Shoot 'Em Up

I came across a movie called Shoot 'Em Up (2007) with Clive Owen Saturday night while waiting for the new Dr. Who.  I caught the ending and some earlier parts; it's full of blood, mayhem, and death--but with funny--and unbelievable--scenes, including a shootout in the sky (skydiving), a shootout with the villain and his henchmen--with a scalpel in his hand, and a shootout with robbers in a cafe at the very end.  If you see it, be sure to watch for the scene after the skydiving shootout--as the hero walks away.  On looking up the movie, I see that it got very mixed reviews, and I'm not sure I'd care for the whole thing because of the torture and other elements.
