Charly Mattei has turned a new leaf on his past as an outlaw. For the past three years he's been living a comfortable life and devoting himself to his wife and two kids. However, one winter morning, he's left for dead in the underground parking garage of Marseille's Old Port with 22 bullets in his body. Against all odds, he will not die. Written by
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 »
Brilliant performance by Jean Reno in a fun and surprising film.
Richard Berry we given away with a good selection of French detective films with anti-heroes faced their own destiny but willing to redeem himself. Jean Reno plays a former mob vengeance.
Richard Berry, director of "La Boite Noire", 2005, environmental "L'Bullets" in the port city of Marseille stained by the gangsters who control the power of drug trafficking, the core of the hurricane that will facilitate the match between the characters played by Reno and Merad. The first plays Charlie Mattei, a "Capo" retired looking to restore new life raising a family, and has offered some of his power that had been his best friend, the ambitious and ruthless Tony Zacchia provided to forget the drug trade. But Zacchia, orders his men to pepper shot. Charlie miraculously lives at 22 bullets embedded in his body he so chooses to end the matter while being watched by the police officer Marie Goldman (Marina Foïs), widow of an officer killed in the grip of local mafia.
In the film we see a brilliant performance by the brilliant Jean Reno, but does not avoid comparisons with the character of the hired murderer he played in "Lion" 1994, one of the successes of Luc Besson in the direction. Despite the contradiction we have a good performance, with action worthy of the best films of Hollywood and a great photograph wrapped with a story that entertains and surprises with an ending that many viewers want to see about a criminal, not a bad person
