This isn't a "French" movie. This is a pretty conventional Mel Gibson/Harrison Ford action/thriller made in France.
For what it is, it is very successful and keeps moving from beginning to end and has a decent number of twists, but there is little "Frenchness" to it, other than it appears that the characters don't bathe often.
Still, if you want to chew up some time with a solid popcorn movie and you don't mind reading subtitles, this is a good choice. As long as you aren't expecting any philosophical insights into life or anything like that, I think you'll be satisfied and it's always nice to see some new faces and places, even if it's pretty much the same old same old as far as the plot goes.
