Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Smokin Aces is a Viagra suppository for compulsive action fetishists and a movie that may not only be dumb in itself, but also the cause of dumbness in others.
Rotten: We just sit there numbly, awaiting the next sensation and trying, without notable success, to comprehend the preposterous backstory.
Rotten: It wants to be a Tarantino-esque dark comedy about gun-slinging, substance-abusing lowlifes. But instead it's a convoluted, slap-happy, humorless bloodfest.
Rotten: Violence is spread throughout the film, and some of it is entertaining, I have to admit. But the climax at Buddy's Tahoe penthouse is Tarantino on speed.
Much better than expected!
When I first bought this movie I was expecting a regular shoot em up movie, but no. It turns out that this movie actually has a good plot to it, mixed in with great shooting scenes, and occasionally some humour. Overall I would say this is an awesome movie, buy it now.
What started well... fell into a poorly finished climax... It felt like the movie should have elements of humour (like Lock Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels or Snatch) but it didn't. It felt like it should have been a shoot em up... but it wasn't. It felt like it should have been some kind of caper flick.. but it wasn't. I felt like I had just watched something that had just missed its mark. It could have been great... but it wasn't.
This is one of the greatest movies.
It has everything a movie needs action,comedy,and suspense. It is a movie definitly worth buying.
