Fun little movie! (Blu-Ray review)

"I'll start off by saying I didn't really love the first Smokin Aces. It was alright, and my type of movie, it just wasn't pulled off very well. I wasn't expecting nearly as much from the sequel and I came away a bit surprised!
If you like the over the top, crank-like movies (Crank [Blu-ray] ), this has a lot of that. Unfortunately, rather than making it a pure "Crank" movie, they split it up with some story. I never found myself bored, but was always looking forward to the stylized action scenes.
Yeah, it's stupid - but sometimes thats what you need! If these movies were realistic, they wouldn't be nearly as fun!
Video and Audio were both nice - crisp video and some nice DTS-HD sound. Unfortunately, the poor CG effects really look bad in HD.
Fortunately this one had a lot of nice extras - no U-Control this time around, but a decent set of features on the disc (most in HD).
If you like the crazy over-the-top stylized movies, it's worth checking out. You might not love it, but you'll definitely like parts of it.
I picked it up in the Smokin' Aces: 2-Movie Collection [Blu-ray] pretty cheap, and wasn't disappointed, keeping in mind its a direct to video title."
