Shoot 'Em Up

Clive Owen (Sin City) stars in this preposterous, stripped-to-its-bare-bones action flick as a mysterious dude in the wrong place at the wrong time who delivers a woman's baby during a shootout and is then called upon to protect the infant from an army of gunmen. Among the bad guys: Paul Giamatti (Sideways), who can be surprisingly sadistic when he wants to. Writer/director Michael Davis (the direct-to-video Monster Man) tries his best to one-up John Woo in the over-the-top action department, and does so by basically welding Hard Boiled onto an old Looney Tunes short. So ridiculous, I'm tempted to call it genius. 93 minutes R.
