SHOOT 'EM UP is a wildly edgy and inventive action movie with a dark sense of humor which promises to take audiences on a non-stop high-speed ride.
Clive Owen portrays Mr. Smith, the angriest, most hardboiled man in the world, who finds himself entrusted to protect the most innocent thing of all - a newborn child. When Smith delivers the baby in the middle of a gunfight, he soon discovers that the infant is the target of a shadowy force that has sent a team of mysterious and endless assailants, led by Hertz (Paul Giamatti), to erase all traces of the baby.
Amid a hail of bullets and facing every conceivable permutation of gunfight, Smith teams up with a prostitute named DQ (Monica Bellucci) to solve the mystery as to why the baby's life is being threatened before this makeshift family all ends up on the wrong side of a bullet. Everyone wants the baby dead. The big question is why?
