Just saw this tonight. C&P time:

Shoot 'Em Up - 9/10

If ever there was a film that was made for the baser EG forumites this is it. An absolute blast right from the get go. Shit, the first person to die gets killed by a carrot driven through his face. Totally ridiculous but funnier than anything I've seen in years the stupid-ass script was pitched just right, with utter daftness offset by three heavy-weight actors.

A compound of the best attitudes of Snakes on a Plane, Falling Down and Shogun Assassin. Or, seeing as this is such a video game movie, Duke Nukem, FEAR and No One Lives Forever. Cannot recommend highly enough; if you don't love it and laff yer tits clean off you're either dead or need to renew your sub to the Daily Mail/Guardian.

Hadnt heard anything about this until I saw the Monica Belluchi poster near work. That was enough to make me interested, but it looks pretty cool in the trailer.

Paul Giamatti is good enough reason to make this interesting, especially as he appears to be a psycho in this (based on the trailers).

Thought this looked a bit arse from the trailer I saw the other week, but since you have given it a glowing review I might give it a try.

Carrot you say?

As much as I respect Giamatti as a top class actor, I think I'm going to have to side with Furbs on this one.

He does say "Fuck me sideways" which got a fair old laugh.

Thank fuck it is tongue in cheek. The trailer didn't quite get that across...for a second I thought it was being serious, but I guess that's what a good parody should set out to do.
