|It’s a well known and rigorously documented fact that two of my favorite things are stories about professional killers and Jeremy Piven.And I think we can all agree that those two things needed to be intertwined and put on the big screen.|
So on the movies-that-should-be-fucking-great scale, Smokin’ Aces is a 9.0.
And if this movie turns out to be a giant pile of horse shit, you can bet your ass I’m going to piss down someone’s throat.

The only thing this movie’s missing is Ice-T dropping a load in a senator’s cereal bowl and spoon feeding it to him. This flick looks that raw.
Keep your fingers crossed.
Oh and Carnahan, you’ve been warned.
