Shoot 'Em Up (2007)


#1

In TOTAL FILM, they were talking about an upcoming action film with Clive Owen that was somewhat interesting. I figured I would probably go see it.



…And then I found a little information bubble that said: "Monica Bellucci aids our Clive as DQ (‘Dairy Queen’ to her clients) a working girl who specialises in lactation fetishes."



Now I am definitely seeing it. Monica Bellucci and lactation fetish. Sounds sweet!

Yeah, I was pretty excited about this movie until I saw the trailer.

It just looks silly for all the wrong reasons.

I thought it looked great 8)

Looks awesome. Fucking awesome.

I dunno, it almost looks like a parody. I’m all for an over the top action movie

that doesn’t take itself too seriously but the humor just fell flat on it’s face.

That, and it felt like Giamatti knew every line he was giving wouldn’t work no

matter what he did, so he just didn’t even try.



I mean, God knows I love me some over the top action but the dialogue just

seems stiff, forced, and done before. But with all that said, it is just a trailer

and everything I’ve heard about the movie so far is pretty positive so I’ll probly

give it a chance. I mean, I’m an american male so as long as shit blows up at a

steady enough pace I’ll buy me a ticket.

Today while doing an edit bay visit with Michael Davis, the director of Shoot ‘Em Up, he told the IESB that Clive Owen had signed on to do both Shoot ‘Em Up 2 and 3.



So while there are no immediate plans for a sequel, he currently has a script that could easily be adapted to be a follow up. He didn’t reveal any details of the script but he said that Don Murphy would be producing again whether it ends up being adapted for a sequel or a turned into whole new film.



His hopes are to have Clive Owen also return regardless if it’s a sequel or not as well.

There is no word on whether the possible sequel will include Monica Belluci or Paul Giamatti as additional cast.



Good news for Clive Owen fans, he will be attending Comic Con 2007 and will be screening Shoot ‘Em Up in its entirety. Details will be coming shortly on how to get tickets.



A gritty, fast-paced action thriller, Shoot 'Em Up kicks into high gear with a memorable opening scene and never relents. Clive Owen stars as Mr. Smith, a mysterious loner who teams up with an unlikely ally (Monica Belluci) to protect a newborn baby from a determined criminal (Paul Giamatti) who hunts them throughout the bowels of the city. Shoot 'Em Up is written and directed by Michael Davis (Monster Man) and is scheduled for a Sept. 7, 2007 release.

I think it looks pretty good. When it comes to action films, I am not always that picky. I mean, I kind of liked Smokin’ Aces for what it was, over-the-top violence. Really all I want to see is plenty of explosions, gunfights and lactation.
