Film poster: “Smokin’ Aces” dir. Joe Carnahan (2006)

A scattershot mess of a film: fast-moving, bloody, humourless and utterly incoherent. Carnahan stacks the script with unlikeable characters, few of whom engage the audience or serve much purpose. The big, clever twist is utterly ho-hum. A miserable attempt at gangster cool.
