Smokin' Aces 2 - Assassin's Ball (2010)

Unofficial sequel? It has to be, cause it sucked. It really did.

They had a good premise, they had a bunker and everything too, but in the end the only thing that redeemed this one was... the end.

When it's all over not only is there finally a little clarity, but suddenly the quality seems better, and the only re-occurring hitman since the last movie is a bright point in an otherwise bleak showcase.

For a moment he almost made this seem official after all.

It's not terrible, but for the most part it's just not good.

The dialog doesn't lead anywhere. The build doesn't build towards anything worthwhile. The actors are decent, but the sets are disappointing, the choreography's basic and none of them really reach their full potential.

Except for the second girl, maybe. She had a good run. And the only ending in here that felt just a little unfortunate.

Didn't seem as evil re-incarnate as the other Tremors did somehow.

Decent movie as is. Compared to the original? Terrible.

 rated 3/5: not bad

    I heard this was hot garbage. Original may have been slightly overrated

    Yepp, wondering if I maybe rated it too generously here...

    The original one really was good though, had some memorably merciless or macabre moments, the chainsaw scene, the parking lot at the end, the elevator shoot-out, the fingers, the backstories of all hitmen, the backstory behind the hit itself, the caliber of the cast seemed higher too... I've seen it a few times so I don't think that's just a fleeting impression. Though I've no idea how high others rate it...

    Anyway this one... disappointing for sure.
