Becky and I went to see Shoot ‘Em Up for a sneak preview last week at the AMC theaters in Littleton, Colorado. The Yahoo website at Shoot ‘Em Up describes the movie as follows:
Mr. Smith, the angriest, most hardboiled man in the world, finds himself entrusted to protect the most innocent thing of all–a newborn child. When Smith delivers the baby in the middle of a gunfight, he soon discovers that the infant is the target of a shadowy force that has sent a team of mysterious and endless assailants, led by Hertz, to erase all traces of the baby. Amid a hail of bullets and…
Shoot ‘Em Up is much worse than the description of this movie above. It’s rated R for pervasive strong bloody violence, sexuality and some language. That’s all this movie is. There is absolutely nothing good about this film. Becky left and I agonized through it. I thought it would be a pretty decent action flick since it stars Clive Owen, Paul Giamatti, and Monica Bellucci, but it was stupid and totally sick.
If you want to watch Clive Owen and Paul Giamatti run around brutally killing people for an hour and thirty-three minutes non-stop then this movie is for you. He’s invincible of course until the very end of the film where he’s still a comic book character. 3:10 to Yuma is violent, but it at least has some sensibility to it, a story and deals with the issue of right and wrong where there is no right or wrong in this movie, just kill or be killed. It sucked.
This movie isn’t even a good rental. It’s definitely on our worst list for the year and possibly one of the most ridiculous films we’ve ever paid money for. I should have left with Becky.
