November 3, Full Review…. March 25, Rating: 2. View All Critic Reviews Jun 03, 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. Gimly M Super Reviewer. Aug 31, 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.
Jamie C Super Reviewer. Nov 12, Directors C Super Reviewer. May 06, 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.

Anyone looking for subtlety, character development or layered plotting will be disappointed, but action fans will find plenty to amuse them with this film that makes "Hard-Boiled" look restrained.
Lou Lumenick. Michael Sragow. The saving grace in an exuberantly graceless movie is Clive Owen. This actor is bulletproof. Even in a sick-joke jamboree like Shoot 'Em Up, he mows down the competition and gets his laughs without losing his composure. Jonathan Rosenbaum. One can certainly be amused and entertained by writer-director Michael Davis's hyperbolic action frolics--I was--but not without feeling pretty low and stupid.
Connie Ogle. Despite all the flying bullets, which are admittedly entertaining at times, Shoot 'Em Up doesn't offer enough bang for your bucks. Dana Stevens. Owen, Giamatti, and Bellucci--all fine actors at the peak of hireability--must have been coming off a collective coke bender when they agreed to be in this murky, straight-to-video-looking piece of crud.

The game is notable for using a traditional fantasy setting in contrast to most shoot 'em up games filled with science fiction motifs. Taito's Front Line established the upwards-scrolling formula later popularized by Commando , in However, by the early s and the popularity of bit consoles , the scrolling shooter genre was overcrowded, with developers struggling to make their games stand out one exception being the inventive Gunstar Heroes , by Treasure.
Treasure's shoot 'em up, Radiant Silvergun , introduced an element of narrative to the genre. It was critically acclaimed for its refined design, though it was not released outside Japan and remains a much sought-after collector's item. However, despite the genre's continued appeal to an enthusiastic niche of players, shoot 'em up developers are increasingly embattled financially by the power of home consoles and their attendant genres.
In the mids indie game development increased in popularity, which led to several notable shoot 'em ups such as Jamestown: Legend of the Lost Colony , Assault Android Cactus , Enter the Gungeon , and Cuphead From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
