From Paris with Love
Two agents. One city. No merci.
While working at the American embassy in Paris, low-level intelligence agent James Reece gets involved in espionage when he's pulled into a terrorist plot by high-ranking but uncouth American operative Charlie Wax, who's trying to stop it.
If I had directed this film, the first thing I would have done was demand that both the main actors shave. Their facial hair is the worst. Travolta's evil goatee looks like it is either dyed, or fake, and Rhy Meyers barely there upper lip & chin scruff is simply terrible.
Apart from my problems with the facial hair, I actually have a lot of fun with this film. The story is pretty much nonsensical, but who needs story when there is so much pointless killing going on. I think technically Travolta's character Charlie Wax could be charged with multiple counts of murder, as he kills many unarmed people in the film, when arresting them would have made more sense. I…
rewatched because i wanted to see if i was right in my suspicions about Pierre Morel being a total hack, but had no memory of this. i was. this guy makes seven cuts when one will do, and as one of EuropaCorp's house assholes, he's fond of cutting away from impacts in favor of an illusion of speed. in fairness there's one decent shootout in an apartment building, but we're looking at two minutes out of 90-plus.
and speaking as a fan of manic Travolta performances, he's overdoing it here. look only to BROKEN ARROW or FACE/OFF to see the real thing. and fuck you for the Royale with Cheese joke.
while i'm at it, this is also generally racist and misogynist...every villain is either middle-eastern or asian or a woman. Luc Besson is a thoughtcriminal.
No amount of bald, goatee wearing, foul mouthed, ludicrously overacting Travolta can save this film from being the boring and predictable waste of time that it is.
Oh dear, whoever picked that stunt man to mimic John Travolta must have been fucking blind.
I refuse to believe there was any Love present in the making of this garbage. 18 Travoltas Down.
John Travolta is a blast. Without him the film is "just" a disaster.
Um bom exemplo de filme de ação, com sequências de lutas, tiros e perseguições, o filme tem um ritmo bem frenético! John Travolta (agora careca) rouba totalmente a cena no filme fazendo um personagem engraçado e ao mesmo tempo total brucutu. Como todo filme do gênero, tem alguns furos no roteiro e peca nos diálogos, mas isso é compensado com uma pequena dose de humor que ganha o público! Enfim, no geral "From Paris with Love" é um filme de ação acima da média!
Guter Aktionstreifen für Zwischendurch! ;)
it s fast paced, aggressive and it has a ultra cool j travolta. i enjoyed this one a lot for a semi b flick!
One of the many Luc Besson-produced trashy B-movie action-comedies made in the past few years, this one with Jonathan Rhys-Myers as a political aide partnered with gleeful loose cannon operative John Travolta to kill some bad guys for some dumb reason. It's fun in a quick fast-food way, nothing special, nothing new, but very fast-paced and to the point with a couple of badass moments and a mostly light-hearted tone. Travolta, whose limited range seems to have been whittled down to an exact science by the filmmakers who cast him, here recycles his gabby, cackling, fun-loving, unflappable evil mastermind seen in "Broken Arrow", his Castor Troy scenes in "Face/Off", and last year's "The Talking of Pelham 123" remake, only now…
That movie where John Travolta pays tribute to Steven Seagal and Vin Diesel.
this movie sucked real bad. fuck scientology. dumbass motherfucking fat bastard john travolta, you haven't been good sfince broken arrow, pulp fiction + MAYBE face/off.
I think this is trying to be a wild and kooky version of Taken??? I've got news for you, Taken wasn't that great to begin with and add to that a scenery chewing John Travolta and all you get is a complete mess.
This movie takes on a whole new meaning in light of recent events.
This movie is so full of crap. Travolta repeating his Royale with cheese line was absolutely over the limit. You could see how Jonathan Rhys Meyers didn't know how to react to that nonsense. Pretty impressive to see how boring an action movie can be.
Tonight I'm gonna see Spectre. With these low expectations of a decent action film that one can't go wrong.
