SHOOT'EM UP is Clive Owen in a two hour gun fight to promote gun control. Nothing but inventive action & killing. I loved it & Monica Bellucci. 500 people are killed & by the end of the movie you laughing at every death. It does for gunfights what BLAZING SADDLES did for eating beans around the campfire. Hurry because it's been labled a bomb.---Yohe

Gotta tell ya, I hated this film. Didn't think it was one-tenth as funny as it thinks it is. I know the whole thing is supposed to be done with a knowing wink, but does that extend to the "punch lines" almost uniformly falling flat as a pancake?

I like over the top gun violence (see "Hard Boiled") but even that is weak here as the set pieces were inane to the point of distraction. At some point, they just started to flat out bore me as well.

On the plus side, Monica Bellucci is still quite the dish. Had they gotten her naked, I just might have given it a pass on that basis. :)
