  Brilliant fun!!

| | See all DLR1965's reviews (35)

A brilliant tongue in cheek shoot out!
This film is not intended to be taken seriously, but is seriously funny at times.
If you like a far fetched stroryline, lots of gun fire and a good laugh....then it's a must!!

  What's Up Doc?

| | See all Brausch's reviews (187)

Basically a 90 minute gunfight with exposition delivered during pauses for reloading. Clive Owen adds class as he deadpans through his role as a carrot crunching nanny and Paul Giamatti relishes the chance to throw off his indie/ arthouse image and really chew the scenery. Reviled by those who seem confused by what a film with this title would be, if it had been made in Hong Kong it would now be classed as a masterpiece.

  A real shot of adrenalin

It's appropriate that gun- and carrot-wielding assassin Owen at one point asks the baddie "What's up, doc?" as this madcap hyperviolent piece of lunacy is basically a Looney Tunes cartoon fused with a John Woo movie. Actually, John Woo is WAY too mild when stacked up to Davis' inspired pisstake of the action movie. So while Owen and Bellucci go on the run with a baby in tow (born during a shootout), with the photogenic couple even taking time out to have sex during a shootout, you can't help but enjoy the frenzy of it all, even though you know it's so bad for you.

A first-class Blu-ray too, with a jaw-dropping picture transfer.

People, be a bit more open minded, come on!! Not all the movies are to be treated dead serious!! This a great a bit Tarantino-style movie, a great joke on superhero movies!! Absolutely adore it!! The main character is just a big joke, always successful in his shootings, always manages to get away in the most impossible circumstances!! Plus the bit with him eating the carrots all the time-just like Bugs the Bunny. A great action to watch on a blue-ray, extremely well done. Just do not take it serious at all. Love the bit with him moaning about a couple of things-like in the opening scene-about the kick ass machos with the pony tails!! Absolutely amazing. Definetely sympathize with the character on that one :-))

  Very poor film

| | See all kippy001's reviews (4)

Dreadful film. Killing for the sake of it with a very poor story line. What on earth an actor of Clive Owens capability is doing here I've no idea. Must be short of rent money.

  Does what it says on the tin

I am a 26 year old female and I saw this on sky the other night and I loved it so much I had to come and buy the blu-ray. Yes it's over the top but it does have a particularly graphic torture scene which I wasn't expecting. The action is non-stop and amazing. It's switch-your-brain-off testosterone fuelled fun at it's best!! I can't wait for this blu-ray to arrive.

  OTT Action at it's best!

| | See all LadyKawaii's reviews (2)

This film is all about ridiculous action. It is pure trigger violence fun. It's not meant to be serious and if thats what you want, don't buy it. It's just unadulterated silliness. I love it! Yes the acting is not great and the lines are lame but they're supposed to be! It's a great film to watch with a bunch of action loving friends. It also has the best sex scene I've seen! Great fun.

  oh my god this is awsome

Do you ever sit and critisise films for being too over the top? If so you should not buy this film, on the other hand if like me you love action movies, this is the best movie i have seen in maybe 15 years, oh and the blu ray makes it even better
