The world's top assassin, Duncan Vizla, is settling into retirement when his former employer marks him as a liability to the firm. Against his will, he finds himself back in the game going head to head with an army of younger killers.
I was interested in watching this French crime drama/actioner to see what they would accomplish on a budget smaller than a Hollywood blockbuster. The look of the movie is acceptable, though throughout it's clear that the movie is on a somewhat more limited scale. But that isn't really the problem with the movie. Whether you are French or not, most likely you'll find the movie to be mostly drab. There's far too much talk, and none of the talk is particularly colorful or interesting. As for the action sequences, they are okay, but due to the aforementioned lower budget, they are not as grand scale or exciting as in Hollywood movies. Not an engaging movie, as you've probably concluded, though it's brief running time (81 minutes) does prevent it from joining the list of all time worst crime/action movies.
