Shoot ‘Em Up

April 15, 2011

Smith: Eat your vegetables.

Late at nighttime, in an unnamed U.S. metropolis, an introverted man (Clive Owen) sits at a bus stop. A pregnant woman runs by, pursued by a man with a gun. With unwillingness, the man at the bus stop rescues her and assists with the baby’s delivery, while supplementary pursuer’s fire at them, as well as the gang’s particularly spiteful boss, an insightful man named Hertz (Paul Giamatti). Our hero, known only as Smith, determines to save the child and discover out why Hertz needs the baby dead. At a confined bordello, he tries to employ a lactating hooker to observe the child, but things rapidly go sky-high, and this rough and ready family is roughly immediately on the run.

Hertz: Guns don’t kill people, but they sure help!

This movie is seriously a truly enjoyable movie. It’s complete with action, sharp dialogue, and unforgettable lines. It is what it promises, a 90 minute action crammed romp. The wonderful Clive Owen stars as Mr. Smith, a man with a mission. Owen is ideal in this part, including everything you’d wish for in a movie akin to this (heck, he even kills an assassin with a carrot!). The story is unbelievably impractical and the whole thing is completely improbable, but I can assure that you will be entertained. Shoot ‘Em Up is a great case in point of a wonderful B-movie, or even a cult classic (watch out, The Evil Dead!). Many will be turned off by the content (bloody shootings, death), but a lot will love this. So if you are a fan of the ridiculous, then check out Shoot ‘Em Up!

Hertz: Do you know why a gun is better than a wife? You can put a silencer on a gun.
