| Since Smokin' Aces is the film we are most excited about in January, we had hoped Joe Carnahan would stick to his recent trend of daily updates. Since there is no new media with him just yet, figured we might as well point out another positive review for the film plus some new movie stills.
Screening & Stills: Smokin' Aces
The good people over at AICN have posted their own official review for the film and point out that if you like Quentin Tarantino or Guy Ritchie, you will love Smokin' Aces.
You see, Joe Carnahan couldn’t have put together a film more tailor made for me and my tastes unless he also had managed to coerce Keira Knightley and Nora Zehetner to film a Babysitter/schoolgirl make out scene that somehow found its way into the film for five or so minutes. Really. That’s all that was left on the list. For anyone who keeps Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, True Romance, Snatch, Boondock Saints, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Domino and Killing Zoe all on the same shelf because, well, that’s how God intended it, this fucking movie is for you.

Imagine, if you will, the last 20 minutes of True Romance stretched out over the course of an hour and a half, just spilling over the edges with cool as all get out felons played by actors you’re not used to seeing in such small roles – and rife with rampant stupidity and bad luck slamming headfirst into the actions of professional killers. It is the styles of Tony Scott, Guy Ritchie, Troy Duffy, Quentin Tarantino and Roger Avery thrown into a blender set on puree and whipped into a nice, frothy, bloody smoothie.

Smokin' Aces opens on January 26th, 2007.
