Metacritic Score

  • 60

    Variety Robert Koehler

    Smokin' Aces blows some cool smoke rings until it makes the very un-cool mistake of overstaying its welcome.

  • 40

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Crust

    It's a grindhouse-inspired concoction that may not contain a shred of originality, but it is executed with unbridled bombast and glee.

  • 10

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    A Viagra suppository for compulsive action fetishists and a movie that may not only be dumb in itself, but also the cause of dumbness in others.
