A perfume of huge disappointment
3 March 2019 | by onydenshaSee all my reviews

I was so disappointed by the movie that I made an account on IMDB to tell about it... Even though it sticks to the french version of City Hunter's universe, the movie is a total failure. The jokes are terribly lame (and mostly homophobic) and the rythm sucks.

Save yourself some time and money and don't watch that.

(Re)read the manga instead, it will most certainly make you laugh rather than cry tears of despair seeing how bad this adaptation is.
