In the movie,Maxime (François Cluzet) epitomizes the French dream: a very successful car dealer,he's just been awarded a prize,he lives in a desirable mansion and his wife is so attractive all people around envy him.
But his associate was doing very bad things behind his back and when he gets killed by gangsters ,his cozy world collapses.But as such is often the case,if we are to believe the screenwriters,a quiet chic well-respected man can turn overnight into a formidable Rambo,able to wield a weapon as a sniper.
The script is abysmal and we feel sorry for Cluzet whose part is really beneath him.The highlight ,so to speak,is a chase in the snowy forests of Finland (?).
