#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Mob boss Primo Sparazza has taken out a hefty contract on Buddy “Aces” Israel, a sleazy magician who has agreed to turn state’s evidence against the Vegas mob. The FBI, sensing a chance to use this small-time con to bring down big-target Sparazza, places Aces into protective custody-under the supervision of two agents dispatched to Aces’ Lake Tahoe hideout. When the word of the price on Aces’ head spreads into the community of ex-cons and cons-to-be, it entices bounty hunters, thugs-for-hire, deadly vixens and double-crossing mobsters to join in the hunt. With all eyes on Tahoe, this rogues’ gallery collides in a comic race to hit the jackpot and rub out Aces.
Plot: When a Las Vegas performer-turned-snitch named Buddy Israel decides to turn state’s evidence and testify against the mob, it seems that a whole lot of people would like to make sure he’s no longer breathing.

Sometimes wild, sometimes confusing action-thriller that boasts a great cast, but in the end, this wasn’t a Carnahan movie that really did it for me. **2.75/5**
I don’t think I can tell you that _Smokin’ Aces_ is **good**. But I have seen the movie on three seperate occasions in the past thirteen years, roughly evenly spread apart. And each time I have not only enjoyed it, I enjoyed it more than the last time. This movie is **very** dumb. But fast and fun and oh boy what a cast.
_Final rating:★★★½ – I really liked it. Would strongly recommend you give it your time._
Gore and Grins for the Guys
Here’s another addition to anyone’s list of definitive “guy flicks”. Compared to testosterone treats like Jason Statham’s pair of Transporter stints, this one offers a more complicated plot, fewer explosions and chases, but more gruesome killings. Plus some fine touches of grim humor, and a dash of eye candy. It comes from the fertile, if demented, mind of Joe Carnahan, who struck first with the cheapie hit Blood, Guts, Bullets and Octane, before upgrading to studio-quality crime drama in Narc. Arguably, he’s the US doppelganger for England’s Guy Ritchie (Lox, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch – both also featuring Statham), since he’s less arty and cinematically historical about showcasing mayhem than Quentin Tarantino.
Jeremy Piven plays a Las Vegas lounge star and gangster wannabe, who first endears himself to the Mob, runs afoul of the local Capo, then offers his testimony to the FBI in exchange for protection and profit. When the Mafiosi put a $1M price-tag on his head, hordes of hit persons (solos and teams, male and female, foreign and domestic; the EEOC would be more than satisfied with this field’s diversity), some hired, others freelance, converge on the casino penthouse in Lake Tahoe where their quarry is “hiding”, while his agent (gifted, yet underemployed, Curtis Armstrong) negotiates terms with the Feds.
The deep cast includes Ben Affleck, Ray Liotta, Andy Garcia, Jason Bateman, Alicia Keys, and plenty of other familiar faces. Carnahan careens among multiple arenas of plotting, with FBI briefings filling in the audience and their agents on some of the players they’re about to face, building to the inevitable chaos of competing factions converging on Piven and his legion of bodyguards, in what promises to be a dazzling display of carnage and comedy. The reality comes pretty close, with a couple of cool surprises along the way.
Unfortunately, Carnahan, like a certain US President who comes to mind, crafted his superb attack without a viable exit strategy. After the cosmic convergence, there’s more exposition and anticlimactic wind-down than anyone needed, or the preceding frenzy deserved.
Enjoy the movie, fellas. But for those who wait (or double-dip), expect the DVD’s extras to include at least one alternate ending, and several bloody and/or sexy deleted scenes that were axed for optimal running time, rather than lack of titillation.
I don’t know where to begin with the movie, so first will explain the summary title I chose! :o) That has nothing to do with the movie Die Hard. If you’ve seen Smokin Aces, than you surely must have noticed, that some characters don’t die off that easily … Most of them actually, Die Hard … Some of them might not die at all .. but that’s another story! The movie starts off with introduction to the main characters. Some of them are introduced with a voice over, others just with their name and (former) job title. Ben Afflecks group is the first to get hit and it happens quick! Which is exactly how the movie is supposed to be like.
You have one liners and some explicit violence (blood all over the place), which is something that one should expect. Nothing for the faint of heart then, but for everyone else with a taste for … action!
