Wow!!!!By zedphelan (84 reviews) from London , 28 Feb 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]Movie Alert: THIS FILM IS A MUST SEE. Fundamentally a French film but bringing a touch of Hollywood with the likes of Travolta. Action packed from the very beginning and lasts throughout. This film will leave you breathless from all the energy packed scenes. Not only is it full of action but it is highly hilarious too. Travolta played a blinder in this role, I would say he pulls off this role superbly. Then you have the delicious Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who, even though I love him, I was not expecting much as I would never associate him with a film of this genre. But he played your silent assassin without fault, Ok maybe the American accent was a bit dodgy but he stepped up to this role and made it his own. Brilliant!

This movie contains almost nonstop actionBy boltonlee (33 reviews) , 11 Apr 2013This is one fun, totally over the top, high body count, action comedy that is definitely worth a ticket. Luc Besson wrote and produced it, just like director Pierre Morel's last fun hit, Taken. If you enjoyed that movie you will certainly like this one. Tight, fast, and hilarious in places. This, like Taken, is head and shoulders above the dumbed down fare that Hollywood seems to be able to do in this genre. Masterful tension and release, lots of laughter in the theater, in the right places.
This film is 5 star and all that you see is being done somewhere right now.By a customer , 11 Apr 2013Excellent film well worth watching to see what those who fight for us are capable of doing, all that you see is done in real life and also with the black humour that goes along with the worst job in the world and which no doubt causes huge damage to the fine men and women who keep us safe.
Good action movieBy keithgriffiths (3 reviews) , 08 Apr 2013That was really good. John Travolta does not stop making really good movies. Great sound track as well. I don't want to spoil the movie but why did his girlfriend die?
An uncomfortable mix...By chris-m (16 reviews) , 07 Apr 2013...of fantasy violence and gritty spy thriller. For about the first third of the movie I honestly thought that the Rhys-Meyers character was delusional and Travolta's super spy existed only in his imagination - how else could one man with a pistol take out 10 Chinese with machine guns ? I ask you! But no: we're meant to believe that all this stuff is really happening (in Paris) in pursuit of a complex intelligence trail unfolding at breakneck speed. It really is difficult to suspend your disbelief to this extent. Not a patch on some of his (Luc Besson's) earlier work like Leon. Watch it if you're desperate.
Good entertainmentBy a customer , 07 Apr 2013It's entertaining, I find both leads charismatic which helps. Yes, the plot is minimal, but the action is good, I was never bored.
