Almost as entertaining as True Lies
20 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

Being a huge Schwarzenegger fan and of the film True Lies, catching this on SBS one night was truly a bizarre and entertaining experience. Cameron heavily based True Lies on this film and many of the classic gags and subplots are right here and it's fun to watch them in their original form.

But enough comparisons, as a standalone film this is very entertaining. The performance by Lhermitte is fantastic and so is that of his sidekick, Mitchell. Miou Miou (I say these names as I know the actors well, which I certainly don't!) gives a humourous performance as the clueless wife. And Michel Boujenah's Simon is every bit as sleazy as Bill Paxton in the remake, perhaps even better!

If you're a fan of True Lies or good world cinema in general and have a chance to see this, make sure you do.
