Product Description

Shoot 'Em Up (BD)

Amazon.com

Every action movie has a moment so over the top you have to laugh; Shoot 'Em Up consists of nothing but these moments. A carrot-eating, lone wolf kind of guy named Smith (Clive Owen, Children of Men, Inside Man) steps in to protect a pregnant woman from a gunman--and finds himself, with the aid of a lactating prostitute (Monica Belluci, The Matrix Revisited), defending the newborn child from a sleazy contract killer Mr. Hertz (Paul Giamatti, American Splendor, Sideways) and his army of thugs. That's pretty much the plot, but story is beside the point. Writer/director Michael Davis (Monster Man) has a keen sense of what matters in an action movie. The rapid-fire editing is scrupulously coherent; you always grasp what happened in every shoot-out, even if it flagrantly violates the laws of physics or basic plausibility. Explaining how Smith survives a four-story fall--even if that explanation is beyond ridiculous--demonstrates both a sense of wit and a winking respect for the audience's imagination. As a result, Shoot 'Em Up is ten times more entertaining than the likes of Transformers or Rush Hour 3, movies so self-satisfied with special effects or movie stars that they forgot to be fun. (Shoot 'Em Up's only weakness is a sliver of misogyny, the one action movie cliche that it's not clever enough to transcend.) --Bret Fetzer

Customer Reviews

Great movie, constant action.
J. MCARTHUR
If you are expecting a serious movie of any sort you will be sorely disappointed and likely end up hating it.
James Ferguson
I lost count of how bad guys were killed with carrots let alone bullets!

Format: DVD
Whoah! If you're looking for mindless action, THIS is the movie for you.
It's over the top, totally unbelievable, physically impossible, but absolutely brilliant all at the same time.

2 minute version:

Clive Owen eats a lot of carrots, and values his privacy. There are many things that he absolutely hates, and he comes into contact with most of these things when he unwillingly gets involved in a plot to kill a very pregnant young woman. Suddenly faced with a nanny job, he shoots his way out of the frying pan and into the fire, each scenario more draw-dropping-ly impossible than the last. Paul Giamatti plays an unlikely criminal mastermind and Monica Bellucci is under-utilized as the proverbial professional with a heart of gold except she's also got a chest of milk to go with it. Things get political, and hopelessly complicated, and of course there's lots and lots (and lots) of shooting, during any (and I do mean ANY) situation.

Good stuff:

1. Clive Owen
2. Clive Owen's one-liners
3. Clive Owen's stunts
4. The hilariously bad but breathtaking, yet impossible scenarios
5. Paul Giamatti's cell phone calls
6. The body count
7. Clive Owen's nude scene
8. Clive Owen

Bad stuff:

1. Carrots are DEFINITELY not good for some people
2. Not enough Bellucci
3. Plot (nuff said) but then again, we don't need no steenkin' plot

If you can forget that this movie professes to have a plot, you're in for a rollicking good (but extremely violent) time. Definitely a must-see if you're looking for mindless adult entertainment, and don't mind looking at Clive Owen.

Rated: 4.5 stars

Yes, this movie is completely over the top. That's the point !!!!!!!!!! The film is a caricature of action films. The action hero is named "Mr. Smith." The hooker has a heart of gold. The body count is enormous! They have a baby in a bulletproof vest!!! I have no idea how anyone could take this movie seriously. You aren't supposed to!!! If you love action movies, and have a good sense of humor, you will enjoy this movie. This movie is great fun. I laughed my *ss off! And Clive Owen is seriously hot!!! (and for the guys.... Monica Bellucci is beautiful.)

Format: DVD
SHOOT 'EM UP is well named: this is a whompingly good action movie that is as much parody of its genre as it is a good story. It never for a moment takes itself seriously and it is played by a strong cast of top-drawer actors having a terrific time. Writer/director Michael Davis has found his niche and let's hope there will be more dark comedies that are as much fun to watch as this one.

The story is negligible: lone man Smith (Clive Owen at his best) observes a pregnant woman in chased distress, delivers her baby, then finishes off the huge gang of bad guys who are in pursuit, taking the newborn boy to transient safety. Smith finds a lactating prostitute Donna (beautiful Monica Bellucci), takes her from her business of kinky sex and makes her the baby's surrogate mother. A smarmy gangster Hertz (Paul Giamatti in another career forming role), connected to an illicit arms manufacturer Hammerson (Stephen McHattie), is in pursuit of both Smith and the baby for reasons that are finally disclosed: the baby is part of a ring of potential bone marrow donors for an important Senator. The ending is, well, an ending. But it is the getting there that is all the fun.

The dialog is peppered with hilarious one-liners that have a real edge and the methods of the endless killings include several using the carrot that Smith keeps at hand as a weapon. The shootings are fast and impossible but actually hilarious in the choreography. Clive Owen plays the role straight, with a real gift for humor as well as action. Paul Giamatti is a sinister delight and able to match Owens one-liner for one-liner. Monica Bellucci makes her impossible role credible and as always is gorgeous to look at! This is a fast paced, finely written and acted parody - definitely deserving of the comic book title! Grady Harp, January 08

Almost every low review written about "Shoot 'Em UP" is from a person who COMPLETELY missed the point. Anyone who watches this movie needs to understand that this movie is a "S A T I R E" !!!!!!*

This is one of the funniest satires I have ever seen. Hands down.

"Shoot 'Em Up" does not have in depth characters, it IS SUPPOSED TO BE misogynistic, and if you try to take it seriously for one second..... you're going to hate it. Watch this film when you need a good laugh. The dialog is hysterical. Every scene from start to finish is completely "Over the Top", but still executed with big budget precision. The acting is absolutely dead on perfect. I think it was marketed very badly, and THAT'S why it did poorly at the box office.

Watch this movie when you need a good laugh, you won't regret it.

*(With appreciation to T. Lamar Terrell for correcting my original mis-classification of this film as a spoof)

While my title doesn't fully capture the true action panache this 86 minute rocketsled packs, it does provide you a quick snapshot of what you're in for; loads of guns, crazy stunts and just plain silly fun.

That is if hyperviolent action movies loaded with black humor are your cup of tea.

All other high-browed audiences only interested in CINEMA (conceited "sniff sniff" here), PLEASE, don't even bother. Your finger waving and holding-of-the-noses are beyond tired.

Judge this film the same way you would judge an R-rated piece of anime' - not for the kiddies or the easily ruffled.

That being said (and hopefully taken to heart), I can honestly say this was my greatest guilty pleasure at the theater in 2007. While I guess it does sort of fall into that "gun porn" slot, it's really a lot more clever and slapstick-ish (albeit in a sick way, lol) than one might be led to believe. Think "Crank", but with even better action pieces, music and much funnier.

Outstanding casting too - Owen, Giamatti and Bellucci were clearly having fun, and it shows.

I saw this in the theater, bought the soundtrack (score only, none of the rockin' tunes you hear sprinkled throughout the flick sadly - still good though) and today picked up the blu-ray and it only further crystallized my initial reaction - I truly and totally dig this movie.

And the blu-ray transfer is incredibly beautiful, both visually & sound-wise. But maybe wait until it comes down a bit in price? I dunno...perhaps rent it first before you plunk down 30 bucks to add it to your library.

Total shame this didn't do much better at the box office. I think it was unfairly judged by critical pinheads in the popular press under the wrong light and far too harshly.

Can't wait to see what this director does next.
