(mbc.net) Written and directed by Joe Carnahan, his 'shoot 'em up' bonanza for assassins revolves around Buddy "Aces" Israel (Jeremy Piven), a Las Vegas magician who somehow grew chummy with mafia boss Primo Sparazza (Joseph Ruskin).

Now that the FBI have Buddy in a twist, his agent (Curtis Armstrong) is brokering a deal with FBI Deputy Director Locke (Andy Garcia), while the mob has unleashed an army of assassins to smoke "Aces" and retrieve his still beating heart.

The 1 million bounty lures would-be collectors such as: Lazlo Soot (Tommy Flanagan) a master of disguise and impersonation; Sharice Watters (Taraji P. Henson) and Georgia Sykes (Alicia Keys); Pasquale Acosta (Nestor Carbonell) known for chewing his fingers off so he couldn't be identified by the SAS; the psychotic Tremor brothers; and a team of bail bondsmen led by Jack Dupree (Ben Affleck). Which of them will deliver the beating heart to Sparazza?
