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.
Clive Owen puts on another trench coat and gets back to shooting people in his latest attempt to be James Bond without actually getting in a Bond movie. Don’t expect Shoot ‘Em Up to be anything other than a big, dumb, action movie and if we’re lucky it’ll be a good one. But in a year when we’ve had an awesome Die Hard sequel and one of the best action/spy movies ever made in The Bourne Identity, Shoot ‘Em Up has its work cut out for it to stand out from the crowd.
