I just watched a criminal action with a bit of drama – “Smokin’ Aces“. And I liked it. There were some really good things about. The photography was creative, fresh, and interesting. Costume design as a part of character development was outstanding. Especially those Nazi punks … they looked and behaved like they were no less than “Rammstein” band. Bloody scenes were as bloody as they should be in such a movie, and the humor had a nice black scent to it.
One other thing that well was the cast. There are a lot of characters in this movie, and there is not much time to develop them or to go into depth with each. But it wasn’t a problem – everyone performed really well. Sometimes it felt like the good old “Lock, stock, and two smoking barrels“. It wasn’t that good though.
Overall, a very decent movie for the fans of the genre. 7 out of 10.
