About the Movie

A gritty, fast-paced action thriller, Shoot Em Up kicks into high gear with a memorable opening scene and never relents. Clive Owen stars as Mr. Smith, a mysterious loner who teams up with an unlikely ally (Monica Belluci) to protect a newborn baby from a determined criminal (Paul Giamatti) who hunts them throughout the bowels of the city.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: For mainstream audiences, its whiplash pacing, frenetic camera work and offhand manner toward blood spillage probably will be disturbing. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Mar 28, 2008

Fresh: It's just gunfights strung together, without a whisper of coherence or meaning. – Stephen Hunter, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: One can certainly be amused and entertained by writer-director Michael Davis's hyperbolic action frolics -- I was -- but not without feeling pretty low and stupid. – Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The most audacious, implausible, cheerfully offensive, hyperactive action picture I've seen since, oh, Sin City, which in comparison was a chamber drama. – Roger Ebert, Denver Post, Jun 24, 2010

Well crafted, funny, extremely violent, but entertaining film

Come on, people, when you review a film try to step outside of your narrow scope of preference to give artist's the respect they deserve. This film is fantastic. Yes, it's very violent in a video game sort of way, but some of the gun fights are spectacular and suspenseful. Yes, sometimes it seems a bit "cute" for a film in this genre, but Clive Owen and Paul Giamatti take their roles very seriously and have great authenticity in the characters. Monica Bellucci is always lovely to look at and listen too, but she's also a great actress as well.
Visually, this film is excellently crafted and gives you a fantastic, intensely crazy ride up to the very end. OK, so we come to expect allot as the film world continues to do blockbuster after blockbuster, but unless you are a Coppola, Scorsese or a Cameron, show some respect for the people to have the confidence to put their vision on film and hire expert crafters to create such an entertaining visual feast.

Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd taken to the next level

Is this a sophisticated action film that expands the genre and creates a commentary on our lives today? No.
This is an over the top action film that has its roots in our Warner Brothers love of Bugs Bunny tricking Elmer Fudd. The action scenes are impossible and the violence is over the top and I would not change a thing about it.
May we see Mr. Smith again!

Non Stop Fun

I'm a big Clive Owen fan, and this does not disappoint. Don't know what jakefilm's problem is, but if you liked I'll Sleep When I'm Dead, or anything similar, you'll enjoy this. From a production standpoint, this is much better Even if you don't, nothing here merits the "worst movie ever made" nonsense. While this is no Children of Men, it does not disappoint.
