Storyline

James Reece is an ambitious aide to the U.S. Ambassador in Paris, doing little jobs for the CIA and hoping to get into black ops. On the night he and his girlfriend, Caroline, become engaged, he's told to pick up Charlie Wax at Orly. Charlie is an unorthodox government employee - large, bald and bearded, foul-mouthed and eccentric. Charlie immediately takes James on a wild ride of murder and mayhem, through ethnic enclaves. As bodies pile up, the purpose remains opaque to James. Caroline, unhappy that James has been out of touch for a day, tells him to bring Charlie for dinner. Charlie can be charming - where will it lead? Does the chess-playing James have what it takes? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Score one in the good "buddy movie" column!
12 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a big fan of a well done buddy movie and From Paris With Love is just that. John Travolta is a flamboyant, nearly uncontrollable secret agent who gets paired up with Johnathen Rhys Myers, a wannabe spy working as assistant to the U.S. ambassador to France. Travolta definitely steals the show in this film, what super agent doesn't? Gun fighting, super karate, rappelling, extreme driving, and almost precognitive planning, Travolta's character does it all. Myers, for the most part, is along for the ride, asking questions and providing the audience with someone to relate to as the action keeps rolling. From Paris With Love is a fast-paced movie that is funny and action packed, both hallmarks of a well done buddy movie, one that i will definitely be adding to my collection.
