    What a mindless, over the-top, funny, brilliant film this is, all action even an action sex scene, Monica Belluchi is hot, leave your brain at the door and go and see one of the best popcorn movies this year.:thumbsup:

    As always, along comes someone to spoil the party - I didn't like it. There's tongue in then there's this...really couldn't get into it.

    I saw this last week and loved it, it was really funny and OTT in the right way, just an enjoyable popcorn movie that I highly recommend to anyone who wants to visit the cinema and not need to use there brain too much.

    Yep. It was on Youtube for a while. I would say it overtakes the crazy sex scene from Crank.

    I am glad that i am not the only one to enjoy this. I walked out loving it, but couldn't quiet figure out why. Stupid plot, totally unrealistic, really bad jokes, but it somehow added together to give a good film.

    Sometimes these unfurgivably action packed cheese fests are the best films. You feel a little guilty afterwards but grinning with enjoyment. Die Hard 4 rocked aswell.

    Stupid movie I reckon.

    The sex scene was laughable.

    Very daft movie, over the top and I'd put it in the same pidgeon hole as Crank and Smokin' Aces. Paul Giamatti was as bad in this as Owen was in Sin City. I can't say that I liked it or didn't like it, it's daft but it's fun.

    Is there going to be a HD-DVD release? There was talk of a HD-DVD release a few months ago, but can't seem to find it.

    I'm sorry but what exactly was you expecting from this film? It's pretty obvious from the trailers/posters that this film has little or no plot at all. It's purely an action film.

    Got the dvd yesterday still made me laugh lol. Was a great experince to see this at the cinema, i think people who dont like it probably don't get it its abit like crank.
    It's not ment to make sense or have any plot, the dialogue scenes are jsut there to bridge the action, its nice to see something different now and then.

    It's a 'no brain required' action fest. Loved it to bits. :thumbsup:

    Great fun as far as I'm concerned.

    I love Monica and any film where she's dressed in a pink waitress outfit is a result for me.

    It makes Crank look like A History of Violence though, but as long as you're expecting a tongue in cheek actioner you should be okay!

    Watched this on Saturday. Total nonsense but loads of fun. Its got its toungue firmly in its cheeck. I loved the way none of the bad guys could shoot but Clive Owen could shoot anything. Reminded me of The A-Team :D Summed up with
    Paul Giamatti's line 'Are we really this bad or is he really that good?' :rotfl:

    And Monica, can never get too much of her. :devil:


    My only problem with it is having Clive Owen. Although he's great the fact that he's in an action movie protecting a baby reminds me of the brilliant Children Of Men. Thats a much more serious movie and I don't want to be thinking of Shoot Em Up while watching it.

    Just watched this and well what a load of nonsense. Saying that its a lot of fun, it does exactly what the title say's and is totally daft but enjoyable with it. 7/10

    loved it

    awesome film, disengage brain, join rollercoster ride of OTT constant action and the film laughing at itself :thumbsup:

    great film to wind down on after a hard week with pizza slice in one hand and a stack of beers near the other :smashin:

    if you want to think about a film, plot development or ponder characterisation go watch brokeback mountain :boring:
