Offbeat action movie by Giovanni
16 June 2012 | by avezou1See all my reviews

First half of the movie is quite messy. Action is a bit rushed at times, characters are not very well portrayed, and dialog is too elliptic to grab the viewer's attention.

The second half (from the attack of the 'prison') is better. Impressive climbing sequences, better interaction between the members of the squad, beautiful Mediterranean landscapes... Donnadieu, Brasseur and Anglade in particular do a much better job.

Overall a good time-filler.

But Giovanni has done far better. The movie was not very well received in France. With more depth, it would probably have been more memorable.
