Il vice-direttore del FBI Stanley Locke (Andy Garcia) ha appena mandato il suo migliore agente, Richard Messner (Ryan Reynolds), ed il suo socio, il veterano Donald Carruthers (Ray Liotta), al nascondiglio poco segreto di Buddy "Aces" Israel (Jeremy Piven) a Lake Tahoe. La loro missione: proteggere il viscido mago di Las Vegas dal boss della malavita Primo Sparazza, mandante di oltre 130 omicidi, contro il quale Aces ha accettato di testimoniare per salvare la propria pelle. Quando al boss giunge voce del tradimento di Aces, mette una taglia richissima sulla sua testa. Non importa chi lo uccide purch? venga eliminato al pi? presto. Ora un folle serraglio di mercenari, assassini e seducenti donne killers giunge a Tahoe per trovare Aces ed assicurarsi quella taglia... a tutti i costi. I teppisti della ristretta cerchia interna di Sparazza hanno un piano di emergenza, nella forma delle irresistibili ma altrettanto letali pantere nere Georgia Sykes (Alicia Keys) e la donna cecchino Sharice Watters (Taraji Henson). Come se non bastasse, i fratelli Tremor, un trio psicopatico di neo-nazisti incestuosi si fiondano come dei segugi sulla scia della ricca taglia. Darwin (Chris Pine), Jeeves (Kevin Durand) e Lestor Tremor (Maury Serling) sono assolutamante privi di rimorso e coscienza, e utilizzano la loro limitata intelligenza per uccidere chiunque si metta sulla loro strada. In aggiunta, killers internazionali, tra cui lo spietato specialista della tortura Pasquale Acosta (Nestor Carbonell) ed il maestro del travestimento Lazlo Soot (Tommy Flanagan), porteranno a Tahoe le loro diaboliche armi.

"Voglio il cuore di Buddy Israel", da questa richiesta fatta dal boss mafioso Primo Sparazza e intercettata dall'FBI, parte la caccia all'uomo a cui parteciperanno tutti i pi? micidiali killer in circolazione. Luogo dell'appuntamento il Lago Tahoe, dove Israel si ? rifugiato in attesa di essere messo sotto protezione dall'FBI.
Killer prezzolati, nazisti fuori di testa, ex poliziotti corrotti, affascinanti assassine sono solo alcuni dei tanti personaggi che prendono parte all'adrenalinico scontro per poter intascare un milione di dollari.
Per presentare i diversi contendenti il regista e sceneggiatore Joe Carnahan utilizza tutta la prima met? del film, per ognuno uno stop motion con tanto di scritte con nome, cognome e soprannome, ma la lunghissima presentazione a volte confusa e caotica, lascia storditi e disorientati, in alcuni momenti anche annoiati.
La seconda parte, invece, ? tutta azione e adrenalina, con esplosioni, sparatorie, morti a raffica e un colpo di scena finale ben congeniato e assolutamente imprevedibile.
A salvare da tanta violenza ? il tono ironico con cui il regista affronta la vicenda, un misto tra il primo Guy Richie e Tarantino.
A ricoprire i vari ruoli ? stato assoldato un cast di all star: Ray Liotta, Andy Garcia, Ben Affleck e Alicia Keys, affiancati dagli emergenti Ryan Reynolds, Peter Berg, Martin Henderson, Taraji Hensone e Jeremy Piven, e non ? detto che saranno gli attori pi? famosi a rimanere in piedi fino alla fine.
Ma tra tutti i personaggi quello che rimane pi? impresso ? l'odioso ragazzino, amante del kung fu, un quattrocchi sfigato con nonna al seguito. (Fonte: filmup.it)
The film opens with Agents Messner (Ryan Reynolds) and Carruthers (Ray Liotta) staking out crime lord Primo Sparazza's estate. Sparazza, one of the leading members of the Mafia, has become bedridden with various medical ailments, including a heart condition. Monitoring a telephone call between Sparazza's underbosses Sidney K. Serna and Victor "Baby Buzz" Padiche, they learn that Sparazza has put out a $1 million hit on Buddy "Aces" Israel (Jeremy Piven), a Las Vegas performer. He also wants Israel's heart brought to him before he dies.
Buddy "Aces" Israel is a noted Las Vegas performer, who could regularly sell out the MGM Grand's main room. As a result of his popularity, Israel had become friends with Primo Sparazza and other Mafiosi in Las Vegas. Sparazza gave Israel his first big break onstage, brought him up through the ranks of the mob, and as a result, Israel became the unofficial mascot for the Vegas mob. Israel started to believe his own press and buying into the hype. He decided to showcase his showbiz power and parlay it into a life of crime, starting and setting up his own criminal scores. Israel slowly amassed the loyalties of Sparazza's top men, with the idea of replacing Sparazza. What Israel succeeds in doing is splitting up the Sparazza crime family into dual factions. Sparazza on one side, Israel on the other. The infighting that followed drew the attention of the federal government, resulting in sixteen concurrent criminal probes on the Sparazza family, with Israel being the target of virtually every one. Given his intimate knowledge of the inner workings of the mob, the FBI is willing to offer Israel immunity from prosecution and entry into the United States Federal Witness Protection Program if Israel turns states evidence.
Israel has currently jumped bail on his lawyer and has secreted himself in the Nomad Casino penthouse suite, located in Lake Tahoe. Messner and Carruthers are informed by FBI Deputy Director Locke (Andy Garcia) that the FBI is currently in negotiation with Israel's agent/attorney, Morris Mecklen (Curtis Armstrong), for Israel's surrender to the FBI and to provide subsequent testimony against the Vegas mob. With the word of the $1 million bounty on Israel's head, Locke informs the two agents that an assortment of degenerate psychopaths and assassins will be seeking to collect. Locke wants Messner and Carruthers in Lake Tahoe ready to take Israel into FBI custody as soon as a deal is reached with Mecklen and Israel.
Meanwhile, bail bondsman Jack Dupree (Ben Affleck) tells the story of Israel to his partners, "Pistol" Pete Deeks (Peter Berg) and Hollis Elmore (Martin Henderson) and prepares them to bring Israel back for jumping his bail. Hitwomen Sharice Watters (Taraji P. Henson) and Georgia Sykes (Alicia Keys) are hired by Padiche (David Proval) to kill Israel. Torture expert and mercenary Pasquale Acosta (Nestor Carbonell), the psychotic neo-Nazi Tremor Brothers (Chris Pine, Kevin Durand and Maury Sterling) and deadly master of disguise Lazlo Soot (Tommy Flanagan) also join in the hunt for Israel.
While at the Nomad Hotel and Casino in Lake Tahoe with his bodyguards Ivy (Common), Hugo (Joel Edgerton) and Beanie (Christopher Holley), Buddy Israel is living a life of prostitutes and cocaine, protected by the Nomad's own armed security. Carruthers and Messner are at a bar in Vegas where they are talking about Primo Sparazza and joking about Israel's problems. At the same time, they are unaware that the hitmen and bounty hunters are descending on the hotel, each intent on collecting Israel. Pasquale Acosta disguises himself as an FBI agent and asks to speak with the Nomad security supervisor. Georgia Sykes plans to pose as one of Israel's prostitutes and kill him when she is let inside the penthouse while Sharice Watters covers her with a 50 cal. M107 Long Range Sniper Rifle at the hotel across the street. Jack Dupree explains his plan to Deeks and Elmore to sneak into the Nomad using Nomad security uniforms while at a rest stop overlooking Lake Tahoe. Dupree's plan is cut short when the Tremor Brothers looking for another car happen upon them and gun Dupree, Deeks and Elmore down. After discovering the bail bond paperwork in Dupree's pocket, the Tremors dump the three into the lake and, recognizing the usefulness of Dupree's Nomad security uniforms, take the uniforms.
Lazlo Soot has already gotten inside the basement of the Nomad, killing several janitors and Israel's butler. Soot has planned to replace the butler to get close to Israel to make the hit, but as he tries to mimic the butler's voice, Hugo comes to the door. Soot kills Hugo and decides to disguise himself as Hugo, rather than the butler. The news of the death of Dupree travels fast and Messner is ordered to go to the murder scene to examine the bodies while Carruthers goes to the hotel to take Israel into custody. Acosta has talked to the head of Nomad Security (Matthew Fox) who claims the penthouse level is under construction, confirming Acosta's suspicions as to where Israel is hiding. Acosta kills the head of Security and takes his uniform. Meanwhile in one of the Nomad's hotel hallways, Sykes waits by the elevator. In the penthouse, Mecklen tells Buddy on the phone that Locke wants him to sell out everybody to the FBI. Desperate to save his own skin, he agrees. Ivy has overheard the entire conversation with Mecklin and prepares to confront Israel over it.
Hollis emerges from Lake Tahoe deeply sick with three missing fingers. After wandering through the woods half dead, he finds an old remote cabin inhabited by an ADHD-afflicted boy and his grandmother. They take him in to treat his wounds, although their strange behavior bewilders him, mostly due to the fact that the troubled boy sees him as his nemesis. He begins looking through their things and finds the grandmother's late husband's gun and tells her he'll borrow it.
Carruthers arrives at the hotel and asks for a guard to take him upstairs to the penthouse. He is pointed in the direction of Acosta in disguise and the two head upstairs together. While in the elevator Carruthers begins to suspect the guard is not who he claims to be. Once the tension grows, the two draw on each other with Carruthers being stabbed before the two engage in a gunfight in an elevator with predictable results. Lazlo Soot arrives upstairs disguised as Hugo and murders Beanie. Ivy confronts Israel about the phone call with Mecklen. After denying it, Israel admits his betrayal and claims he did it because he is simply more important than his friends are to the FBI. Ivy prepares to kill him for giving up his friends, only to be thwarted when Buddy flicks a card, cutting his eye. While he starts firing blindly, Soot and Israel take cover and the security team breaks in to stop Ivy, who is blamed for Beanie's death and restrained. Israel breaks down while Soot starts unpacking surgical tools unnoticed. Outside of the room, the guards find the elevators unresponsive and begin to worry.
In Los Angeles, Locke is given an aged memo. After reading the memo Locke backs out on Israel's deal and orders no one to inform Messner or Carruthers. Messner arrives at the hotel with other agents. After he is told that there is a man claiming to be an FBI agent, Messner begins searching for Carruthers. The Tremors, who are successful in their attempt to enter the Nomad with Dupree's uniforms, find themselves stuck in the elevators when they were locked down by Messner. The Tremors use a mobile generator to jump start their elevator to reach the penthouse. Upstairs, Georgia disagrees with Sharice's idea to leave since things seem to be getting too dangerous, having noticed the FBI presence. Georgia opens the elevator doors to find the unconscious and dying Carruthers and Acosta. She checks their pockets and finds that they are both FBI agents, to which Sharice says that one of them must be Lazlo Soot (whom they were warned of earlier). Since no one knows what he looks like, Georgia is in a dilemma, planning to kill whichever she thinks is the fake. Messner hears her over Carruthers' earpiece and sets up a position around her elevator.
In the penthouse, smoke comes from the elevator and Nomad security draws their guns. Soon the doors open and the Tremors rush out screaming, armed with an arsenal of weapons. As the Tremors begin to eliminate Nomad security, Mecklin informs Israel that the deal is off and Israel spirals down into a suicide attempt, but passes out from a heart attack before he can pull the trigger.
Downstairs, Sykes tells Watters that she is trapped in the elevator with the FBI waiting outside. Watters responds by firing on Messner and the agents, who start firing rapidly out of the windows. After Sykes and Messner exchange fire, Pasquale Acosta shoots her and is in turn shot three more times by the now conscious Carruthers before he can kill her. Sykes loses contact with Watters now that her radio was shot and Messner becomes distraught when Carruthers dies. Watters is convinced due to the lack of response from Sykes that she is dead. Enraged by the loss of her partner, she continues to fire on the FBI team. Sykes manages to get away in the elevator and heads upstairs where the Tremors have eliminated the entire Nomad security team. Ivy grabs a gun, killing both Lester and Jeeves Tremor, with Darwin Tremor remaining. Once Sykes arrives, she finds Darwin getting ready to kill Ivy with a machete. She draws her gun on Darwin and collapses in Ivy's arms, letting Darwin escape. Ivy and Sykes make their escape down the stairwell as Locke and other agents arrive.
Darwin escapes the Nomad posing as an FBI agent, having changed clothes with a dead or injured FBI agent in the elevator. The FBI arrives in the penthouse and interrupts Soot from proceeding with his plans on Israel. In the stairwell, Ivy and Sykes begin to grow attracted to each other, but the scarred Messner arrives and engages in a standoff with Sykes and Ivy. After she tells him that she didn't kill Carruthers or wanted to kill anyone else, he lets them go. Messner reaches the penthouse and asks Locke to explain what happened, but is interrupted by Soot who wounds a guard and quickly flees, disguised as the butler. Ivy carries Sykes outside, the living Acosta is carried out on a stretcher and Soot leaves disguised as a security guard. Watters sees Sykes alive, but is corned by FBI agents and is presumably killed. Meanwhile, Darwin is robbed of his car and shot to death in the parking lot by a waiting Hollis.
Messner arrives at the hospital where the now comatose Israel was taken and finds Locke. Messner puts a gun to Locke's back and orders him to tell why they were not informed to leave the mission when the agency backed out on Israel's deal. Locke leads Messner into a hospital room where Israel and Primo Sparazza are inside, comatose and bed to bed. It is revealed that they are father and son. Sparazza had had an affair with a Vegas showgirl in the sixties who gave birth to Israel. Messner is told that Sparazza wanting Israel's heart was not for a vendetta but for a transplant, which the FBI is setting up. The Swede is actually a head of cardiology who will make the transplant. The real contract was put out for Soot, who was hired to control the situation so they could bring out Israel safely. Messner doesn't understand why they would kill Israel to keep Sparazza alive though. To which Locke gives Messner the memo he received earlier.
It revealed that FBI agent Freeman Heller, after heavy plastic surgery, went undercover to infiltrate the mob using the name Primo Sparazza in the 40's. The FBI then faked Freeman Heller's death, saying Primo Sparazza had killed him. When the FBI believed Heller had gone rogue, and had actually switched sides to the mob, the FBI sent someone to kill him. Heller survived the assassination attempt and enraged that he was betrayed by the FBI when he had in fact not turned continued to live his life as Primo Sparazza (where he later had a child - Buddy Israel - with a showgirl). Primo Sparazza's previous identity as FBI agent Freeman Heller is buried in a FBI coverup.
Now, Heller/Sparazza has made a new deal with the FBI: Israel's heart for all of information he has on the Mafia. Messner doesn't care, as he is furious over Carruthers and the other deaths and believes that even if they saved Sparazza, his info may not be valid. Locke threatens to fire him after an outburst, but instead orders him to forget about the mission and leave. Messner agrees and Locke leaves the room. Messner stands for a moment before he tearfully walks into Israel and Sparazza's room. He locks the door behind him and takes a seat in between the beds. He proceeds to pull the plugs on their life support systems, and quietly lays down his gun, ammo and badge.
Seconds later, Locke, the Swede and many of the agents are desperately trying to break in and stop him. Messner continues to sit in disbelief as Buddy Israel and Primo Sparazza die. (WIKIPEDIA)
