Shoot 'Em Up

This is with Clive Owen. VERY well done action flick. The directors commentary chapter is very good as well. It doesn't take itself seriously and that is it's strength.

Man, I couldn't even finish that movie with Monica to ogle. So many people liked it, but to me it was horrible.

Fatty is right, after the first few chuckles not even top notch T&A could save this.

Some good action and fight scenes and Monica Bellucci is the finest woman on the planet but overall this movie suct.

I haven't seen it yet, but I'm thinking it is like another universally loathed action film, "Ballistic: Ecks vs Sever". Based on all the critical reviews (uniformly despising the movie), I was prepared to see a crapfest, but it was fine if you were in the right frame of mind for it. Think of a Uwe Boll film, only by someone who knew what he was going for besides superficial pretty pictures. I am sure that "Shoot 'Em Up" will be similar. And it IS Clive Owens.
