3.0 out of 5 stars Violent people and guns---, July 23, 2005
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Shooters (DVD)
Shooters is in the genre including John Woo's City On Fire (1987), which Tarantino borrowed for Reservoir Dogs (1992). Very violent, with drugs, guns and violence the stars.

While it does not have the balletic grace of Woo's slow-motion shooting scenes, nor a star with the charisma of Chow Yun Fat behind the gun, it is a worthy entry into the genre. The cast acquit themselves well in mostly underwritten roles. Louis Dempsey is fine as recently released from prison Gilly, who is the voice telling the story. His friend(?) J is annoying, but Gerard Butler does a crazed violent and vain gun dealer well.

The gritty streets, sleazy bars and places these underworld people frequent is shown with the contrast to the home J and his wife and child have but he is already among the living dead, as the narrator says. These people walk streets with the rest of us, but their world can turn violent and deadly in a second.

Not great, but I give it a solid 7/10.
