Not "French Hit-man"
23 June 2016 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

You sometimes have to wonder what the Germans are thinking when they (re)name some movies they release. You can not think any minute of watching this, that it is an action movie or something in that vain. While it does have some single action pieces it also has too many moments that just drag along. It feels like an overblown slow burning movie with really good actors in it.

And does it have a payoff? Me thinks not, but I reckon that is in the eye of the beholder/the viewer to judge for themselves. I don't think many will come up with a positive look on things though. It's not always about being fast paced, but you do wonder if it wasn't possible to pick it up at times and make this anything else than boring ... then again, that in itself might be the selling point for those who want something different
