To his family, François Voisin is nothing more than a humdrum civil servant. In truth, for the past twenty years he has been working as a crack secret agent. All goes well until François discovers that his son has been skipping school. Using all the resources at his disposal, the irate father tracks his son to find out where he goes when he is not in school. Then François learns that his wife Hélène is having an affair with another man. With the aid of the latest hi-tech surveillance equipment, the jealous husband finds that his rival is a second-hand car salesman masquerading as an international terrorist. To win back Hélène, François contrives an elaborate scheme in which she is coerced into playing the role of a secret agent herself. The scheme backfires badly, and François and Hélène end up in the hands of a ruthless terrorist group.Written by
This movie is better then True Lies in every aspect. YES True Lies had prob 10 times the budget this movie had, but I never bought into it.
We are supposed to believe that Arnold is a every day Joe, and that failed right away, and the movie fell apart.
This movie on the other hand has the same fun, and entertainment as the other, but you can actually get into the story and enjoy it, while the US remake keep slapping Hollywood in every scene, and soon enough your just washing another Arnold movie, kinda like they infused Commando into La Totale!.
This is the original one, and as expected, much better then a throw money at it remake, kinda like Star Wars ep 1.
