Unlucky, clumsy, charming Marseile PD detective Émilien Coutant-Kerbalec must assist worse-then-Clouseau commissioner Gibert guarding a Belgian criminal reputed as dangerous as - and caged like Hannibal Lector. Émilien's cool friend, taxi driver Daniel Morales, initially only agrees to babysit both their buddy-sons, as Émilien's wife Petra is away on top-secret mission. But soon the Belgian escapes, and while chasing him the mates stumble on a bank robbery and a drug king's palatial villa, where the grand finale reeks havoc. Written by
Daniel's Taxi is a Peugeot 407, replacing the Phase 1 and Phase 2 Peugeot 406 models used in the first three films. It's likely to be the 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine, though unusually the highest performance model in the range was a diesel. Most of the Marseilles police fleet in the film is also made up of Peugeots, mostly the 206 and 307, while Commissaire Gibert's car is a 607. See more »
Commissaire Gibert fires an LMC-X10 rocket launcher originally with 9 rockets. He only fires five rockets (the first through the window, the second hitting the safe, the third hitting the statue in front of the pool, and the fourth and fifth were fired in air and swirled to hit the second floor supports) but when he is done the rocket launcher is shown with three rockets remaining instead of four.

Disappointing but still likable fourth chapter in the series, with Emma Sjöberg at her hottest
The fourth and last (so far) entry in the long-running "Taxi" series is a mild disappointment. There are few car-chase-and-crash thrills, and lengthy talky passages have taken their place. Instead of a climactic chase, we get a belated "Scarface" parody. However, the enduring appeal of these characters, some good laughs ("Yes, the Belgian confessed everything. We used the opportunity to close a few other cases, too!"), and a fun cameo for football (soccer, for Americans) fans at the start help keep this sequel painless. One of its best points by far is the return of Emma Sjöberg as Petra. In this one, she goes undercover as a brunette, and she reminded me of Jennifer Garner in one of her "Alias" disguises. In fact, considering her Amazonian looks and matching fighting abilities (briefly shown here, but showcased better in "Taxi 2") it's a wonder that her film career basically consists only of this series and a Dennis Rodman vehicle.
