Great movie
8 February 2019 | by veron-36111See all my reviews

The movie is great. It is action packed, much action is happening, but in a different and better way then Hollywood does it generaly, I wouldd say, and I generally think that French make good movies and this a good confirmation. I would definitely recommend it. One thing I didin't like, it is a bit confusing at the beggining.
