Good movie, give it a try
5 July 2004 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

I also do not understand the poor comments I see here. I just watched "Provocateur" and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I'd have to go buy a film student's textbook to see if it is full of genre cliche's or not--if I care to.

Even though the bonehead earlier gave away the ending, it was still filled with tension for me--because I cared about the characters.

I think this is as good as "The Bourne Identity." Not as much action, it's got more drama, but I prefer that anyway.

I must admit the front cover of the video looks extremely like "La Femme Nikita," though. They should put this on DVD.
