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>

It does go "Boom"
19 October 2010 | by See all my reviews

And it does do that quite a lot. Story? Believable action/human beings? Don't bother looking for them here. Because if you do bother, than you will be more than disappointed, as many reviews have shown here. Don't think this is another Leon either. This is far removed from Leon. And don't read too much into the nationalities of the characters, if that is possible.

After all this is just a movie. An action movie at that. And it does deliver on exactly that. Now maybe John Travolta wouldn't have been my first choice for the lead, maybe our lead man could've been better "fleshed" out. Maybe there are a few coincidences too much. But do you really care, if the action is shot as good as this? That comes down to your taste I guess. But you have been "warned" and you should know what you're letting yourself into.

Don't expect anything this isn't (I have to admit, the first time I heard the title, I thought this would be a romantic comedy, though it is reminiscent of Bond movies ... don't compare it to them either!) and there is a chance you will enjoy this very much (if it is your cup of tea of course).
