Synopsis


Shoot 'Em Up
Clive Owen stars in this gritty, over the top action thriller as Mr. Smith, a gun-toting badass with a hair trigger and an unknown past. He's far from a doctor and farther from a parent, but when he unwittingly discovers an innocent woman delivering a baby right in the middle of a gunfight, Smith enters the fray to save her and though the woman expires, he is the one left in care of the orphaned child. He thinks that the killers were after the woman, but soon he realizes that they had a far more unlikely target: the baby. Smith's regular company is a seedy underworld full of unsavory characters, so he takes the child to the closest thing he knows to a mother: a sultry prostitute played by Monica Bellucci, who specializes in clientele with a mommy fetish. Teamed with his hot but unlikely partner, Smith unloads barrel after barrel to protect the mysterious baby from Mr. Hertz, a ruthless criminal mastermind played by Paul Giamatti. Smith plans to figure out why Hertz and his thugs are after the baby, but if he can't uncover the truth, he'll settle for leaving them all dead in the process. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

    This movie is a blast! Do not be swayed by all the negative reviews! Many people do not realize this movie is a parody of action movies, but it does it with a straight face! Amazing action scenes, non stop pace, and yes it is unbelievable, and ridiculous, over the top but, that is part of the fun that makes Shoot Em' Up such a fantastic wild ride. This was the most fun I have had at the movies in a long time. If you are a John Woo fan, you will love this. If you like nonstop action film, this will blow you away. If you like to analyze the plausibility of things, like the physics of carrots to the human head (watch the movie to understand) than maybe let this one slide. To those who get this movie, and love it like I do spread the joy. Shoot Em' Up rocks!!!!!

    Lots of action

    If you like the action from the Transporter types of movies, you'll probably like this movie as well. Weak plot, but the action starts in the first few minutes and pretty much keeps it up for the whole movie. It appear it was written as a tongue-in-cheek tribute to those types of movies. The action is good and violent, and 'fun' in how unbelievable it is.

    Clive Owen does a GREAT job in Shoot Em UP... Paul Giamatti (sp) is hilarious. I went to this movie totally unaware of what it was about. For the first 20 minutes (total action, bullets flying, stunts, blood, etc etc), I was completely dumbfounded why anyone would make a movie with non-stop gun violence, killing in strange ways (carrot through the head trick)...but it soon became obvious that it was all intended to be ridiculous in its violence. I love action movies anyway, but this one was really extraordinary combining humor and self-mocking... I can't think of the perfect things to say here - but if you are uptight with no sense of humor, please save your money. If you have an open mind and see the intended humor...then I wholeheartedly recommend this movie.

    For the dark humor audience

    A baby that likes heavy metal; a high body count; cheesy lines, and vengence against idiotic drivers all in the same movie? You bet! Yes, it's far from a masterpiece, but it is not serious at all and should not be taken as so. It's good for what it is if you have a dark sense of humor.
