to:

* RatedMForManlyRatedMForManly: Guns, guns, [[RuleOfThree even more guns]], {{Mooks}} getting massacred by the dozens, HeavyMetal, Monica Bellucci [[{{Fanservice}} in skimpy clothing]]... Almost borders on TestosteronePoisoning, really.

* BrokenAesop: A movie that celebrates gun violence has a [[UsefulNotes/AmericanGunPolitics pro-gun control]] message. According to the DVD commentary, this was not an attempt at a SpoofAesop, but was simply in keeping with the overall gun theme. All the problems and solutions of the film directly relate to guns. Recite the mantra.

** The scene is hampered by the fact that Hersh has a Desert Eagle, which has more than six rounds. This was a carry-over from an earlier version of the script, where Hersh was supposed to have a .44 Magnum revolver in homage to ''Film/DirtyHarry''.

No, really.

The film exists to show gunfights in every conceivable situation, from high-speed chases to [[CoitusUninterruptus mid-sex]] to mid-''skydiving''. Heck, it might as well be called ''Guns: The Movie'' because that's really the main focus of the film. The plot is secondary to [[AffectionateParody meta-humor]] and ''really'' over-the-top action sequences. No, we mean '''''really''''' over-the-top. Creator/RogerEbert commented: "''I may disapprove of a movie for [[WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief going too far]], and yet have a sneaky regard for a movie that goes [[CrossesTheLineTwice much, much farther than merely too far.]]''" By one count, Smith kills over one hundred and twenty people over the course of the film.

Not to be confused with {{Shoot Em Up}}s, the video game genre. Although they do have a lot in common.

* WeNeedADistraction: Donna needs to slip inside the tank, so Smith promises a distraction. He sees a woman striking her child so he proceeds to spank her.

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterTic: As explained in the commentary, ''every'' character in the movie has at least one small quirk that sets them apart from the other characters, from Smith's carrots, to the Lone Man's constant gun-polishing. Hell, even the little old lady who runs the pawn shop, from whom Smith and DQ buy bullets and a bullet-proof respectively, has a thing for watches.

* RubeGoldbergDevice: In order to get into the AbandonedWarehouse he's using as a home, Smith takes a rat out of a cage, removes a brick from the wall and pushes the rat inside. The rat runs down a tunnel into a wire basket on a pulley which drops from the weight, pushing down a latch to open the door.

Seems odd on its own, but it fits with Smith's "Bugs Bunny" allusion, detailed below.
