Movie Review: Smoking Aces

Smoking Aces is an action packed flick, which takes the viewer deep into the seedy underbelly of organized crime. Oh, what a journey they take us on.

Buddy “Aces” Israel is a Las Vegas performer who uses his charisma to work his way up the mafia ranks. When it looks like he is going to turn rat, his arch enemy places a million dollar bounty on his…heart. Yeah, every “would be” hit man in the world comes to claim the prize.

Action packed, and full of enough twists and turns to keep you guessing, this movie is a must see, not just for lovers of a good “shoot ‘em up”, but for anyone who loves a good plot driven story.


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 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.

Rating: 5 Stars

I live in the stoneage and just got netflix. The first thing I did was stock up on Mob films. I'll look for this and put it on my list.

Hi, James! Good review. Hubby likes action and adventure. He'd probably enjoy this more than I would. I love scifi and horror movies. Oh, guess you know that though!

We rented that flick a couple weeks back. I picked it out, so your cousin automatically assumed it would be stupid. Then he watched it with me and couldn't keep his eyes off the TV screen. Guess not all moveis I pick out are stupid after all. But he'd never tell me that.
