So my fellow Epicians it's your friendly neighborhood reporter Epic-1. This time I am reviewing the Smokin' Aces prequel - Smokin' Aces 2: Assassins Ball. The movie follows the basics of part one and if you did not see part one don't worry because part 2 has nothing to do with part one. The only thing is, we see the introduction of the Tremors family, which leads to the Tremor Brothers in part one and also Lazlo Soot.
The story is there are assassins that are paid to kill a man who is Walter Weed (Tom Berenger). He lived his entire life behind a CIA desk and the CIA gets word that he's going to be killed on April 19th, at 3:00 sharp. Protecting Walter is a hand full of Agents including Agent Baker (Clayne Crawford), who is in charge of the whole operation and is trying to find out why these assassins are after Walter. The assassins definitely make the movie; we have Finbar McTeague (Vinnie Jones) aka The Surgeon, and we have the Tremor family - the father Fritz Tremor (Michael Parks), the one son Lester Tremor (Maury Sterling), then we have Baby Boy Tremor (C. Ernst Harth) and the hot sister Kaitlyn "AK-47" Tremor (Autumn Reeser). Next we have Lazlo Soot (Tommy Flanagan) the man of a thousand faces and we see how he does it right from the beginning. And finally we have the hot latina assassin Ariella Martinez (Martha Higareda) who has the poison ivy thing going, as she has some lip thing that when people kiss her they die. Let me say that she is hot and we get to see her in lingerie right in the beginning of the movie. But that's nothing compared to Kaitlyn Tremor who we see fucking a Navy guy and then delivers probably the best line in the movie when she kills him, "Dismissed Soldier." So all these assassins are being paid 3 million dollars to kill Walter and we find out that some guy called Hal Leuco set it up. There is a lot of gunfire, a naked chick, and exploding clowns for everyone. The ending has a great twist and it fulfills the needs of a good beginning for Smokin' Aces part one.
Smokin' Aces 2 was really good and it is totally a guy's movie. Explosions everywhere and we have two hot females as well. The story line follows the basics of shooting leaving almost everyone dying or being killed. The ending was great and I was glad he got what he deserved. Who is he? Things that make you go Hmmmm. Baby Boy was hilarious he was definitely my favorite character.
So in conclusion, go get this DVD, watch it and enjoy. I'm giving Smokin' Aces 2: Assassins Ball 3.5 stars out of 5 stars and it has been Epic-1 tested and TOV approved!!!
Peace up out!!! Epic-1
