Ha-ha-ha-ha, oh yes, Marseille is complicated. Full of small streets. And you'll see that the cells aren't big either.

This is definitely better than the original, it's more efficiently directed, faster in pace and funnier. The plot may be predictable, there are occasional moments of weak dialogue and Marion Cotilard who was so sublime as Edith Piaf in La Vie En Rose is given little to do as Lilly. That said, it is very funny, with some good gags. Plus the french locations are stunning, the car chases are awesome and the martial arts sequences are absolutely great. Other pluses are the snappy direction, a cool soundtrack and a smoking hot Emma Sjoberg (aka Wiklund). Also the pace is faster, and other than Sjoberg another standout was Bernard Farcy as Chief Inspector Gilbert who was hilarious at times. All in all, this is a fun sequel, and better than the first film in my opinion. 7/10 Bethany Cox
