The only really amazing thing about this film is that Jean Paul Belmondo isn't in it as it would be typical of his films in the 80s. Okay, the film is pretty crude and violent but also fairly enjoyable. There is not much of a story: bad guys kidnap tough cops' family and he tries to save them by teaming up with a hit man. Sardou is Cross is about as much cliché of a cop as any man can possibly be. But the action is pretty good and the scenes at the dilapidated hotel at night are atmospheric and full of suspense. From my point of view this film is pretty much a Budd Boetticher B-western set in 1980s France. Watch out though: the DVD version is heavily edited.
