Movie Review: Shoot ‘Em Up

Mr. Smith (Clive Owen) introduced himself as “I’m a British nanny, and I’m dangerous”. It really describes briefly what this movie is all about. Full action from start to finish with some satire humor. Not everyone’s fond of. But I don’t mind paying the ticket to watch this. Actually I did. The story is about a man who save a newly born baby from the people who want the baby dead.

Pros :

- It has Clive Owen in it. Which is quite unique. He’s arguably one of the oscar calibre actors. But here he stared in a pure action movie.

- You can watch Monica Bellucci :mrgreen: Wonder how she can still be gorgeus with age

- I always like a movie which can combine action with unique humor. This movie offers violence with dark humor.

- Good action sequences. Not great though.

- the opening sequence is very good. Mr. Smith is sitting alone on the side of an empty street when suddenly he saw a pregnant lady running away from a group of people who tried to kill her. No need to wait too long for the first gunshot scene :)

- I love every single carrot scene in this movie :mrgreen:

Cons :

- Weak plot. Many flaws. It seems that the director didn’t care enough about the story

- You can’t expect an extraordinary action sequences in this movie. The budget was only about $39M. It’s obvious that the crews tried hard to make every scene within those budget.

General & Rating :

- Title : Shoot ‘Em Up

- Director : Michael Davies

- Cast : Clive Owen, Monica Bellucci, Paul Giamatti, Stephen McHattie, Greg Bryk

- Genre : action/comedy

- My Rating : 3 out of 5

Note : I’m not sure why I’ve been so lazy in writing anything in this blog. So I change the format of movie review post a little bit. Hope it’s short enough :mrgreen:

    it started off great but went down hill fast when it went political. should have kept to the story it started with.

    hello Chuck, thx for your comment :) Yes, I agree. I don’t really like the story become so heavy in politics. Better to let it simple :)
