'Shoot 'Em Up' a bloodbath without guilty fun to redeem it
Ruthe Stein
San Francisco Chronicle

Even more distressing is the presence of Owen and Paul Giamatti. I understand the concept of working as much as possible while you're hot, but it's a slippery slope.

You won’t be able to wipe the grin off your face - 3 out of 4 stars
Peter Travers
Rolling Stone

See Shoot ‘Em Up for the affectionate sendup it is... This wet dream for action junkies leaves out logic and motivation -- you know, all the boring stuff.

"Shoot 'Em Up" is an elaborate slapstick cartoon with dead bodies
Gene Seymour

Everything about this neo-noir version of an Itchy & Scratchy marathon is casually ludicrous, right down to its back-handed advocacy of - wait for it - gun control.

The title of this over-the-top action movie says it all.
Frank Scheck
Hollywood Reporter

Anyone looking for subtlety, character development or layered plotting will be disappointed, but action fans will find plenty to amuse them.
