Could be better, but totally ruined with mambo-jumbo storyline
17 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, if we could divide a movie into two parts, then the first part of this French movie is just great. But the 2nd part of this movie, once the background scene moved to Africa, it gradually evolved into an absurd and bizarre dark continent mambo-jumbo, so crazy that human beings would become lion, panther and python...a snake man. An almost perfect and thrilling bank heist movie turned 180 degrees and became a dragging and ridiculous street firefight.

There is a funny scene in this movie that an original hush-hush whisper could be bloated into a huge rumor. A small bag of precious stones could gradually become 20 kilos diamonds from mouth to mouth, ear to ear.

This is a big shame and living example that a movie could be better and even great, but regretfully lost focus and turned itself into an absurd farce.
