* UsefulNotes/GunSafety: Smith knows you can never learn 'em too young.
* GunsAkimbo: The first use of a fully-automatic gun in the film is when one of Hertz' {{Mooks}} shoots two Mini Uzis JohnWoo-style (aim both into the same direction, squeeze the triggers and hold 'em down until the magazines are empty). The usual.

* GunsDoNotWorkThatWay: Apart from the obvious RuleOfCool examples, the CountingBullets scene doesn't match the actual guns being used by either Hertz or Smith.

* WorldOfBadass: Everyone is a {{Badass}} except DQ and a few InnocentBystanders. Yes, including Oliver who, despite just a few days old, loves HeavyMetal and guns.

* TheHeavy: Hertz is not the main villain, but he's the one who gives Smith the most trouble.

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.
