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

Product Description
A gritty, fast-paced action thriller, Shoot Em Up kicks into high gear with a memorable opening scene and never relents. Clive Owen stars as Mr. Smith, a mysterious loner who teams up with an unlikely ally (Monica Belluci) to protect a newborn baby from a determined criminal (Paul Giamatti) who hunts them throughout the bowels of the city.
Running Time: 86 min.

Please read this message. I keep posting the same advice/links. I've changed the merchant from Teco Entertainment to and Instore as this is only available at this price instore rather than through Tesco Ent..

Good price. I found this movie very fun and watchable. A bit like Crank (though it shames me to say it!). A good 90 minute break for your brain.
awesome film. switch off brain...a real bloke film
Great film
carrot bit = pmsl
I'm still trying to figure out if this film is genius or utterly bonkers...or both!
Requires watching with tongue firmly in your cheek, i think its a pish take on the all action hero type of film.
Well worth a viewing but as others have said .. switch off your brain
A great soundtrack as well :thumbsup:
Great film. Have this on blu-ray. Very enjoyable to watch and a steal at this price.
