"No Name, No Past, Nothing to Lose."
A gritty, fast-paced action thriller, Shoot 'Em Up kicks into high gear with a memorable opening scene and never relents. Clive Owen stars as Mr. Smith, a mysterious loner who teams up with an unlikely ally (Monica Belluci) to protect a newborn baby from a determined criminal (Paul Giamatti) who hunts them throughout the bowels of the city. Shoot 'Em Up was written and directed by Michael Davis (Monster Man).

"A trigger happy full frontal assault.  Pete Hammond, Maxim
"...belongs to the same questionable new category of exploitation film as "Smokin' Aces" and "Domino"...  Peter Debruge, Variety
"See Shoot 'Em Up for the affectionate sendup it is, and you won't be able to wipe the grin off your face.  Rolling Stone
"...a deliriously over-the-top exercise in pulp filmmaking...the most satisfying, ultra-stylized action flick since Sin City...  Tim Knight, Reel.com
"A bold, brash blast of a movie...Davis' script has a wicked glint in its eye...  Total Film

Editor's Note
For an action film, boasting a body count higher than its IQ isn't always a bad thing. In director and screenwriter Michael Davis's stylish SHOOT ?EM UP, inventive set pieces, and tongue-in-cheek humor make for fun, fast entertainment. Clive Owen (CHILDREN OF MEN) plays Smith, a man who is minding his own business and chomping on carrots when he is forced to try to save a pregnant woman in trouble. After she is killed, he takes charge, keeping her newborn child safe from a snarling villain (Paul Giamatti, THE ILLUSIONIST). Aided by a prostitute (Monica Belluci, THE BROTHERS GRIMM), Smith shoots his way through the big city as he cradles the baby in his arms.

Davis hails from the same school of thought as fellow directors Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. Like those filmmakers, Davis doesn't take the medium too seriously, as he pays homage to action classics and peppers the film with playful dialogue and set pieces. This film might not be the standard choice for an Oscar-nominated actor such as Giamatti, but he's clearly enjoying his role as the bad guy, and it's just as much fun for the audience. With SHOOT ?EM UP, Davis has crafted a movie full of jaw-dropping action sequences sure to please fans of high-energy films from directors such as John Woo.

Expert Review Shoot 'Em Up - DVD Review
By: Paul Brenner filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 12/22/2007 12:57 AM
Presenting the recipe for a Shoot 'Em Up cocktail: Mix together a shot each of John Woo, Chuck Jones, and Run Lola Run, a dash of Sergio Leone and the Coen Brothers, add a twist of John Cassavetes' Gloria, shake vigorously and pour. Michael Davis' Shoot 'Em Up is a giddy, deranged, pumped-up theme park ride in Bullet Land where the bullets fly like rain, bodies drop like hail, and carrots are used as lethal weapons. Shoot 'Em Up grabs you by the throat, commands you to have fun and wills you not take anything that follows seriously enough to worry about....read the full review
Expert Review Shoot 'Em Up - DVD Review
By: Franck Tabouring Cinema Blend DVD Reviews
Published on: 1/5/2008 7:37 PM
Given the striking diversity of every of those unique action scenes, it's practically impossible to decide on which battle in the flick is the sharpest and most wicked. Sure, the level of implausibility dramatically rises as the running time nears its end, but every shootout is unique in itself, thus making it a lot harder for any lunatic filmmaker to top Shoot 'Em Up in the near future. ...read the full review

"Paul Giamatti, as the villain, has just the right feral sadistic sweatiness, and he does great..." -- Grade: B 09/14/2007 p.128

Empire
4 stars out of 5 -- "[S]howcasing genuine invention and pitch-black wit, as well as two eye-catching leads..." 10/01/2007 p.45

Sight and Sound
"[T]he best thing about the fast-edited, grittily designed SHOOT 'EM UP is probably Paul Giammati as bad guy Hertz....His lipsmacking, beard-stroking, spectacle-winking, indomitable mania is one of the great pleasures of the film..." 11/01/2007 p.75

ReelViews 7 of 10
When it comes to truth in advertising, Shoot 'Em Up delivers. You want gunfights, you get gunfights - big, wild, and crazy. The problem with the film is that it's a one joke concept. Even at a slim 85 minutes, it wears out its welcome. The first half hour is great fun. The second half-hour is okay. Past the hour mark, however, exhaustion - the stepchild of repetition - sets in. Plus, there are a couple of graphic torture sequences that cast a pall over the proceedings rather than adding to the general sense of gleeful havoc...Hard-core action fans will enjoy what the film has to offer, even if it runs 50% longer than it needs to. There isn't a credible moment in the entire enterprise, and that's intentional. Any review that uses the terms "preposterous" or "unrealistic" in a pejorative sense has missed the point. I like Shoot 'Em Up's audacity and its willingness to push the envelope beyond the limits of good taste. In the end, it's a little too long and uneven to recommend outright, but I won't deny having enjoyed aspects of what Davis is offering. Drinking the full adrenaline-with-a-wink cocktail might be too much, but there's nothing wrong with sampling it. - James Berardinelli

Chicago Sun-Times 9 of 10
"Shoot 'em Up," written and directed by the gung-ho Michael Davis, is the most audacious, implausible, cheerfully offensive, hyperactive action picture I've seen since, oh, "Sin City," which in comparison was a chamber drama. That I liked "Shoot 'em Up" is a consequence of a critical quirk I sometimes notice: 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. This one goes so far, if you even want to get that far, you have to start half-way there, which means you have to be a connoisseur of the hard-boiled action genre and its serio-comic subdivision..."Shoot 'em Up" will become, I suspect, some kind of legend in the murky depths of extreme action. What elevates it from the depraved to the deserving is a sense of style, a sense of warped humor and the acting. Clive Owen brings what credibility there could possibly be to his character, and makes us believe it as much as we possibly can (not much, in both cases, but points for effort). Paul Giamatti, Hollywood's favorite nerd, is surprisingly, teeth-gnashingly evil. And Monica Bellucci is DQ, the hooker with the heart of gold, who becomes Mr. Smith's partner and the baby's surrogate mother. - Roger Ebert
