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 »

Great ride
16 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

The Immortal tells the story of an older man, Charly Matteï, who claims to have quit the mafia in Marseille, France. He has a family and lives in peace, but is suddenly shot in a serious hit. Charly is shot 22 times but, amazingly, survives. After the hit and recovery, the scarred ex-mafioso is thirsty for a bloody revenge. What follows is an intense, action-packed and bloody thriller.

The story is quite simple and The Immortal definitely has it's flaws, but overall it is an awesome ride. Jean Reno is back on track in this great French production. The Immortal may not be as good as Un Prophet but could definitely become a cult classic like the first Boondock Saints. 7/10
