Storyline

While a terrorist epidemy strikes the world leaders, the commissaire San-Antonio and his partner, the lieutenant Bérurier, have to escort the French ambassador in a British hotel. But after a negligence of Bérurier (one more little sex affair...), San-Antonio witnessed, helpless, to the ambassador's abduction, organized by a gorgeous Italian girl. Back to Paris, San-Antonio is dismissed by the police chief, Achille Hachille. A real godsend for Bérurier, who get promoted... But soon, the situation degenerates, when the president of the Republic mysteriously disappears. Immediate reaction from Police Minister : San-Antonio is the only one who can save the day. He has 48 hours and a secret squad to find the president. At the Elysée, San-Antonio finds Bérurier, the official investigator. But now, it's every man for himself : who will be the first to find the President ? There are multiple trails: terrorists, unscrupulous banks, international dealers, dishonest politicians, pretty woman ... Written by Sylvain Larue

a lot to think about while watching,a lot to watch while thinking !!!
27 July 2006 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I really like movies like this I guess I better explain my opinion...

In this movie I saw : - action - fun - surprise - a great plot - guns/explosions - fast cars/pretty girls - good actors

that's why this is much better than most American action movies !

it's such an improved 007 movie. there's a lot to think about while watching and there's a lot to watch while u think !!!

people who criticize movies like this better try to understand why they are unable to appreciate it.

It's a huge problem of taste skill,many people are not able to love a good movie anymore

many other action movies are as "original" and "tasty" as a Mac Donalds hamburger is...San Antonio is a real meal,different tastes,maybe you will not like all of them separate from the others,but you will definitely appreciate the whole thing !

:-)

take care

Matt
