Shoot 'Em Up Reviews

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.

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.

...it's certainly impossible to deny the effectiveness of the three central performances.

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.

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.

...arguably the best-directed movie of the year.

...an 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.

Uma versão idiota de Filhos da Esperança.

It's just gunfights strung together, without a whisper of coherence or meaning.
