Trivia

'Richard Berry' (av) originally wanted to hire James Newton Howard to compose the film's music, but eventually set his sights on Klaus Badelt after he was advised to listen to the music he composed for Anything for Her (2008). After meeting with Badelt and showing him the film when he learned the composer was in Paris, Berry was pleasantly surprised to hear him say that it was him who was asking to score the movie, not the other way around.

Great ride
16 May 2010 | by (Netherlands) – 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
