Smokin' Aces (2007)

1 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

Every Which Way But Deuce

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Writer/director Joe Carnahan (Narc) brings his shaky, kinetic style to this pale, distant cousin of Tarantino's breakthrough works from a decade ago, today so stale and derivative that it more closely resembles knockoff Guy Ritchie (Snatch) than QT himself. A huge collection of colorful hitmen, cops and other misfits race one another to get to the Sinatra-like casino performer Buddy 'Aces' Israel (Jeremy Piven), locked away in a primo Lake Tahoe hotel suite. Carnahan's poor planning botches the story's timing, leaving various characters stranded and waiting for large chunks of time, but otherwise it flows directly through the expected, well-worn action/crime movie ruts. The large, poster-friendly cast includes Ben Affleck, Alicia Keys, Taraji P. Henson, Andy Garcia, Ray Liotta and Ryan Reynolds.
