Movie Reviews

For Gerard Butler fans - his Jackie Junior character
~Pamela~ | Colorado USA | 08/16/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"One of Gerry Butler's early movies but worth seeing for his scenes alone! The movie SHOOTERS! is a gritty crime drama along the lines of THE USUAL SUSPECTS with many dark scenes of violence and criminal activity. It isn't everyone's cuppa' tea but Gerard Butler fans will find the character he plays -- Jackie Junior -- both violent and charming. Gerry's character can attack his criminal cohorts in a heart stopping scene one minute and kiss their forheads the next. Jackie Junior has only a few small but memorable scenes and they are dynamite filled with this actor's great energy and bold acting.Not to be missed if you are collecting the work of this fine actor."
Violent people and guns---
M. J. Ward | Heartland Of The USA | 07/24/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Shooters is in the genre including John Woo's City On Fire (1987), which Tarantino borrowed for Reservoir Dogs (1992). Very violent, with drugs, guns and violence the stars.

While it does not have the balletic grace of Woo's slow-motion shooting scenes, nor a star with the charisma of Chow Yun Fat behind the gun, it is a worthy entry into the genre. The cast acquit themselves well in mostly underwritten roles. Louis Dempsey is fine as recently released from prison Gilly, who is the voice telling the story. His friend(?) J is annoying, but Gerard Butler does a crazed violent and vain gun dealer well.

The gritty streets, sleazy bars and places these underworld people frequent is shown with the contrast to the home J and his wife and child have but he is already among the living dead, as the narrator says. These people walk streets with the rest of us, but their world can turn violent and deadly in a second.

Not great, but I give it a solid 7/10.
Violent and Gritty but wonderfully acted

"The actor Gerard Butler is my favorite and his portrayal of the gangster Jackie Jr. in this film is right on target. Jackie is scary and dangerous one minute and oozing charm the next. He is the highlight of this movie for me but all of the performances are great. The viewer is dragged into the gritty underworld of a UK metropolis and dragged through many sordid episodes. Not for the squeamish but it is a dark study in crime and retribution."

"Since I work for a police department the whole "drug" theme of this movie was a little too close to home for me. I did enjoy the movie but you wound up feeling sad for the pathetic lives of the characters. Gerard Butler fans will like his portrayal of a slightly crazy arms dealer. The acting was well done and the plot was unfortunately really close to the type of lives that drug dealers and users actually live."
