Plot Summary: Sleazy Las Vegas magician Buddy “Aces” Israel (Jeremy Piven) is a former member of one of the largest criminal organizations in the country. In exchange for safety provided by the FBI under the Witness Protection Program, he has just agreed to testify against his former employer, mob boss Primo Sparazza (Joseph Ruskin). When the news reaches Sparazza, he immediately offers up $1 million dollars to anyone that will bring him Buddy’s heart. As word spreads quickly, FBI director Stanley Locke (Andy Garcia) sends agents Richard Messner (Ryan Reynolds) and Donald Carruthers (Ray Liotta) to Lake Tahoe to secure the witness. At the same time, Buddy’s lawyers hire bail bondsman Jack Dupree (Ben Affleck) and ex-cops Hollis Elmore (Martin Henderson) and “Pistol” Pete Deeks (Peter Berg) to bring Buddy back to Vegas. With Sparazza’s specialist on the case and a series of shadowy assassins also after him, Buddy has quickly become the most wanted man in the country. His last night out in the Tahoe casinos is about to be rudely interrupted as all the parties converge in one chaotic gathering of people that either want to protect him or eradicate him by any means necessary.
