It's loud and dumb and irritating and forgettable.
Gun Shy somehow manages to come across as being both screechingly over-the-top and desperately, painfully dull at the same time.
Random moments are not nearly enough to recommend this witless and graceless farce.
... witless dialogue and a plot that has no idea where it's going or why - and certainly isn't capable of making us want to go with it.
The biggest problem for "Gun Shy" isn't its ridiculous premise or its frequently silly tone; it's that it doesn't fully commit to either.
Gun Shy is unlikely to leave much of an impression, even on those who've followed Banderas's interestingly hit-and-miss career.
This lackluster comic thriller never matches the over-the-top enthusiasm of its star.
There's desperation for laughs, and then there's the wild, frantic grasping of Gun Shy.
Antonio Banderas hams it up in this dumber than dumb action-comedy that always reaches for the lowest hanging fruit for laughs.
Banderas is solid, and this isn't exactly the kind of movie you'll see 47 clones of every year year, so props, but Gun Shy is not something I ever want to revisit.
