A guilt-free return to the kind of stylish action thrillers that rely on strong characters just as much as they do carnage.

Could've been a classic belch of grindhouse-throwback foolishness if not for Carnahan's apparent need to take his story seriously after all.

Smokin' Aces isn't the most original endeavor, but it has enough wit, action and dramatic weight to carve out its own rightful place of honor in the crime film genre.

It's never boring for a minute, and it's a ridiculous, fun waste of time.

It wants to be so many things at once that it never truly finds its focus, and yet it manages to be quite a blast anyway.

...by the time the guns start blazing, ...the body count (and the surprise order) really hits home; you actually give a crap whether these people die or not.

The talented ensemble cast and Carnahan's slick, colourful direction ensure that Smokin' Aces remains an enjoyable and engaging thriller, though the violence may be a bit too strong for some.

Somewhere in Joe Carnahan's SMOKIN' ACES there is a really good film trying desperately to get out. Several actually. And therein lays the problem.

If Smokin' Aces had come out one month earlier, it could have been the best movie of 2006. In 07, I imagine there won't be a more exciting work of art all year. It out Tarantinos Tarantino and you just don't want it to end.

Some twists you see coming, but for the most part Joe Carnahan's clever plot keeps you guessing.

...a film that rivals "The Departed" for twists and turns. But it's one hell of a ride!

One wild super-kinetic ride. It's Oceans 11 meets Pulp Fiction and sooooooo much more.

There's enough blood, bullets, boobs, action and octane to keep cheap bags of testosterone like myself interested.

The gleeful sadism and snarky dialogue of the film's opening scenes quickly gives way to something darker and more disorienting, driven by a deep, coruscating disgust at the world's venal duplicity and corruption.
