Ok, so I initially had...By a customer from NEWBURY , 30 Mar 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Ok, so I initially had doubts about this one. My French is a long way from perfect and I thought that would spoil the whole film if I was constantly staring at the subtitles. Not so! From start to finish I found this to be as captivating as any other film of the same genre of any language.
The plot is simple. There are bad guys in fast cars and our unlikely hero is needed to help the police capture them regardless of not actually having a drivers licence. The action is fast and the car chase/stunts are very well done. Unlike other car orientated films (Fast & Furious and so on) the plot isn't too serious and their is a good deal of humour to lift the story.
I found this to be a fast, fun and funny film - even though I didn't understand a word of it!

Loved itBy nicky81 from London , 03 Mar 2005very very funny and enjoyable. Taxi is not like your average french film, they have definitely gone for a more American style and is not at all arty or deep. The characters are great and will make you laugh.
But if you like your films to be realistic then it's maybe not for you.
What a great filmBy a customer from Tunbridge Wells , 14 Feb 2005I really enjoyed this film. Humourous storyline, presented as the French do best. A pizza delivery guy decides to change his career and becomes a taxi driver in a sooped up peugeot 406.
Great FilmBy FinPaddy from North Lanarkshire , 21 Jan 2005This is an excellent film. Really enjoyed the whole comedy aspect. Great for a night in. Only problem is that the film is in french and you need to run English subtitles to really understand it. This doesn't cause much of a distraction though.
EnjoyableBy a customer from Lincoln, England , 15 Jan 2005Even if you haven't tried a subtitled film before do not let this put you off renting this DVD. The story is fun, the acting is very good, the car chases are excellent. Overall a great Film, watched it twice. I ended up buying it and Taxi 2 as well. Well worth watching
Brilliant!By Marian from London , 15 Dec 2004I thought this movie was fantastic in every way, great dialogue, great performances, great car chases!
Luc Besson never disappoints when it comes to entertaining!
