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 »

A "Taxi"-movie without a single actual car chase in it? Seriously Luc Besson, at least pretend to care. Yet another top criminal is on the loose, and the ways of capturing these villains get less inventive with every new sequel. In this one they really just shadow him for a while to find out where he lives and then they like, go there, end movie. Quite a stretch from the hilarious ending to the original I'd say. Nobody bothered to come up with jokes, so they just exaggerate every character and hope somebody laughs at that. The little realism the series had in the first place is all gone, but hey at least we get some retarded cartoon slapstick to even it out. It appears that the makers also realised what a dud they were making, so they crammed in a cameo by soccer star Djibril Cissé that has absolutely no connection to the plot. How sad is it that these truly desperate unrelated scenes are actually the highlights of the movie? Not that they're any good, but they do have Djibril Cissé. Better pray they'll leave "Taxi 5" in the fridge.
