Did You Know?


The name of Nika Boronina's (Olga Kurylenko) squirrel/chipmunk, Tishka, is the Russian variation of the English Timothy, which means, "He who honors God." See more »


Like many other movies portraying Interpol agents many mistakes are made concerning how Interpol works and operates. For example Interpol officers do not directly conduct inquiries in member countries and Interpol's constitution forbids its involvement in several types of crimes, such as political ones.

Quite a good movie. I enjoyed it.
7 January 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

My first big question is: - Was this movie originally produced in French? It seemed to me that the Lip-sync was totally English, although I was told that it was produced in French. Technology has improved so much, so please let me know. The action scenes were fantastic. Very interesting storyline, but it was funny how they all dropped their guns and fought with their hands. I liked Olyphant for Agent 47, but I think he could have showed more action. He was a bit laughable at times. However, it was fun looking at the film. I did not expect too much when I started looking at the movie, but I must say that the action was placed at the right time, so it kept me interested. I also liked very much the girl, Nika, if I did, then I am sure she was a favourite.
