At first, I thought the title was inappropriate for an action movie, especially when the story revolves the beautiful city of Paris. We all know Paris as the city of Lights and Romance. The Majestic scenery and the breathtaking view of the Parisian skyline as modernity and classic meet. Then...


Explosions everywhere! Street Gangs on the loose, thugs and muggers carrying different kinds of weapons roam the streets! And that where we find the protagonists, James Resse (Rhys Meyers) and Charles Wax (Travolta) start their partnership in pursuit of threats to national/international security. The movie had bad-ass moves that you can call real action. However, you might consider that with great action comes great number of violence and foul language, so sorry kids, better luck when you are older. 
But for us of the perfect age for this kind of stuff, its really worth a trip to the cinemas. The image I had for John Travola was shattered with this movie. Which is actually real good, I thought he was Batista (the wrestler... well for those who don't know him). I couldn't keep myself in noticing that in the movie I would see more other nationalities than the French. So the French feel is somehow overshadowed. And actually, I have ran out of other criticisms and everything has been wickedly and bloody damn good!

And one more thing, Travolta's lines were so good, its a classic! It also really made me laugh!

Deliberation time kids!
