Wow. Shoot 'Em Up is exactly what it claims to be. An action movie.
Balls to the wall, no holds barred, but nothing more. And that's
exactly what you get. Don't go expecting high art...SEU doesn't take
itself seriously enough for that. But that's exactly what makes it
work. It KNOWS it's over the top, and doesn't try to hide it. Clive
Owen's Smith character is the Bugs Bunny to Paul Giamatti's Hurtz Elmer
Fudd. The film takes the best cartoon elements, makes them flesh, and
still kicks in that over the top craziness. Bad puns that are so bad
they're good, action sequences that there just for the sake of having
an action sequence, and the wildest sex scene's amazing. It's
the funniest, coolest, most amazing mix of stunts, bad one liners and
paper think plot lines.

You get everything you expect from Shoot 'Em Up...and it's all great.
