What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Zane Henry The film is so intent on cramming in incredible gunfights and creaky one-liners that it completely neglects the audience and decent humour.
Jacques Liebenberg 'n Prettige aksie flief wat niks voorgee nie en die een skouspelagtige gevegstoneel na die ander opdis.
Kevin Crust Bullet-riddled thriller delivers the goods.
Melanie Daly Suspend your disbelief and go along for the ride — just don't expect James Bond or Jason Bourne. They're only pussies with guns anyway.

Bruce Dennill This is one of those films that's so bad it's actually enjoyable.
Barry Ronge One cannot call this a good movie, but it seems to be part of a new style of action comedies.
Ivan Sadler Shoot 'Em Up is crazy, violent and hilarious, with cartoonish characters and a slick script. The action is non-stop without getting boring and the pace is hectic almost to the point of being exhausting.
Jamie Russell An outrageously shoddy, audaciously choreographed exploitation flick that loves the smell of gunpowder in the morning.
Susan Green Bang! An instant cult hit, Shoot 'Em Up is a wildly energetic yarn calculated to score with juvenile fans of extreme but cool cinematic violence.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert 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.
Kieran Grant Shoot 'Em Up is unhinged, unsettling and unforgettable.
James Berardinelli Shoot 'Em Up is one huge send-up of the action genre, and pretty much consists of shoot-outs and chases overtaking each other like waves rolling onto a beach, each more over-the-top than its predecessor.
Peter Travers This wet dream for action junkies leaves out logic and motivation — you know, all the boring stuff. It’s eighty-two minutes of hardcore pow.
All of it's incredibly violent, profane, and certainly not for any young eyes, but it's also quite a bit of giddy fun.
Tomatometer Plenty of humor and non-stop action make for a very enjoyable film.
