Shoot 'Em Up
Just another family man making a living.
A man named Mr. Smith delivers a woman's baby during a shootout, and is then called upon to protect the newborn from the army of gunmen.
Sublime videogame surrealism laced with tongue in cheek taking-the-pissness covered in nubile Belluccicana and finished with equal measures of gun porn and carrots.
And Paul fucking Giamatti.
"Fuck you, you fucking fuckers".
Sometimes you have to just sit back and admire a film that continually pushes the boundaries both on an action front and on a blackly comedic level. Michael Davis's film deftly does both as from the moment Clive Owen cracks his first one-liner and then swiftly dispatches a henchman with a carrot, you know this isn't going to be your average action film.
Shoot 'Em Up never lets up for a second. From the opening sequence that introduces Owen's good Samaritan attempting to rescue a pregnant woman from a gunman to a fitting end which sees yet more carrots involved, this chase movie doesn't do things by half. It has more action than a Jason…
That first appearance of a Star Destroyer in Star Wars.
That shower scene in Psycho.
That airport conversation in Casablanca.
That bit where that fella from Coupling shoves a fucking carrot in a mans eye!
The wonder of film.
If you want to turn your brain off and be completely entertained for 86 minutes, Shoot 'Em Up is probably one of the best possible things to do it with. So ridiculous, so over-the-top, so fucked-up... yet so much fun. Don't even bother if you're not into action flicks of this nature.
I rather enjoy it for what it is. Plus, any movie that has a Nirvana song play within it's first two minutes is off to a good start in my book. Especially if it's something fast-paced like "Breed" during a shootout ... perfect.
An extreme, manic to the max, over the top, pulpy action film that had no intention of being anything else and it is awesome because of it!
Like Roger Ebert said: "I may disapprove of a movie for going too far, and yet have a sneaky regard for a movie that goes much, much farther than merely too far."
Maybe I just don't get it, but I hated this film. Another thing I don't understand is why everybody seems to hate modern Robert Rodriguez and love Shoot 'Em Up—the style and the purpose are basically the same, but Rodriguez achieves what he wants in a much better & fun way as he makes his films look incomparably cheap. While films like Machete and its sequel are purposely ridiculous and exaggerated, they have something that makes them look silly & stupid in a good way—Michael Davis' Shoot 'Em Up is just too stupid, yet too serious for its own good.
Nothing works as it should in this disastrous action film—the writing is abhorrent and the execution is weak because I just don't…
Clive Owen and Paul Giamatti's underrated masterpiece.
fun watch, but alot corny shit in this movie.
Clive Owen killing people with carrots.
Paul Giamatti as a really entertaining villain.
A Man With No Name Eastwood reference line that made me clap.
Fucking.. Killing people.. With carrots..
WTF man 😂
And here I thought there weren't any more action films that fall in line with the Crank movies in levels of insanity, while it's not as rediculous and unhinged as the Crank films it does have a weird mix of tones, crazy humor & one liners, insane action scenes(CARROT KILLS & even a "Sex-Action scene), some serious moments with bits of realism, then insanity occurs once more. VERY interesting movie that I didn't expect to like this much. At first I didn't think I'd like it but I really ended up liking it and wanting to see more of this character Clive Owen portrayed.
Also, Really good directing and some interesting shots.
Better film than I expected.
Why does Clive Owen always have to protect babies?
This just didn't do much for me. I love the idea of parodying stupid action movies. I enjoyed Crank because it was damn funny. And Hot Fuzz was brilliant. But Shoot 'em Up just wasn't that funny. There were a couple occasions that made me laugh, but not nearly enough. I "got" it. I just didn't find myself laughing very much. And when the humor doesn't work in a shallow movie like this, there's really nothing left to like about it.
this is one of my favourite action movies... 5 star rating! must have!
The very first scene of "Shoot 'Em Up" is so promising that it unfortunately sets up the remainder of the run-time for disappointment. It's so funny, exciting and quirky, and my wish was that the rest of the movie matched up to it.
The sad thing is that it simply doesn't reach those peaks until the very very end. There are some interesting set pieces, and the fact that the action is so ludicrously over the top does give it a humorous edge. But these set pieces is all the movie has. I never cared for any of the characters at all, I wasn't a huge fan of the music accompanying the action, and to be honest, the conveyor belt…

Great 60-90 min films (for those days when you just don't have the energy to watch a 3 hour masterpiece)
Doesn't the title of the list explain it well enough? This is a list of hight quality "short" films. Easy…
