Trivia

In the beginning of the movie, Ousmane played by Omar Sy and François Monge (Laurent Lafitte) visit president Chaligny (André Marcon) in a noble restaurant to inform him about his wife's murder. The exact same house, where this scene takes place, was used in another movie The Intouchables (2011) featuring again Omar Sy in the role of Driss. In The Intouchables (2011) this property was owned by and a home to rich quadriplegic Philippe Pozzo di Borgo played by François Cluzet, whom Driss was a caretaker of. Though The Intouchables (2011) was filmed more than a year before this movie, the building's interior and exterior decorations, including paintings and ornamental bushes outside the entrance, look exactly the same.

French Fried.
16 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

I just watched this to see how well the French could do ripping off your run-of-the-mill American black cop/white cop buddy movie, a la (see that's French) "48 hours", "Lethal weapon", and such. Sad to say, it is a disappointment.

I had really high hopes that the French would bring something new to the genre, most hopefully some witty sophistication, but instead this film is slow, lifeless, disjointed, and just plain doesn't work.

The French humor is beyond subtle, it's hiding better than Waldo. The two "buddy" cops never develop any realistic chemistry, and the movie can't seem to figure out what it wants to be or say.

The film clearly seems to be trying to start a franchise, in the manner of the successful aforementioned American movies of this kind, but with an opening like this, it's not surprising that that plan never got off of the ground.

Very hard for me to believe that the French have made a worse movie than your typical major Hollywood studio, but somehow they have. Too much wine or cheese or something, I don't know.
