Not worth renting, buying or seeing
23 November 2008 | by kas-26See all my reviews

This movie is a really poor performance. The actors are all overacting, neither do they catch your sympathy or interest to get involved in the story, not that there is much of a story. Its also at times extremely confusing and irritating when they switch from french to German language constantly. The scenes are to short and is cut Jason Bourne style like it was some kind of action film, in an attempt to make the story more spicy. The film has no characters, no drama, no action, no humor in addition to the lack of a real story. It has nothing. So if you spot this in the shelf at the video store do not assume that it is a film like München or similar like I did. It is not. Total failure
