Mea caca (2014)
23 January 2016 | by Seth_Rogue_OneSee all my reviews

A very disappointing movie for me as Point Blank (2010) is my favourite French movie and the director of that movie also directed this.

It starts off extremely confusing with a incoherent plot line of clips taking place in the present time mixed with random flashbacks, get's slightly more coherent perhaps 25 minutes in or so but by then I had pretty much given up on the movie.

Felt like it was originally 2 hours or something but then cut down to 90 minutes because it was too slow for them to label it a action-movie and thought fast cuts = action.

And then we get a scene of (real) animal-torture from a bullfighting arena where we get to see a matador sticking knives (again real) into the innocent bull while the crowd cheers in excitement, which was pretty much the nail in the coffin for me.

Well-made action-scenes though, once the action actually get started.
