Shoot 'Em Up

I'm a British nanny and I'm dangerous.


Shoot 'Em Up
This somewhat over the top film takes screen violence to places it's never been before. We kick off with our hero, a deadly Mr. Smith, lending a hand to a pregnant woman when the baddies try to off her and her baby. After delivering the baby and losing the mother, he ropes in a kindly hooker as a new milk supply, and together the two of them have to survive not only the baddies, but also the cops, as they try to find out why the baddies want the baby dead.

84 minutes.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Zane Henry quote iconThe film is so intent on cramming in incredible gunfights and creaky one-liners that it completely neglects the audience and decent humour.
5
Die Burger
Jacques Liebenberg quote icon'n Prettige aksie flief wat niks voorgee nie en die een skouspelagtige gevegstoneel na die ander opdis.
15
Cape Times
Kevin Crust quote iconBullet-riddled thriller delivers the goods.

Melanie Daly quote iconSuspend your disbelief and go along for the ride — just don't expect James Bond or Jason Bourne. They're only pussies with guns anyway.

The Citizen
Bruce Dennill quote iconThis is one of those films that's so bad it's actually enjoyable.
12
Sunday Times
Barry Ronge quote iconOne cannot call this a good movie, but it seems to be part of a new style of action comedies.
10
24.com
Ivan Sadler quote iconShoot '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.
15
BBC
Jamie Russell quote iconAn outrageously shoddy, audaciously choreographed exploitation flick that loves the smell of gunpowder in the morning.
10
Box Office
Susan Green quote iconBang! An instant cult hit, Shoot 'Em Up is a wildly energetic yarn calculated to score with juvenile fans of extreme but cool cinematic violence.
10
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconShoot '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.
18
eye Weekly
Kieran Grant quote iconShoot 'Em Up is unhinged, unsettling and unforgettable.
10
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconShoot '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.
13
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconThis wet dream for action junkies leaves out logic and motivation — you know, all the boring stuff. It’s eighty-two minutes of hardcore pow.
15
ScreenIt
quote iconAll of it's incredibly violent, profane, and certainly not for any young eyes, but it's also quite a bit of giddy fun.
