Smokin' Aces (2006)

Posted on Monday, January 28th, 2008 under Reviews | No comments

5 out of 5 burst and bloody arteries

Just watched Smokin’ Aces the other night. Wow. And more wow. While there is far too much profanity and bloodshed to safely recommend this to any of my friends, it is by far one of the best movies I have seen in a while. The immersive story-line is great and similar to something like Ocean’s 11 … just replace every time you see Brad Pitt eating with 10 dead bodies and you got the idea. ;)

Each of the “villains” is expertly scripted and crazy unique (or in the case of the ‘Tremor brothers’, just straight up crazy!). I don’t really know the director (Joe Carnahan), but the quality of the cinematic build that this film has, makes me want to see more of his work. Any recommendations?

If you’re looking for a great “guys night” flick, this would be one of those fist-pumping thrill-rides that you probably shouldn’t leave out.
