Improbable, but entertaining!
24 February 2006 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Belmondo plays this guy your not sure he's good or bad. Or he might just be the ugly. One thing's for sure, he uses humor, charm and bravado to achieve what he wants. And what he wants is justice. But justice for whom? That's what Lautner wants us to find out. Belmondo is superb in his role. There's so many French films about the police. Some of them are mediocre. This is a good one. Interesting use of the split screen and the camera play. And it really takes a while to know for sure in which camp falls Belmondo's character.

Seen at home, in Toronto, on February 24th, 2006.

79/100 (***)
