We have our man.
Profile? He's a cop? Where did you find him, Algeria?
He's a good cop... and he's French.
Excellent record. Single, very discreet. Works in anti-gang, good agent.
Fine, get him ready for action.

Go Fast slang for an almost non-stop narcotics delivery is a competent but unexceptional undercover cop thriller from Luc Besson's production company that recycles all the staple clichés of the genre in a fairly glossy package that's as easy to watch as it is to forget. Roschdy Zem is the undercover man who gets transferred after his partner is killed by a Go Fast gang and, wouldn't you know it, finds himself hired as a driver by the same gang of international drug traffikers responsible and teamed up with the guys who shot his partner and can't quite place where they've seen his face before. Despite taking in the Banlieues of Clichy, the hashish fields of Morocco and the highways of Spain and France, this is no Traffik, more a strictly by the numbers one-note effort that at times plays like a modern day update of those 40s 'Your Tax Dollars at Work'-style American B-movies extolling the virtues of the Treasury/Immigration/Homicide Department it loves showing off the hi-tech equipment and comically gruelling training - but without the kind of edge they'd occasionally bring to the material. Perhaps its major achievement is making the film seem fast-paced when in reality surprisingly little happens in the way of plot developments or even action to its somewhat monolithic characters (if you're looking for character development, you've definitely come to the wrong movie). There's one neat moment swapping a pair of cars around and having a song on the radio trigger one crucial memory is a nice touch, but otherwise it's professionally executed, but unmistakeably average.
