Lester Tremor says that he looks "like that dude, the one in Platoon (1986), he's in Sniper (1993)". That "dude" is Tom Berenger, who plays Walter Weed in this film. See more »
When Kaitlyn Tremor places the explosive device in the fuse/disconnect box, the disconnect handle is clearly in the off position. Blowing up this box would have no effect vs. in a later scene when the device explodes and power to the bunker goes out. See more »

Different director, different actors, different result ...
I really, really liked Smokin Aces, and i was excited to go watch this sequel, featuring my favorite UK actor Vinnie Jones, who always gives violent movies this little extra just be his appearance.
As so often with sequels, this one just doesn't cut it - it is nowhere near as well-acted, intense and spectacular as the original.
The story features some of the assassins from part 1, but they have been cramped into the plot in an awkward way this time - without giving away too much, it's rather unbelievable. Their methods seem dull after watching part 1, and the addition of the new assassins doesn't make up for that at all.
Bad, b-movie style acting and extremely bad CGI (explosions!) take up the remaining 1.5 hours, until the foreseeable-from-minute-1 plot-twist kicks in.
Loads of plot holes, bad dialogs and unexplained sudden character-developments makes me rate this 3/10 unfortunately.
TLDR: Don't bother, grab it once its out on DVD
