Aces.

People Movie Review Smokin' Aces
This movie was a total waste of time. It
had a good cast that was written into
one of the crappiest movies I have ever
seen. Me and my friends were going to
walk out because it was so miserable.
This wannabe Snatch of a movie was the
biggest waste of $7, I would recommend
giving it to your friend and
asking him to punch you in the
stomach...It is 1am on a Saturday
night and me and my boys decided to go
home early and I am writing a
movie review because this movie put us
in such a bad mood.
I was never so confused by movie, but
the hundreds of smokin' aces and
contract killers have given me a
headache. But, for people that like the
blood bath as well as the cursing in
this movie should definitely go out to
see it. I first hated it, but then I got
used to the weirdness and liked it.
Have fun watching it!
