Smokin' Aces (movie)

This movie is built up after the, lets build up with all kind of bad guys and then let them meet and kick the shit out of each other.

So this is a brutal action movie with all kinds of bad ass criminals against each other trying to hit this mafia guy as well as FBI tries to protect him.

This gives us a really good shootout and one that can be enjoyed. Some scenes are also really well done. Excellent as entertainment.

Where the movie fails is:

1. It tells us too much about the ending early in the movie. While this is a common movie phenomenon and is meant to be a good thing, we don’t need it to be rubbed in - especially when it’s meant to be a surprise.

2. To make us feel identified enough with the FBI to understand why the Agent acts like he does in the end of the movie. In fact its a big question of the whole FBI tactic and why it is done in this way, and which other way it should have been executed in.

3. It does not tell us enough about the bad ass guys that survive.

"What's it all about?"
