A gun-for-hire known only as Agent 47 hired by a group known only as 'The Organization' is ensnared in a political conspiracy, which finds him pursued by both Interpol and the Russian military as he treks across Russia and Eastern Europe.
Gravity or Police, these guys don't believe in any law. Idolised by the youth of Paris as much as they're hated by the police, they are the Yamakasis, modern samurais. With acrobatic skillfulness and adrenaline pumping belief in their own immortality, they throw themselves out from incredible heights, and jump from roof to roof. Locked doors and "No Trespassing"-signs become irresistible challenges. But one day, whilst mimicking one of the Yamakasi's more dangerous stunts, a young fan gets injured. Only one operation can save the boy, an operation that his family can't afford. Written by

Often mistaken for Japanese, the word yamakasi is actually taken from the Lingala language, which is spoken in the two Congos. Ya makási can mean "strong body, strong spirit, strong person", though in French usage its meaning is closer to "high energy". See more »
At around the 48th minute of the film, when there is a dog chase in the richly decorated house, two members of the crew are visible with their heads jumping out on each side of the screen. See more »
I honestly don't understand why so many people complain about this movie. It doesn't take itself that seriously, so why should you?
A few examples you ask? To the people who have been b*tching in earlier comments, and to those who agree, here goes:
Wrong message/example? What the f*ck about Robin Hood? That story is
regarded classic and rightly so, modern times - modern solutions...
Weak story/plot? True, true, but that is not what this movie is about.
It's lighthearted and humorous. Look at it that way.
Threatening people with guns? Please, have you even watched the movie?
They use a gun, which they obtained from someone who was shooting them, once and they're not aiming at a person.
I don't even wanna elaborate on everything else. Why not? I enjoyed the movie because of the fast pace, good soundtrack and the seemingly (try it yourself and find out!) easy stunts. Add the fact that only one of the seven main characters (Yann Hnautre) has ever played in more than one movie, they're not doing a bad job.
If you're looking for a fun way to spend 90 minutes, go see it, if you only expect to pay for good movies (hint: read some of the other comments for this movie), go and see it anyway. If you wanna nitpick about everything that does or doesn't occur in a movie, see it and go b*tch about it.
