This film is about a French diplomat and a translator going onto a trip to save a special chip from hands of foreign governments.
The initial 10 minutes look very promising, with a James Bond style opening. I really like the soundtrack too. However, the story quickly becomes implausible, but it is still entertaining to watch. This film has a big budget, and hence has helicopters, nice hotels, classical mansions. Even if the story is less than perfect, it is still pleasing to watch. Though this film is a little lousy, but it is still watchable for some brain off entertainment. I think this film deserves higher points than a 3.6.
