But after that, the chip explodes. The arms dealer Viktor Zilenko is ready to return the stolen gadget only under the warranty of Konsha. Konsh will give Zilenko a code for a safe with money in exchange for a syringe with a microchip. But a straightforward operation is unexpectedly complicated by the intervention of a translator assigned to Conch. He begins to lead his game .

Appalling
26 June 2006 | by Asterix-3See all my reviews

Based on the threadbare wheeze of a comical characters duet, this movie features an awful upper-class secret agent teaming up accidentally with an easily-corrupted, sly interpreter in that "action comedy" movie. The two sidekicks go through a ridiculous plot leading them from Paris to London, trying desperately to amuse the viewer.

Auteuil and Clavier don't act too badly, but the dialogues are so hopelessly lousy that no actor in the world would seem capable speaking those lines. How did John Cleese end up in such a disaster?

Worse, the rhythm, albeit a quintessential point in a comedy, is here completely defective. Some sequences are painfully slow and boring. Despite a comfortable budget, the action scenes are underachieved most of the time, and muddled at best. And the music, composed by a Jean-Claude Camors, is probably the worst score written this year.

A terrible movie. Avoid at all costs.
