When a shifty magician turns state's evidence against a Las Vegas underworld heavy, the high price placed on his head sparks a fevered race to rub the snitch out and collect a tidy paycheck in Narc director Joe Carnahan's dark action comedy. Buddy "Aces" Israel (Jeremy Piven) is a small-time scammer who has somehow managed to get the goods on big-time mobster Primo Sparazza. Upon discovering that Buddy is about to deliver the evidence needed to get him thrown in jail for life, Primo takes out a sizable contract on Buddy that entices every two-bit thug, grizzled bounty hunter, deadly vixen, skilled assassin, and ladder-climbing Mafioso within a hundred-mile radius into taking a shot at the prize. Now holed up in his luxurious Lake Tahoe hideout with only two FBI agents (Ryan Reynolds and Ray Liotta) standing between him from a virtual army of money-hungry rogues, Buddy is about to find out just how far this motley crew of killers is willing to go in order to take him out and hit the jackpot. Ben Affleck, Jason Bateman, Andy Garcia, Alicia Keys, and Martin Henderson co-star in a bullet-strewn, ensemble crime comedy that never stops to reload.

smokin aces is pretty much snatch meets the crank series, it has the same idea as snatch, it was full of intense crazy action, and it was over the top to the point of absurd lol, and the last 4 and a half minutes where all the assassins get into a big fight with the security at buddy Israel's penthouse was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! lol

When I heard about this “dark comedy,” I thought, well, if it is funny I can put up with all the gunplay. The trouble is this movie was not funny. Lots of guns go bang and lots of people die, including several police officers, but not a single joke is fired off. The director and writer forgot to include the comedy part of this supposed “black comedy.” What is left is distasteful, seriously distasteful. I mean what is the point of watching several non-corrupt policemen being blown to pieces by a 50-caliber sniper rifle? Are we supposed to be uplifted by the fact that the trigger person behind that particular weapon is a foul-mouthed woman with the hots for a non-singing Alicia Keyes? Wow, how far women have come in the movies. Now, they can curse and shoot just like men in mindless action movies have been doing for years. There are a couple of plot twists but who cares. Avoid this one like a loaded gun with the safety off.

Trying to keep track of the huge cast of characters, keeping their various allegiances to the plethora of participating assailants, requires a scorecard in the film SMOKIN' ACES. Writer/Director Joe Carnahan has style and the film's similarity to the many other cop/mob caper movies is evident, but Carnahan like to blitz the eye of the viewer with so much visual information (multiple tracks, quick scene flashes, unexplained flashbacks, etc) that when coupled with a soundtrack that is burdened with overlapping voices and very loud 'music' makes the story confusing. The last remnant of the Mafia lies in Las Vegas, and the FBI, various gangs, and detectives are out to either court the supposed willing informer, lounge comedian Buddy 'Aces' Israel (Jeremy Piven), or kill him before he squeals his apparent vital information. Israel is hiding out in Tahoe in a penthouse papered with drugs, prostitutes, bodyguards, and pursing him are hired assassins, cops, FBI agents, and competing mobs. In the course of the film nearly everyone gets shot, tortured, killed, or maimed and the blood and set destruction are a primary ingredients. The large cast includes Ben Affleck (in a very quick role), Ryan Reynolds (who is actually the star), Andy Garcia, Jason Bateman, Alicia Keys, Ray Liotta, Peter Berg, Martin Henderson, Davenia McFadden, Loretta Wyman, Nestor Carbonell, Joel Edgerton and a host of others who parade by or die so quickly that their character names are difficult to remember. The script has moments of crude comedy, a lot of toilet talk, and an ending that tries to make the entire ride meaningful. It is worth a watch for the pyrotechnics of camera and sound work (and if the viewer has a high tolerance for violence), but renting it first to test your taste is advisable. Grady Harp

The biggest "killers" of the film are timing and the editor's difficulty in trying to show all things at once over the course of the entire flick. The characters are great and the story was simple, but the film didn't keep the focus on piven's character. This is a cool flick with some really great scenes, but the cow was milked too much to make it a really great film. Other work by the director are similar in terms of quality, in that acting and a few great ideas offset each film's expositions.

I thought Smokin' Aces was a really awesome movie. It had tons of action, good actors and a neat plot. Ben Affleck was a perfect choice to be in this movie because he can do a great job. Although, he died in the movie but he should have got Best Supporting Actor. All of the other actors I saw like Ray Liotta did good. This is one of the movies you should add to your collection. It is a real good movie.
