Synopsis


Smokin' Aces
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. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Fun Movie

    I loved this HD DVD Combo disc. The best of both worlds in one disc. I've based my review on the Hi Def side. I enjoyed watching the film in Hi resolution the colors are vivid and beautiful and the interactive features (picture in picture,cast interviews,behind the scenes and a special assassin tracker all accessed by the U-Control at the main menu). The real reason to own this title is the special features and HDi Interactive features make this movie worth owning.

    This movie was so much better then I thought it was going to be. I am not the kind of person who usually likes 'shoot 'um up' movies but this one had a plot and over all feel that kept me glued to the edge of my seat! Ryan Reynolds is amazing, a really great performance. I would highly recommend this. You should see it, if for no other reason, then just for the fact that they kill off Ben Affleck no more then 30 minutes in, lol. GREAT FILM

    This is the third time I've bought this movie. Once on DVD, once on HD DVD, and now on blu ray. This is another one of those stupid fun action movies that is actually real smart. The cast is insane, so many big names for such an unknown film. Some of it can be a little hard to follow the first time, but it makes for a great rewatch. With so much action this movie really benefits from HD and surround sound.

    Smokin' Failure

    While the carnage certainly had style, the movie utterly lacked substance. While I do not want to give anything away, the 'reveal' at the end is so badly done that it invalidates the plot to a large degree. I also feel Jeremy Piven's talent was wasted as his character spent a large amount of the movie OD'd, or otherwise semi-conscious. Final Verdict: Fail.

    I saw this movie when it came out to theaters and i was amazed at how good this movie was. I was expecting an ok movie but it was just amazing. It's just a movie about hitmen who go after a guy with a one million dollar contract. Go and buy this movie!

    Wow, not what I expected

    This was not what I expected. I thought I would see a more solid storyline, that would seem a bit more realistic. This movie was packed with action and the good old fashion gun battle, but left a ton to be desired.....My opinion-Rent it!

    I love this movie. Like most guys, I am an action junkie and this movie will definitely give you your fix. Guns, chainsaws, explosions... And they even manage to fit a pretty decent plot in there, too. LOL

    Quentin Tarantino formula, still a great movie though. This is a great one to add to the collection. Ryan Reynolds blew me away. Alicia Keys, whew Stingn' Hot! Great action, great every thing. See for yourself...
