Short Take: "Shoot 'Em Up"

What I tweeted: Shoot 'Em Up-Title says it all. Paul Giamatti tries to shoot Clive Owen, who ends up shooting everyone else. Has more ammo than sense. 5.5 (out of 10)

What I thought: Bullets fly in this shoot ‘em up. Somehow Clive Owen saves a pregnant woman, delivers her baby and ends up in Paul Giamatti’s cross hairs. Giamatti’s performance is way over the top. So I guess he enjoyed himself. I really didn’t. If you’re looking for a Clive-Owen-as-midwife movie, I’d go with the much better “Children of Men.”
