May the best hitman win.

In these interlocking tales of high stakes and low lifes, Mob boss Primo Sparazza has taken out a hefty contract on Buddy "Aces" Israel (Piven)--a sleazy magician who has agreed to turn state's evidence against the Vegas mob. The FBI, sensing a chance to use this small-time con to bring down big-target Sparazza, places Aces into protective custody-under the supervision of two agents (Reynolds and Liotta) dispatched to Aces' Lake Tahoe hideout. When word of the price on Aces' head spreads into the community of ex-cons and cons-to-be, it entices bounty hunters, thugs-for-hire, smokin' hot vixens and double-crossing mobsters to join in the hunt. With all eyes on Tahoe, this rogues' gallery collides in a comic race to hit the jackpot and rub out Aces.

A cool and hip flick!! I enjoyed it, had a few laughs, lots of blood and action. Keeps you guessing an awesome ending and Common is just HOT!

The most futile exercise in crass violence anyone could produce without it being a spoof. Disjointed blood bath with no rhyme nor reason.

Could be seen as entertaining but the characters soon become tiresome. A pale imitation of whats been achieved by others.

Did not enjoy this film much. Too much unnecessary blood and violence.

I liked it. Really goof action scenes, though not a classic by any stretch of the imagination. Just quite good
