Enough artillery, broads, and bloodshed to satisfy any adventure hound.
November 3, 2018
A poor effort, packed with sub-par Tarantino-esque anecdotes.
May 22, 2018
Definitely a mess, but a hugely happening one.
November 3, 2012
A guilt-free return to the kind of stylish action thrillers that rely on strong characters just as much as they do carnage.
August 28, 2009
The poor man's Guy Ritchie, which is sad since the poor man already has Guy Ritchie

The best Tarantino riff of 1994.
September 22, 2007
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.
July 23, 2007
Could've been a classic belch of grindhouse-throwback foolishness if not for Carnahan's apparent need to take his story seriously after all.
July 11, 2007
A great ensemble cast, along with excellent direction makes this a gem worth the watch...

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.
May 3, 2007
An uneven, overly stylized mess that wants to recall Quentin Tarantino, but which only mines the glitz, not the depth or the sharpness of Tarantino's dialogue.
April 29, 2007
It's flashy and feels hip, but I wonder if it's all just a smokescreen much like the one in the film's plot.
April 27, 2007
It's instantly engrossing, stays great for about 45 minutes and good for another 20, then begins collapsing under the oppressive weight of taking itself very, very seriously.
April 16, 2007
It's never boring for a minute, and it's a ridiculous, fun waste of time.
March 24, 2007
The biggest and most unfortunate problem with Smokin' Aces is the complete lack of anyone to root for or even against.
March 7, 2007
does little more than ape some vague Quentin Tarantino/Guy Ritchie cinematic style

A list of players doesn't quite indicate the pile-on of firepower that will converge for the final showdown, or the convolutions of plot that draw everyone to the same location.
