But one day, a man called Manuel Carrega tells Franck Adrien that Jean-Louis Maurel is suspected serial killer and that Franck Adriens family might be in danger. Franck Adrien escapes from prison and police officer Claire Linné and her team takes up the chase. Written by
I am English and while we once had the knack of making action movies that are believable we have gradually become a poor man's Hollywood. The French have taken the cop show action movie and made it their own. On TV we have the Spiral series and now this.
The star is a true indestructible bouncing along on adrenalin and feeling the pain. He is driven by all too human emotion and one wills him on to succeed.
France is lucky to have lots of good locations and the driving around fits into the plot rather than being a cheap way to fill in the minutes.
This is a simpler story that Luc Besson's Crimson Rivers films but just as suspenseful and exciting.
The best film I have seen fie a few years.
