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's a total mess...
4 July 2010 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

I can't imagine how dumber a mindless action film could ever be. This is the bottom line. A movie to be taught in universities for how it shouldn't be.

And what was all that stuff about non-European & non-Americans? All of them? It's like the movie script could be degraded to a single line:

"Your problem is you're all foreigners!"

All those little details in the film made me sick because of their shallowness. I think they're all there just for decoration purposes and to cover the absurdity of the script.

Never gonna watch a Travolta film again, never wanna see a Besson DVD near my player again. Ever...
