Shoot Em Up: Eat you vegetables

I saw this movie last night, and was very surprised at how much I liked it.

It's just so over the top that the entire audience was laughing during the action scenes. None the less the action scenes were cool to watch, and everyone seemed to enjoy the movie. Everyone was great in it, and I have to make note of the soundtrack that just fit the movie perfectly.

    The preview commercial I saw the other night had a skit where a guy was falling through the air, landing on top of a high-flying helicopter. Chances of that happening are one in a billion but now I want to see this movie, too.

    Two words: Clive Owen. If that name doesn't send you running to the theater, nothing will.

    When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.

    So let me guess - he pouts a lot, right?

    I'm starting to think that he has some sort of facial paralysis or something.

    This movie was fucking awesome. Probably my favourite action movie. It is a blatant parody mocking action movies, but not in a contemptuous way; it is showing that action movies are goofy, but also that they are highly enjoyable. It doesn't take itself seriously at all. It is also the perfect length.

    I'm going to have see this, although I'm not a big Clive Owen fan after seeing him in King Arthur.. but then I don't think he suited the role at all.. looks like a fun movie though.

    I was hooked from the second Breed kicked in at the beginning. Such an awesome song for a birth scene/gunfight.
    And then he shoots the umbilical off!!

    I don't think so, but most of D&D has a man-crush on him.

    Do we have time? Though if the movie is to be believed it only looks like you need about a minute and half and like 3 guys to break in during the act and he's done.

    I'd say Crank had more personality overall.

    He did get his big start in Privateer 2.

    Have you seen Croupier? He acts in it for reals. It's a great little flick.
