Watched the movie Smokin’ Aces last night. I would give it 3 out of 5 stars and would compare it to Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch. Here is a write-up on the film: Smokin’ Aces is a 2006 British-American action thriller film written and directed by Joe Carnahan. The film centers on the chase for Las Vegas magician turned mafia informant Buddy “Aces” Israel (Jeremy Piven), on whom a one million dollar bounty is placed. The ensemble cast includes Ryan Reynolds, Ben Affleck, Jason Bateman, Common, Andy García, Alicia Keys, Taraji P. Henson, Ray Liotta, Chris Pine, and Matthew Fox, all co-starring as the various individuals attempting to either capture or protect Israel.
