We gave it a B

A cheerfully disposable gangland freak-show thrill ride. When a Vegas magician (Jeremy Piven) agrees to rat out his Mob connections, he’s descended on by assassins who keep upping the ante on sociopathic irreverence. You can’t take this mash-up of GoodFellas, Ocean’s Eleven, and a Rob Zombie horror flick seriously, but it’s as lively as it is debased.
