Here's a review headline I just came across on rottentomatoes.com about "Shoot 'em Up" which is getting good early reviews.

"Terrific, envelope-pushing gun fighting that both parodies and pays homage to Sergio Leone and John Woo."

Interesting. I was interested in this film before because of Paul Giamatti, Monica Bellucci, and Clive Owen starring. Now, though, after reading that there's homages to Sergio, I have to see this first hand.

I've been looking forward to this for a while now. So glad it's finally getting released, I think it's been in the can for quite some time.

OH. MY. GOD! That was one of the most insane movies I've ever seen. Everyone do yourselves a favor and GO SEE IT! Like, now! Possibly the most over the top action movie ever made. I'm talking Commando shit here. The level of my man-crush on Clive Owen has elevated.

This movie is unfairly compared to John Woo films.
I remember reading one review saying "It's everything you've seen before in a John Woo film".
This is a lie. I don't remember somebody impaling another man with a karrot in a John Woo film. I don't remember a sex/action scene in a John Woo film.


Go see this. Today.
