Shoot’em Up, a Mr. E Movie Review
(Run Time: 86 min. – Directed by: Michael Davis – Starring: Clive Owen, Paul Giamatti, Monica Bellucci)
Michael Davis’ action flick “Shoot’em Up” not only hit’s the mark, it blows the bulls eye clean out of the bulls skull! Living up to it’s title you’ll witness more bullet shells being spent in this movie than you can keep count of! (Maybe only rivaled by Saving Private Ryan!)
So, what do you get when you mix a carrot eating, rouge gunslinger, played by Clive Owen, a sexy foreign prostitute, played by Monica Bellucci, a kind of cool headed hit man, played by Paul Giamatti, a US government cover up, and a cute little orphaned baby?
You get a gunslinger who saves a baby and befriends a sexy prostitute to help feed it. All while running from a, kind of, cool headed hit man whom may or may not be working towards a government cover up!
Clive Owen play’s his smart, well trained hero role to perfection. He is as likable as he is almost invincible. His unwavering sense of doing right coupled with his sense of sarcasm makes him a very easy character to root for.
Paul Giamatti is awesomely devilish as the villain. He takes his role as the anti-hero to a whole other level. As well, his sarcasm, rants, and raves make for great entertainment filled moments between gunfights.
This clip loading, gun blasting, roller coaster ride of an action movie is ultimately fun, fast-paced, and full of some unique twists and turns!
“Shoot’em Up” is not only a big time recommend to all the action junkies looking for something to fill a couple of hours but a serious recommend for any respectable DVD collection!
(Yeah, I went there. It‘s that good.)
