Rewatched Apr 14, 2012
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 guess if I was a secret agent with a license to kill I would exploit it to, so I want judge Mr. Wax too harshly.
From Paris with Love is on all accounts a terrible film.Travolta looks as ridiculous as he acts in the film, but in my eyes it kind of works. Basically I view this film the same way a mother might view her own ugly, unwanted child who just took crayons and drew penises all over the walls. There are many, many, many things wrong with it, but in the end, I still have to say that I love it.
