Really enjoyed this movie and would watch it again on DVD/BluRay. I was quite impressed with the quality of the action scenes (for a French comedy). Looks like the director enjoyed making this movie, which shows care, attention to detail as well as faithfulness to the original anime City Hunter. I remember reading that creator Tsukasa Hojo himself enjoyed the screenplay for Lacheau's film, therefore giving the project 'added value' (particularly for the fans of the series who might have had doubts about this adaptation). The balance gags/action/storytelling is good, the casting works well too. A good job overall, considering that mangas/animes are particularly tricky to develop into convincing live-action movies. Now hoping for a sequel!
