Topic: Shoot 'Em Up: Silly fun!
I saw it on Monday night. It was either this or 310 to Yuma, but I decided on this because I was in the mood for fast action. Well, first off, the movie is a parody or satire of action flicks in the vein of "Mr. and Mrs. Smith". If you liked Vin Diesel's "XXX" or "The Transporter" movies, than you'll have yourself a good silly time. The cartoony violence is out of John Woo territory: it's like watching instead of playing a video game! And Paul Giamatti has a lot fun with the bad guy role. There's even a scene out of a horror movie in which he runs after Clive Owen with an axe.
I'm sure this will become a cult classic on DVD, but if you're in the mood to watch something in the theater on a boring September day, than buy a ticket. You might just like it. Grade: B
