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
The car chase was filmed on a new motorway outside of the town of Annecy which had yet to be opened to the public. Eagle-eyed viewers might be able to guess this as, in most of the shots, there is no traffic traveling in the opposite direction. The fact of not having traffic on that direction was previously justified as having the highway locked for the arrival of the diplomatic convoy. See more »

Thank you, Cindy.
African Aid Summit prep meeting with the Foreign Minister tomorrow at noon, Summit Conference on Wednesday, G8 Undersecretary conference dinner on Thursday, and a reception for the Secretary of State Friday, sir.
Can't you see we have more urgent matters to consider, Reece?

Of course, sir.

Must you always be so methodical?

Silly violent action film which takes the name of Paris in vain
Lots of exploding cars, a hundred people or so get killed, many mown down in hails of gunfire, blood spatters all over people's faces, drugs, terrorists, it's all in there in a great hodgepodge of nothingness. This film is said to be based on a story by Luc Besson. I'd keep that quiet if I were Besson, as it's nothing to be proud of. The lead role is played by John Revolta, who is unspeakably hideous to look at and as usual unremittingly disgusting, vulgar, and obscene. If that's your thing, well by the way it's in English and we don't see much of Paris besides some badly-shot footage from inside a moving car, and a few stock shots with the Eiffel Tower in the background (for those who can't read five-letter words beginning with P, the name of a capital city in France, uhhhh ..)
