Jean-Marc Barr's character is none other than Hugo Toorop, the character played by Vin Diesel in Babylon A.D. See more »


When Alice fires her handgun (a semi-automatic) even tho shot in slow-motion, the slide doesn't move back. This is a simple identifiable function of this sort of weapon which is shot in slow-mo intentionally in many other films for it's dramatic effect. Instead, Alice jerks the weapon back as if it were fired, and the target is magically struck by a bullet that could not have come from Alice's gun. See more »

Good French action film
21 August 2002 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

This is the kind of movie that allow me to say that French directors are able to make as good action movies as American ones. It's perhaps not so good as "Leon" or "Nikita" from Besson, but it's a new director : Megaton. The fact is that there are not as much electronics gadgets as in American movies, but we can see very nice pictures.
