Shoot Em Up!

The Title says it all, this movie is non-stop shoot em up throughout! It was an interesting experience to say the least. The plot was almost nonexistant, but the action made up for it. People are killed in so many crazy yet awesome ways. There is some pretty bad language, and a brief nudity scene while they walk through a nightclub. However, It was very entertaining to watch, and will provide nonstop laughter the whole way through!

Shoot 'Em Up: Movie Review

Hello, I will be reviewing the movie, Shoot 'Em Up. Violence and Gore: The violence in this movie is endless, I mean, endless. The action has a dark sense of humor, there are constant gunfights with a body count close to 100. People are killed by guns, carrots, and crazy ways. There is a shot a person's chest shot open. A hand is decapitated, but, it's unknown how the hand is decapitated. A man's fingers are broken. The gore, is very crazy and endless, I mean CRAZY. The gore ranges from a regular gunshot wound to blood splattering and spewing. Sex: There is a lot. Women are seen having intercourse, and a man is seen dripping milk from a women's breast. Profanity: There are: 12 f-cks, 5 -sses, 4 sh-ts, 4 sons of b-tches, 3 p-ssies, 2 t-ts (used non-offensively), 1 b-tch, and 1 pr-ck. Also 8 instances of "hell", 6 of "Goddamn", 3 of "My God", 2 of "damn", 1 of "By God", and 1 of "crap". A neon sign says: F*** Y** Overall: This movie is funny, gritty, and dark at the same time. People should be extremely aware of the gore and the sex depicted in the movie. It's a good movie, but, beware of the content. Thanks for reading!

a total nonstop barrage of blood and bullets lol

this movie is amazing, it is so over the top and ridiculous you can't help but just laugh at it lol, and shoot em up actually kicks the crap out of smokin aces, it has tons more action and it's much more intense. this is going on my list of best action movies ever, I loved it :-), and it really felt like Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor were involved with this movie since it was so crazy lol

Good, funny, violent action spoof!

A funny little, what I would call "action spoof" sure there's mild nudity and a ton of violence, but after all, porn is just two clicks away, and there's plenty of violence in the news!

Silly but enjoyable.

It was an interesting movie, despite having a lacking plot and way over the top action and sex. Still, it was a good date movie and we both laughed most of the way through it. My boyfriend and I will never be able to look at carrots the same way again.

Shoot Em Up

Very violent, the movie is almost entirely gunfire. Not the best plot but some will think it is good because of all the violence, gunfire, and action scenes.

Way over-the-top adrenaline rushed spoof

I enjoyed the movie for it's way over the top violence, and i laughed hard at some of the movie's comedy. The movie is very hyperactive and stylized throughout with spoofs from everything to Bugs Bunny and Pulp Fiction. I found the violence very comical and stylized although there was alot of blood and some unrealistic gore, yet nothing was too disturbing. The language was everything you would expect at an r-rated film. The overall message had no moral whatsoever yet what i found most disturbing was the sexual themes, since one of the main charactors is a prostitute that can lead for some sexual situations so be warned. I found Shoot Em Up very unique and very enjoyable for an older audience, but i think it's okay for people around my age if you know the difference between hollywood guts and blood between real gore.

Decent, but very awkward to watch depending on who you're watching it with. The storyline is nearly nonexistant, and the character development is awful, with over-exaggerated violence and some disturbing sex scenes. Overall, the movie was good for a laugh, but make sure you're not watching it with anyone you'd be embarrassed with.
