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!

why dubbing?By a customer from Sheffield , 04 May 2008I really wanted to see this film as it looked fun and had heard from friends it was a good fast action film. What a pity I received a dubbed version!!! It was completely distracting, and spoiled what looked like a pretty good film. I did not ask for a dubbed version and can only say I'm really disappointed, the film itself looked like a laugh, but was in desperate need of french accents....mon dieu!!!
OuiBy a customer from Belfast , 17 Apr 2008A good film , the French love of stunt work and their reputation as the best stunt drivers in the world shows.
A daft script and some daft action but all in a good enough film.
Poor!By a customer from Exeter , 11 Apr 2008This film just never got going! After all the expectations, very dissapointing.
TaxiBy Fitz (3 reviews) from Stratford-Upon-Avon , 15 Mar 2008Couldn't watch it as the film was dubbed into English even though it was listed as a film in French with English subtitles!
FantasticBy nkuruba (9 reviews) from Edinburgh , 12 Mar 2008Luc Besson rocks. This highly entertaining film with great dialogue is brilliant. Made me smile. Good job it had the english subtitles with french coz the english dubbed version scared me.
