Good, but..., 5 August 2008
Author: konya-s from Hungary

...could have been much better if the director (Alain Delon) can handle the atmosphere of the film. I mean...There is no atmosphere in the movie and that's the single problem with Le Battant. Otherwise it's a pretty good, hard boiled revenge-flick, and in some scenes reminded me Mel Gibson's little thriller called Payback. Alain Delon is cool, he's a silent murderer in this movie, he didn't give a damn about anybody, he slaps the poor girl when the situation needs it, so he's just a cold blooded killer who's only interested in his freedom and the money he deserved. The story has some twist (but nothing special), some violence, but as I said before it could have been much better.
