Shoot 'Em Up Reviews

Page 1 of 9
Ali Gray

Far from being a spoof on the genre, Shoot 'Em Up is an action movie with the flab removed - with no more than maybe ten minutes of exposition, you're left with a series of interconnecting money shots, each one more gooey than the last.

Tim Grierson

Merrily amoral, shamelessly watchable and outlandishly funny, Shoot 'Em Up is not for all tastes, but those with a dark sense of humor will have a ball.

Say what you will about Bugs Bunny, at least he never needed a backstory.

Clive Owen is ideally cast as the likeable loner (with a tragedy in his past, of course) whose self defence and killing efficiency is declared with deadpan delivery.

...painfully uncool one-liners, a flat performance from Clive Owen, a disgusting job by Paul Giamatti and a plot that reveals itself to be idiotic.

Shoot 'em Up dispenses with plot, character development and coherency, but it's a blast all the same.

...essentially just one long chase sequence that becomes much too monotonous much too soon.

Eye for Film

a sometimes hilarious, sometimes eye-goggling reductio ad absurdum of the action flick to its barest kinetic essentials - like one of those porn compilations of money shots, only in a different genre.

After about an hour, though, it all becomes a mind-numbing barrage.

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.

Top Critic IconTop Critic affectionate, often very funny Simpsons parody of its whole eponymous genre. It's a live-action McBane as co-directed by Quentin Tarantino and Chuck Jones.... Shoot 'Em Up is Hot Fuzz gone to the Dark Side.

In its essence it's nothing but a violent live action Bugs Bunny cartoon and I dug it.

The whole thing is supposed to be played for laughs, but it is too bloody, too brutal and too sadistic to be remotely amusing.

It is obvious that this is a movie where the filmmakers knew exactly what they were doing, which is why I believe this movie will live on much longer than its box office receipts indicate.

Forget style over substance; the style is the substance here, and it's hard to complain when it's all, quite simply, so much damn fun.

The cast alone makes it worth seeing this semi-serious satire of cowboy diplomacy action flicks.
