A cartoony action movie that features a variety of elaborate, stylized, and outrageous action sequences, but little else in the way of characters or themes. It's watchable and sometimes entertaining, but, ultimately, leaves you with an empty feeling and the action is too far-fetched to be believable.

Not a good movie by any means but at least it knows what it is. It is fun and is for true action fans only. A ton of B.S. and a fast paced environment make this movie ok. Nothing new here though.

Action: 3 / 3, Comedy: 0.5 / 2, Good vs Evil: 1 / 1, Love/Sex: 1 / 1, Special Effects: 1 / 1, Plot: 0 / 1, Music: 0 / 1 = 65% or 6.5 / 10, which is 2 / 4 stars. A pure tribute to action sequences so turn off the brain and enjoy the rollercoaster!

"Shoot 'Em Up" by Yojimbo

Clive Owen is minding his own business when a pregnant woman stumbles by pursued by gun-toting villains. Feeling obliged to help, he ends up the target of an army of black-clad bad guys, complete with newborn baby and hooker with a heart in tow. If Raising Arizona had been written by Jackie Chan and directed by John Woo, this film would've been the result! Shoot 'em up does exactly what is says on the tin; it's really nothing more than a collection of nicely choreographed set-pieces and painful one liners. To be honest, it's the kind of film where if one single part of it had been misjudged, the whole thing would've fallen apart. For example, if super-cool Clive Owen hadn't been cast as Mr. Smith and we'd had Jason Statham instead, it probably would've reeked. But as it is, it's just the ...

Shoot 'Em Up (2007)

"Is this guy really this good, or do we just suck?"

Clive Owen is awesome as Mr. Smith, a carrot crunching man who takes it upon himself to protect a baby from a ruthless assassin (Paul Giammati) and his infinite number of henchmen after he prevents a gunman from murdering a woman on the verge of giving birth and finds himself holding the baby when the mother is killed in the crossfire. What ensues is a glorious gun-fest and several shoot outs between Smith and various hit men hell bent on snuffing the child out. The baby is the offspring of the last surviving of three mothers impregnated to give birth to children so that they can donate their bone marrow to a seriously ill presidential candidate. Monica Bellucci is the lactating prostitude whom Owen bribes into assisting with the safe...

Shoot 'Em Up review

The movie felt like a huge video game. The sound track for the film is alright, some lines funny, action scenes were cool and the cast did a decent job. Like so many, the main concern was the believability of each scene. The concept was deep, unfortunately the scenes became buffoonish. Clive Owen was better in The International. If you like action with guns blazing with not much story then this is for you. Shooter was definitely better. The Professional is another film I highly recommend. ...
