Paris Flic (french term for cop) and computer-crack David Ackermann is a teacher at the academy advising the rookies in computer-crime (how to fight it of course, mainly with it's own weapons). By coincidence Informations about personalities from the high-politics and police-authorities that are involved in organized crime fall into his hands. From than on he's been chased merciless, even having his ex-wife kidnapped to blackmail him. With the help from his new girlfriend (played by Carole Bouquet, the bolt-thrower-beauty from 007-For Your Eyes Only"; sigh...) he lashes back.
Though the plot appeares conventional (indeed there are remote similarities to Berry's movie Urgence") the movie is still today a solid thriller. The two leading acts are playing very well and are for both male and female viewers something to look for. The action and suspense are the straight french-school from the 80s, that if you know and expect it, might like anyway. I do. Particularly the power-lift scene in the garage and the closing-scene are though no real surprise- from the quite satisfying kind. The french film-industry owes David Ackermann still a sequel !
