Last night I was coerced into seeing Smokin' Aces. Ok, ok, I admit, I ended up walking into the theatre voluntarily, but it wouldn't have been my movie of choice had I been asked to pick the flick. I figured with Ryan Reynolds and Matthew Fox and Ben Afflick I would at least get a little eye candy out of it, but sadly, the gentlemen were all covered with hideous facial hair!
Upon leaving the theatre, my initial assessment of the film was that I liked the ending, but the movies was overall pretty f'ed up and bloody. Today, I am thinking that the movie wasn't so bad after all. I mean, I sat through the entire film and not once felt the urge to check out the time to try to figure out how much longer the movie would be going on for. It kept me on my toes and there were not very many instances where I thought, Oh I know what's going to happen next. It was also really nice to be a theatre that wasn't full of kids (this movie carries an 18A rating).
