Overview

For an action film, boasting a body count higher than its IQ isn't always a bad thing. In director and screenwriter Michael Davis's stylish SHOOT ‘EM UP, inventive set pieces, and tongue-in-cheek humor make for fun, fast entertainment. Clive Owen (CHILDREN OF MEN) plays Smith, a man who is minding his own business and chomping on carrots when he is forced to try to save a pregnant woman in trouble. After she is killed, he takes charge, keeping her newborn child safe from a snarling villain (Paul Giamatti, THE ILLUSIONIST). Aided by a prostitute (Monica Belluci, THE BROTHERS GRIMM), Smith shoots his way through the big city as he cradles the baby in his arms.

Davis hails from the same school of thought as fellow directors Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. Like those filmmakers, Davis doesn't take the medium too seriously, as he pays homage to action classics and peppers the film with playful dialogue and set pieces. This film might not be the standard choice for an Oscar-nominated actor such as Giamatti, but he's clearly enjoying his role as the bad guy, and it's just as much fun for the audience. With SHOOT ‘EM UP, Davis has crafted a movie full of jaw-dropping action sequences sure to please fans of high-energy films from directors such as John Woo.

Editorial Reviews

Entertainment Weekly 09-14-2007 "Paul Giamatti, as the villain, has just the right feral sadistic sweatiness, and he does great..." -- Grade: B+
Sight and Sound 11-01-2007 "[T]he best thing about the fast-edited, grittily designed SHOOT 'EM UP is probably Paul Giammati as bad guy Hertz....His lipsmacking, beard-stroking, spectacle-winking, indomitable mania is one of the great pleasures of the film..."
Rolling Stone 09-20-2007 3 stars out of 5 -- "See SHOOT 'EM UP for the affectionate sendup it is, and you won't be able to wipe the grin off your face."

Pure Andrenaline

If you are looking for the Green Mile or Shawshank Redemption, stop reading now. This movie is not one of those films likely to go down as one of the top 10 films of all time. If, however, you are looking for a non-stop, over-the-top killing spree then this is the movie for you. I personally lost track of the number of bad guys that Clive Owen kills, and most remarkably is the methods of his mayham. And at 9.99 it is an absolute bargin. Two thumbs way up
