        Balls to the wall frenetic action and carrot-laced black comedy mix in this silly, cathartic and entertaining ride. I haven't seen anything quite like it since the Jason Statham vehicle, Crank.

        Shoot 'Em Up is the kind of film that's perfect to watch with your mates and just enjoy its nonsense and that's all it's good for, The story is simple and nothing new but the action is so OTT that we can't help but love it and when Clive Owen kills two people with a raw carrot we all know what kind of film it is, It's bloody and silly but it works well, Clive Owens dry humour works perfect as the film never takes itself seriously, It has everything a growing boy needs.

        While the film's excessive violence and crude humor may not satisfy all moviegoers, it is still a solid shot in presenting a well-formulated plot along with a strong performances from its cast (Owen, Giamatti, Bellucci) Shoot 'Em Up, like the protagonist in the film, shoots everywhere from all different angles, and though unorthodox, finds its target and penetrates well. 4.5/5
