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.
John Travolta is a blast. Without him the film is "just" a disaster.
I refuse to believe there was any Love present in the making of this garbage. 18 Travoltas Down.

'From Paris With Love' only really popped up on my horizon due to the bus stop adverts currently running around town, featuring a goattee clad bald headed Travolta with what appears to be a rather large bazooka. Due to his Ming the Merciless style appearance, I jumped to the conclusion that he was the principal villain of the piece, taking poster precedence due to being a bigger star than Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Naturally I turned out to be wrong.
Sometimes it's a lot more fun going into a film knowing so little. After watching trailers multiple times and seeing the TV spots run endlessly, it's easy to write a basic outline of the movie before you've…
Que buena Jajajajaja me encanta Travolta
Vedere John Travolta nelle scene action è come vedere quel panzone di Russell Crowe in L'uomo dai Pugni di Ferro...insomma...na tristezza imbarazzante!
A movie that makes Travolta mention his special craving of "Royale with cheese" says everything about how recommendable it is. Not very much. Avoid if possible.

I napped in the middle, missed nothing and still gave it 4 stars. Now that's a Dad-movie.
Watching this flick just...felt horrible. Had to take a shower.
It shouts "It's me, Besson! Look at me! USA! Weapons, suits, terrorists, weak bitchy women! Gangsta kids, strange foreign dark skinned people!" It's more clichéd than Transporter!
Even Travolta couldn't save this stuff.
This was much more entertaining than I had anticipated. When it came out in theatres there wasn't much said about it and I didn't know anyone who went to see it. It's a shame as this is a pretty great spy/action movie. The leads are a good pairing and the chemistry between them is enjoyable. A fun thrill ride.
Pretty bad but entertaining nonetheless
