Frequently Bought Together
Action movie starring Clive Owen as Smith, a down-and-out squatter with both an extensive military background and a fondness for carrots, who wants nothing more than to be left alone. Smith finds himself embroiled in a complex political conspiracy once he aids a pregnant woman who is being chased by a hitman. He takes the baby and goes on the run with a prostitute (Monica Bellucci). The unlikely family is trailed by the intelligent and ruthless Hertz (Paul Giamatti) and his army of thugs.
Relax, switch your brain off, stick your tongue in cheek and settle down. If you can do all of these things, then Shoot Em Up is one of the most downright fun movies youre likely to have seen in some time. Just make sure youve adhered to the aforementioned checklist to the letter first.
Shamelessly over the top, and boasting a carnival of action sequences that each seemingly try to out do the other, the core of Shoot Em Up is Paul Giamatti (Sideways) and Clive Owen (The Inside Man) pitted against each other. In the middle is some nonsense over saving a newborn child, and Monica Bellucis call girl gets put into the mix too.
That said, all plot is thrown out of the window at every opportunity in favour of more action, upping the body count and heck, why not? a bit more action. And you know what? Shoot Em Up works, and it does so because everyone is in on it. This is no postmodern pretentious reworking: this is a fun, stylish action movie, and proud of it. It boasts a trimmed-to-the-wire running time, some outrageous sequences, a few bum notes but a whole lot of energy. And while it is, all considered, an excitable action movie and nothing more, Shoot Em Up is also uproarious entertainment, and the kind of film that Friday night was invented for. --Jon Foster

BUT THAT'S THE POINT =P
If you try and analyse this in the same way you would other films it is awful.
The idea of the film is just fun! If you take it seriously you will not enjoy it, and tbh i think that's a good thing.
These days films are too cheesy naturally or are far to pretentious to actually be enjoyed properly anymore.
Not that a little pretentiousness or cheese hurt anyone, but its nice to have a change from people who try too hard and those who dont try at all.
I love analysing films books and anything else that's flung my way but films like this and Crank are just made for a laugh.
Please will people stop saying this is just garbage, because it plainly isn't. Its just not a serious film or an out and out comedy... its just fun =D
I would recommend this to anyone who is capable of watching a film without taking it seriously, and to anyone who enjoyed this I would recommend Crank!!!
It was my first blu ray ever bought, and it definitely impressed me in HD, due to the explosive photography, sound, editing and camera movements.

Shoot 'Em Up.
You'll hit the sack feeling like a fighter jet made out of Biceps!
Very Good, very Silly, Total garbage. Switch off Brain and enjoy!
The original theatrical presentation was 2.39.1 the small change does not affect the viewing of this rocking story which has it's tongue heavily in it's cheek.
This Blu-ray presentation is 86 minutes long which is the same as the version from the States , there are only subtitles in English for the hard of hearing which is pretty short-signed from the film company, the bonus features are the same as the DVD which are as follows Deleted/Alternate Scenes, Commentary by the director, Ballet of Bullets - Making of Documentary Animatics and the Theatrical trailer a great disc for action lovers.
Owen seems to have spent half his Hollywood career playing nursemaid in films like Children of Men and King Arthur, but for once he's cast in a part that plays to his limited strengths and doesn't make the kind of emotional demands that have always been beyond him. It helps that his acting has improved over the years, though rather like the similarly wooden Rachel Ward he seems to have finally started getting the whole acting thing right after paying audiences have lost what fleeting interest they had in him. A shame, because he does a nice line in dry humor here as he storms through increasingly outlandish setpieces, a gunfight while having sex and a mid-air shootout with machine-gun firing parachutists among them, all of which are delivered with panache and some originality by writer-director Michael Davis.Read more ›
