Bastille Day review – Idris Elba takes down the terrorists

21 April 2016 2:45 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Richard Madden plays a hapless pickpocket and Elba a macho CIA agent in this competent popcorn-flavoured thriller

Related: Robert Downey Jr is back for Sherlock 3 and Spider-Man, and Bastille Day reviewed – the Dailies film podcast

With a rooftop chase scene as good as anything in Bourne, Bastille Day is a serviceably brash thriller. It’s a bit silly maybe, with a plot that requires you to overlook the implausibility of a certain smartphone with no passcode protection. But there is a nifty premise. In modern-day Paris, a young American pickpocket called Michael (played by Richard Madden, from Game of Thrones) is mingling discreetly with the tourists and stealing their wallets and watches; things are going well for him until he pinches a bag belonging to a beautiful and upset-looking young woman called Zoe (Charlotte Le Bon). The bag contains a ticking bomb, because Zoe is a terrorists’ accomplice who had »

Bastille Day movie review: French toast

21 April 2016 8:26 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A fake movie busted out into reality! But this not-even would-be jokey riff on Hollywood doesn’t know how to fill the air between car chases and punchups. I’m “biast” (pro): Idris Elba is badass (this is Fact)

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It’s like a fake movie within a real movie somehow busted out into the real world. Jumped off the shelves of the video rental store in The Lost World: Jurassic Park and wished itself real, perhaps. Like Pinocchio. Bastille Day! Starring Idris Elba and that one guy from Game of Thrones who got killed off like three years ago! Grab a holiday that no one has yet foisted a movie plot onto, toss in a badass actor ready for his action-hero breakout, give him a bland sidekick, set it in a recognizable but still slightly exotic location, »

Film Review: ‘Bastille Day’

19 April 2016 3:45 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As fans continue their push for Idris Elba to fill Daniel Craig’s 007-sized shoes, they could point to far worse case studies for his suitability than “Bastille Day.” The hulking East Londoner may sport a Generican accent as a rogue CIA agent in James Watkins’ efficiently entertaining terrorist thriller, but in all other respects, he proves himself fighting fit for action-franchise duty: gravelly enough to lend this absurd Paris-set romp some gravitas, though he can wink and kick ass at the same time. While the pic pairs him with an affable partner in “Game of Thrones” alum Richard Madden, the standard-issue script doesn’t give their burgeoning buddy dynamic much kindling; instead, it’s Watkins’ lean, keen instinct for choreographing and cutting action set pieces that keeps “Bastille Day” afloat. Even if auds don’t exactly storm the gates, it’ll march on in ancillary.

Idris Elba Takes Aim In New Poster For Parisian Thriller Bastille Day

9 March 2016 2:44 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Having headlined British crime drama Luther for three seasons, Idris Elba simply disappears into the role of a gruff and steely secret agent, and that’s exactly the archetype he’ll be portraying in James Watkins’ Parisian thriller, Bastille Day.

Watkins, best known for helming Eden Lake and Daniel Radcliffe-fronted horror flick The Woman In Black, is switching gears to dip his toe in the spy thriller genre. Elba, meanwhile, leads the charge as Sean Briar, the CIA’s top dog that’s dispatched on a mission to the French capital, only to unearth a seedy conspiracy that stretches far above anything he could’ve imagined.

In his journey, Briar crosses paths with professional trickster Michael Mason – played by Richard Madden of Game of Thrones – eventually deciding to team up with the crook to form an unlikely team.

Bastille Day will open on April 22 in the United Kingdom. Kelly Reilly »

'Bastille Day' Trailer Shows Why Idris Elba Should Be James Bond

16 February 2016 11:43 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in 2014, a rumor surfaced that Idris Elba was being sought to play the new James Bond, after Daniel Craig leaves the 007 franchise. While it has never been confirmed that Sony and MGM have been considering Idris Elba to take over as the iconic secret agent, fans will get to see the actor display his spy skills in a new action-thriller entitled Bastille Day. StudioCanal UK has released a new international trailer featuring the first action-packed footage.

The story centers on Michael Mason (Richard Madden, Game of Thrones), an American pickpocket living in Paris who finds himself in the hands of the CIA when he steals a bag that contains more than just a wallet. Sean Briar (Idris Elba, Avengers: Age of Ultron), the field agent on the case, soon realizes that Michael is just a pawn in a much bigger game and is also his best asset to uncover »

Richard Madden And Idris Elba Find Themselves On Opposing Sides Of The Law In Trailer For Bastille Day

16 February 2016 10:23 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It wasn’t too long ago that Idris Elba’s name was mentioned in the same breath as a certain James Bond, and today’s trailer for action-thriller Bastille Day has the British actor doing his best impression of a 00-agent.

He’s up against it, too, squaring off against former King of the North Richard Madden (Game of Thrones), who hails from the opposite side of the law as an American pickpocket. What Elba’s former CIA agent comes to realize, though, is that Madden’s lowly thief is just one pawn on a much larger, crime-ridden chess board.

A tried and tested formula, sure, but there’s fleeting signs of Elba and Madden’s budding chemistry included in today’s trailer, which really ought to elevate the drama above its genre contemporaries.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Michael Mason (Richard Madden, Game Of Thrones) is an American pickpocket »

First Trailer for French Action Movie 'Bastille Day' Starring Idris Elba

16 February 2016 7:18 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You really should think about anger management. You're reckless, and irresponsible, you can't just run and start firing." Studiocanal UK has debuted an official trailer for the French action movie Bastille Day, starring the always-awesome Idris Elba as a former CIA agent who goes to Paris, France to help with an anti-terrorism mission. However, as the quote above mentions, he seems to be more reckless than helpful. The cast includes Kelly Reilly and Charlotte Le Bon. This looks like it has some solid action, but more than anything it's great to watch Idris Elba kickin' some ass. I'm interested in checking this out. Take a look. Here's the first trailer for James Watkins & Jill Gagé's Bastille Day, direct from YouTube: A young artist and former CIA agent embark on an anti-terrorist mission in France.

Watch: Action Erupts In First Trailer For 'Bastille Day' Starring Idris Elba

16 February 2016 5:03 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While Idris Elba seems perpetually poised to become the next huge thing, with the internet pushing for him to become the next James Bond, and a string of blockbusters on the way including "The Jungle Book," "Finding Dory," "Star Trek Beyond," and likely "The Dark Tower" — not to mention ongoing acclaim for his turn in "Beasts Of No Nation" — the actor still has to do meat-and-potatoes work from time to time. For example, last year he had a role in the already forgotten Sean Penn flick "The Gunman," and this year he tops the regular-looking action movie, "Bastille Day."
