EXPLODING MIDGET CLOWNS

This is a great action flick for those who don't take their action flicks too seriously. Walter, a low level FBI worker suddenly has a $3 million dollar bounty on his head and no one knows why. The first part of the movie introduces us to a number of ingenious assassins performing their various skills on their victims. They are all mercenaries.

One group, the Tremor family appears to have been copied from a Rob Zombie film down to the sexy sophomoric humor of Sherrie Moon Zombie as the pretty Autumn Reeser. The action moves along to a good soundtrack. The movie uses its own fast forward for fight scenes. The unrated edition has simulated sex and very brief nudity. While the assassins are being introduced, Walter is moved to a secure bunker in Chicago under a jazz club. The assassins show up and fighting and killing break out between the FBI men and the assassins who also fight amongst themselves. There is a slight plot twist but the story line isn't worth a flip to care. Yes the acting is campy. It is a cult movie and I found it more enjoyable than the first one.

A sequel with only thematic connections to the original

This follow-up to 'Smokin' Aces' has no real connection to original film; it is however similar in that both involve a large number of rival assassins targeting one man. That one man is Walter Weed, a mid-ranking FBI agent who is confined to a wheelchair and has no access to top secret information... an odd target for a $3,000,000 bounty. That isn't the only strange thing about the hit; it is stipulated that Weed must die at 3am on the 19th of April. He and a team of FBI protectors take cover in a protected bunker under a Chicago jazz club while the assorted killers close in on the location. As they wait for the appointed hour the FBI struggle to discover who placed the contract and why.

I thought this film got off to a great start; I was immediately hooked by the question of just why anybody would want to kill an apparently unimportant FBI agent at such a specific time. The introduction to the various assassins is also handled well and they are a suitably mixed bunch. Things then get a little messy; the bunker under the jazz club may be pretty cool but it isn't a logical place for the FBI to hide Weed; surely a remote facility would make more sense. Once the assassins start their attack; both on the facility and each other, things get rather silly... admittedly this is deliberate with red-neck assassins launching exploding clowns into the club! The ultimate explanation as to why Weed is being targeted wasn't a complete surprise but it was still interesting and led to a decent conclusion. Overall I'd say that this wasn't as good as the original film but if you want some action you could do worse.

one shot, one kill......

Walter Weed is an unassuming desk jockey at the FBI when the Bureau uncovers a plot to assassinate him.

A team of degenerate, psychotic assassins dispatched by mystery man Hal Leuco to win a huge bounty includes, a resourceful beauty who has a unique method of killing her prey, a power-tool wielding psychopath, and a deadly master of disguise.....

There are a few nod to the original, and even the assassin from the first one who got away, but it's more of a side-quel to the previous film.

And for once, i quite enjoyed this straight to blu-ray movie. Berenger looks a little constipated as the target, and has playing card skills (see what they did there!!), but does very little else, thus making the scenes with him and his guards, boring and a waste of time.

The rest of the film is silly, but in a ridiculous, enjoyable way. The new assassins are more accessible than the the ones in the tournament, because they do a lot more than just shoot and run, they have a lot more involvement with the story, and a lot of scenes.

Deaths are inventive, which for a film in this sub-genre is vital, and it's very funny at times.

There is a twist, but you can see it from a mile off, and the best part of the film, is the final kill, because it's fresh not to drag out the point of interests death (you will know what i mean when you see the film).

Plus it's the best film ever to feature exploding cannonball midgets.
