The movie is exactly as bad as I hoped. My first choice fully booked, I thought I might give another try to this very particular style of French cinema. The feeling you get after watching Taxi 3 is that it's shaped for the young French teenagers, floating in cars and rap music. The result is a confusion of styles, mix of fat jokes, soup of rap beats, an easygoing story that is undoubtedly a pale and far copy of the first episode.
The producers in the end have their investment back. A stupid and light French commercial movie, where you feel that money was saved in the case of a failure. What it should be... Besson is sadly too much commited with money and intellectual poverty.
