This is one hour and thirty minutes of your life, you'll never get back...
If you love Texas hold'em, do not watch this movie. Actually, it doesn't mater if like it or not, DO NOT WATCH THIS MOVIE!
The acting in "Aces", was just horrible. It makes porn actresses look like possible candidates for an Academy Award. And the cast of this movie are just as credible as Elijah Wood in Hooligans. Because, we all know one of these playboy models majoring in math and kicking ass at the poker tables.
Then again, good actors wouldn't have covered the predictable and shallow plot in this movie. Saying that it's more interesting to watch paint dry, would be an exaggeration, but it's very close to it.
If you're interested in Texas Hold'em, I'd recommend you watch a show called "Tilt", that aired on ESPN in 2005. It's tense and exciting, and have some good poker scenes. In general, it's good television, something "Aces" isn't.
