Goofs

While Mattei is in the hospital the retrospect shows a young boy wrapping the gun handle with electrical tape. The idea is to make it impossible for the police to pick up fingerprints after the killing. However, he's using the wrong kind of tape - the smooth one instead of the sticky rough one - which renders the whole process useless. See more »

Interesting thriller
24 October 2010 | by See all my reviews

I discovered this movie in a DVD store in South of France and after I watched the trailer and read the critics I gave it a try.

Well it is very interesting to see Kad Merad and Jean Reno in this underground thriller of the Marseillais mafia. I saw for the first time Kad Merad in a bad guy role and he played this one very convincing. Then Jean Reno was as usual great.

Director Richard Berry created here a fast paced thriller that was never boring. The pictures around Marseille and the sea were wonderful. The only thing I missed was that the story is told rather superficially. The act of revenges could have been executed variously than all the time in the same way.

My vote with my wife is a 7/10 because all in all it's another example how with a low budget a solid popcorn movie can be done. French movies are the best in Europe so far and sometimes even better than the other average Hollywood productions.
