Format: DVD
To be honest, for the first 10 minutes of this film, you will probably be laughing at the ridiculousness. You are catapulted straight into the action without any introduction of characters, plot or surroundings. This film is violent, sure, but as I always say, it's how a movie is done that makes the difference. Shoot 'Em Up proceeds from one dazzlingly outrageous scene to another with unflagging confidence, tons of panache, brilliantly warped humor and blazing originality, sweeping you and many viewers along.

The casting is genius as well, beginning with Clive Owen, who's dead-on here, with his ever-present carrot in hand, rescuing the (adorable) baby, getting the girl, killing the bad guys (who just keep coming like deranged vampire replicants), even solving The Mystery from the most obscure of clues, all while complaining about everything he hates.

And speaking of the great Paul Giamatti, he's in monumentally fine form here as Hertz, the self-described brilliant leader of the gunmen. Squallid and seedy beyond all comprehension, you just know he's having a blast (pun intended) with this part. After proving in his last few outings that he can carry a film and play anything, he gets to bask hardily in full venal mode, sneering, scowling and torturing his way into our hearts as only Giamatti can.

The film is shot in stark, sharp tones, making it look like a comic book come to life more than any film I've ever seen, while still using real actors. And there are sequences here that you have NOT witnessed before, speaking of that originality I mentioned earlier. The one which stood out most to me is the one where Clive Owen and Monica Bellucci (also perfect) are making love and the baddies bust in. In most films, this would pre-empt the love-making. In Shoot 'Em Up, they continue the act, which actually culminates while the bullets are flying. Worked for me.

Did you ever dream being able to run inconsiderate drivers who are too lazy to signal their turns or lane changes off the road and onto the sidewalk? How about spiral-diving amongst a swarm of black-clad enemies and picking them out one by one? How about doing the same while skydiving? Or shooting bullets from your bare hand?

This is an action movie that manages to both make fun of the action genre hyperboles and, at the same time, deliver a string of explosive action sequences. Sure, the plot is not the most deep but it far from paper-thin and, anyway, these are 86min of your life you will be glad you spent having fun.

The Academy gave ...THE HURT LOCKER an Oscar and they passed over this movie!!? SHOOT 'EM UP deserves an Oscar for just two unforgettable scenes: the packaging-line shootout in Mr Smith's lair and the unique shootout/sex ballet. Now, throw in Paul Giammati's smartass one-liners and you have yourself a movie which is great fun to watch.

Giammati may try his hardest to be the usual scene-stealer yet Clive Owen is the one who really delivers this movie. I am sure when they watched this, the producers of the James Bond franchise were kicking themselves for going with Daniel Craig.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Just in case anybody is unaware, the extremely high body count and the ridiculous methods of obtaining it, are all fully intentional. This is a deliberately over-the-top film that delivers solid entertainment for those days when your wife's Jane Austen collection needs a good kick in the pants. Clive Owen is obviously enjoying his role as the smooth, carrot-wielding vigilante, performing many scenes with a baby tucked under his arm. Monica Bellucci is as succulent as ever, having lost nothing since making "Malena". Paul Giamatti bristles as the vexed baddie, turning in one of his best performances since "Sideways".

As bullets fly in scenes that trump each previous one for fiendishly clever outrageousness, one can only imagine the film makers' glee as they produced this brainless yet exceedingly clever piece of entertainment. Put this one next to "Bloodsport" on your guilty pleasure shelf.

Wow this is quite the action movie. One of the most outrageously violent movies I've ever seen. It's got the inventive action violence of the best hong kong action films. It's about a man (played by Clive Owen) who unwittingly becomes involved in the middle of a baby DNA ploy by a U.S senator. Him and a prostitute (Monica Belluci) are trying to save the life of a baby, that a bunch of thugs are trying to kill. This requires a huge suspension of disbelief, but if you like high-octane actioners, you can't go wrong with "Shoot em' up".

It's big, it's loud, it's funny, it's weird.

Not big as in "$100 million budget", but big in its ambitions and it does deliver on that front (big action from beginning to end).

Not loud as in "Michael Bay flicks" but loud as in intense gunplay, intense action, intense humor, intense movie.

Not funny as in "dumb" but funny as in dialogs are funny, the humor is very important even though it's pretty dark.

Not weird as in "David Lynch weird" but weird for some of the characters' attitudes and acts, which sometimes make it even funnier.

You owe it to yourself to buy or at least give this movie a try... it's one of my very big surprises of 2007 :D
