Frantic ★★★

Frantic has euro flavour, Ford in full fruity mode, an alluringly free spirited Seigner and a strong opening hook. The movie lost me slightly about half way through, strangely about the time Michelle turned up, and couldn’t drag me back for the finale but there is a lot to enjoy, including Harrison getting his crazy on before being karate kicked in the chops, a funky cobra dance and the stupidest car chase I've seen in an age.

And I'm not sure what it says about French work ethic in the 80's but everybody; government agents, mules, drug dealers, taxi drivers, terrorists, cops, save that helpful desk clerk, are so goddamn awful at their jobs. Ohh la la!
