Smokin’ Aces (2006)

UK/US 109m, Colour
Director: Joe Carnahan; Cast: Ben Affleck, Andy García, Alicia Keys, Ray Liotta, Jeremy Piven, Ryan Reynolds

smokin_acesSmokin’ Aces is an energetic character-driven action crime drama about a magician-turned-mafia informant Buddy “Aces” Israel who is protected by the FBI against a number of comical over-the-top bounty hunters who are sent to kill him. Unfortunately, Israel’s abilities as a magician are largely irrelevant in the story, and all we are left with is an unsatisfying plot twist in the film’s dying moments (Klaus Ming February 2017).
