Smokin Aces 2: Assasin's Ball - FILM
Un-insulting follow up to the underwhelming original. It looks cheaper (“Lets set it all in one set!”) and it doesn't add up to much, but it's a breezy violent ride for a lazy afternoon that doesn't cause your eyes to explode out of your skull (DTV syndrome) There's a convoluted story with lots of useless style coupled with some forgettable character actors appearing on screen only to get blown up moments later in a rain of computer generated gore (Urgh!) Will people ever learn it's a sin to introduce a bad-ass and then kill them straight off without them doing anything cool? The best part was the laugh out loud final shot that performs what I always wanted to see when those bloody “Twist Endings” pop up. It's the best thing the director of "LOST BOYS: THE TRIBE" and "FROM DUSK TILL DAWN 3" has ever done!
