I went to the world premier of this movie and it was excellent. I was surprised at how they made a hit man movie with a great story so stylish. The action sequences were very entertaining along with Jeremy Piven smart style and elegant acting making this movie superb. It keeps you at the edge of your seat throughout the whole film. It is a very hard hitting mob movie. With some unfamiliarly faces to the hit men. Then there is Ben Affleck who plays Jack Dupree in perfect fashion. I came to see a good crime movie and thats what they gave me. There is no way you cannot like this movie unless <more>
your under seven. It has everything suspense action violence sexiness and even comedy.This movie persists in a much faster version of a Goodfellas and Lucky Number Slevin. Every part makes you hope the next part is better and gives out the impression that the mob could be this hard hitting. All the hit men are played perfect looking to kill this one man who has snitched and they use there weapons the way any action freak would want them to. This movie is a great action with comedy. It is for the family 14 and up. I recommend this to anyone who likes a good crime movie with fashion. I give this movie an 8 out of 10. Make sure you see it when it comes out.
If there's any types of movies out there that I love, it's the ones that straight from the beginning keep you pinned to your seat and make you really watch and pay attention. Starz's The Hollywood Reporter showed a small interview with Ryan Reynold's, and he said he's always done comedy movies and not serious emotional type ones, cause it's hard for him to let out his feelings, but for a first time serious acting movie, he did a dang good job. I thought the movie was done very well. A lot of medium and big name actor's in it too. I can definitely for a first time <more>
seeing Alicia keys in a movie, she did pretty good herself. It was also nice to see Ray Liotta in this too since his last role in NARC.
I thought it was amazing. Awesome cast, and I was absolutely amazed by Piven's performance. It was his character from Entourage mixed with a little mobster. Also I thought that the gore was awesome. Maybe its just me but its nice to see more than shootings and this movie definitely had it. However, it is not for the squeamish. This is a must see, regardless of how the Times or IMDb rated it. Since this has to be 10 lines I'd also like to warn people that it is a very confusing plot to follow in the beginning because the viewer is introduced to a lot of characters but as the movie goes <more>
on you catch on to their names and the roles they play. So don't lose interest because it is hard to follow at first, stick with it and you will not be disappointed.
A lot better than what it's given credit for... (by IamtheRegalTreatment)
I've read some of the reviews for this movie, and I can't agree with them. I completely disagree in that I thought this was a very entertaining movie. The concept was very well thought out but it wasn't perfect, obviously.Basically, the movie was about several groups of assassins all gunning for the same man for the same price. The reason he is wanted dead is because of his snitching and deceitful ways. I'm not going to give anything away, but once you watch the movie you'll know there's a lot more behind that. Only thing you really need to do is pay as close attention <more>
as you can during the beginning, because it does get a little confusing. The story moves along pretty quickly, but you will get the gist of it.Overall, I thought it was very well done. The plot was good, the characters were amazing especially Ryan Reynolds , and there were some nice action parts. Even though it dragged on a little bit during the middle, it was necessary to develop plot details. 9 out of 10 stars from me; it was very entertaining and thought provoking. Last but not least, the white karate kid in the trailer was hilarious, "Why you eye-ballin' me son!?".
things u should know when walking in that theater. NOT A SPOILER (by Tifighter1)
This movie was excellent. I thought that it was great camera work and the plot of the story was original as well as captivating. Go see this movie. I went to the screening and I'm glad that i waited the 45min outside in the 25 degree weather and then another hour inside the movie theater with a bunch of loud people next to me. Trust me...its worth your money and your time. One word of advice though. This movie is not for people with attention problems. You miss one second of this movie or even a word you might miss the whole object of the movie so just be careful. Jeremy Piven Buddy <more>
'Aces' Israel was dramatic as well as freaking hilarious. Ryan Reynolds Agent Richard Messner was also a strong dual character. His comedic presence as well as his strong dramatic performance was enough to make this movie a hit in theaters. The rest of the cast are well known actors who each play there own essential role in the movie and make it that much better. I hope you like the movie and my review. This is my first "official" review on paper but its not my first time writing reviews or watching movies. The movie comes out in theaters on January 26, 2007 so keep an eye out and enjoy.
The best performance I have seen out of Piven (by arthurclay)
And the only reason why this film is getting 9 stars out of 10 from me instead of the full ten is because I wanted to see more of Jeremy Piven. God he is good and was the obvious yet smart choice for this role. Not to take away from everyone else they did a super job but this is Piven's moment of glory. The raw emotion coming out of this guy is unreal. This performance puts to rest once and for all any doubts I had as to whether he is a talented actor. He most certainly is. I wish every actor in Hollywood displayed the same kind of feeling and humanity that this guy does. The wild <more>
characters and a original storyline plus Piven make for one super film. The action is intense and Smokin' Aces doesn't disappoint. The ending is fitting enough and somewhat of a surprise I had another one going in my head even before settling into my chair. I don't recommend many new films out there but people see this one. Smokin' Aces is a blast and entertaining to the max.
The 2007 film lineup has finally begun for me. Sure I have seen many movies thus far, but they have all been holdovers from last year. Joe Carnahan's Smokin' Aces is definitely a fantastic opener and a hopeful sign of things to come. A mixture of high octane action with some very surprising, emotional moments and true dramatic worth, this all-star cast has some fun and allows the audience to just ride the wave with them. Something like this has a big tendency to taper off, yet Carnahan had a vision to jampack every insane idea he's had the past 3 years or so and really keeps the <more>
adrenaline flowing for almost the entire run-time.Our basic plot involves a huge operation that has been going on to destroy every last visage of the mafia. Everyone is pretty much behind bars except one last don, Primo Sparazza. The FBI believes they have their snitch to finally bring Primo in, and his name is Buddy "Aces" Israel, Las Vegas' performer of the year for the past five. This magician had worked his charm into the crime syndicate and had gotten himself in far too deep. So, basically we have the FBI trying to keep him alive until he agrees to rat out everyone, thus granting him witness protection, a bail bondsman and his ex-cop friends trying to extradite him for their employer, and seven hit-man for hire on the case to take him out for a million dollars from the crime boss. Primo is on his deathbed and he wants to see the rat gone before he expires with his heart as proof.Right from the start Carnahan has us inside the action. All exposition needed, to understand the circumstances, is given to us as each player receives it. In a nice stylistic move, the director cuts between everyone around the world getting ready to travel to Lake Tahoe for Israel, making all the conversation match up as though they are all talking to each other. This maneuver enlightens the audience, not only on the plot, but also on the background of each character. So, in turn, we learn all we need while the action continues to play out, never getting bored or slowed down by characters of power dictating stories and plot points. The action continues to build and build, as a result, until finally reaching the climatic rendezvous of everyone at the casino's penthouse room, housing Buddy.A movie of this caliber can only succeed as far as the characters being able to keep the pace fast. As a result we have a collection of some of the best actors working today each with a quick tongue and the dramatic chops to stay realistic. Jeremy Piven is brilliant as Israel, using the comedic wit that has vaulted him to where he is today. The sharp timing allows for some memorable one-liners with his crew and his showmanship in flashbacks really makes you believe he is a skilled magician. What really surprises and excites is his ability to steal scenes with his dramatic acting. His is a man who is beaten into submission mentally and must turn on those he has trusted for the past years of his life. Not being able to get up the illusion of his own composure, we are treated to some great scenes of him breaking down under the pressure. This truly is a Piven we have not seen before and the combination of seriousness and comedy hopefully will get him some great roles in the future. As for the other crazy characters, we have Jason Bateman so far from his "Arrested Development" role that it is hilarious to just look at him, not to mention the words that spew from his mouthpriceless; Ben Affleck and Peter Berg acting cool and collected while dragging their partner Martin Henderson along with them, the rapport between the three is nice; Taraji Henson and Alicia Keys yes the singer are brilliant as hitwomen on the case, talking racial politics and ripping on each other while being just plain badass; and the awesome Zach Cumer as a Ritalin- addled karate kid, so hyper and little that the dialogue and action he gives is some of the best comedy I've seen in awhile. I won't even mention the Tremor Brothers, as you must see them to believe them.The film is not all violence and laughter, though, as it has some phenomenal straight men to counteract the comedy. Common is surprisingly very calm and collected for his first film role, Ray Liotta is great as always, and Nestor Carbonell adds some nice villainy to the mix of cartoon caricature killers. The real standout in the entire movie, however, is Ryan Reynolds. Who would have thought that Van Wilder would have the acting prowess to pull off a complicated role like this? He is the only one involved that seems truly affected by the violence and carnage happening around him. You watch his character lose all the cool he had and emotionally breakdown while being left behind by his superiors in the bureau. Once the dénouement commenced and the film slowed to crawl, almost taking me out of the film completely with its "I'm so clever" twist, relayed by Andy Garcia with the worst fake accent I've ever heard, that subverted all the success the first three-quarters of runtime had, I was shaking my head in disgust. Thankfully Reynolds' stayed true to his evolution as a character and redeemed the horrible ending with a pitch-perfect finally shot.
If you haven't seen this film id better point out which many people have missed in their reviews or ignored is that this film is a comedy, it is not in any way meant to be taken seriously.With that in mind it is a thoroughly entertaining movie. There is a plot about around 5 different flavors of assassins and hit men competing for a $1m contract on an FBI informer Buddy "Aces" Israel, a sure recipe for carnage. There is a deeper plot than that but i wont go into detail as it will spoil the overall plot as there is a very major twist.There are a number of big names in this film <more>
so the acting is superb and there are many scenes which left me both laughing and intrigued.Again i must stress that if you go into this film expecting anything other than a fun, exhilarating action movie not to be taken seriously then you will miss the whole point as many other reviewers have, this is definitely a comedy. A great, fun film for the lads.
An awesome movie, if a little random (by The_Hollywood_Icon)
I went to this film with high expectations having seen various promotions and trailers. Was i disappointed? No The story is that "buddy 'aces' israel" is wanted and there is a contract off $1m for his head. This leads to some of the city's various hit men/women to want a piece of the prize. The overall look of the film is indeed classy, and Reynolds in particular playing his part well. There are some moments that did lead me to question the films point as you will see, they are totally random , but over all it was an enjoyable film. The set pieces are also well drawn <more>
out alongside the various characters, if somewhat a little over acted.Overall, a good action film. check it out
