I'm sure fans of "Taken" will enjoy this full-throttle action flick! I did...for the most part.
From what I read in the newspaper when this movie came out is, quote, "Best Travolta since "Pulp Fiction!""....well...thats not so true. Travolta has definitly played better characters than Waxx from this movie. I mean, sure, Waxx was definitly a fun character to witness only once, but, the character development is nothing special from this. John Rhys Meyers, whom I've never seen in a movie before this, plays Reece. As Reece, his role is solid and he does a pretty good job. When it comes to the acting in "From Paris with Love", it is no major problem whatsoever.
Like I already said, "From Paris with Love" is filled scene after scene with reckless violence. BUT, some of it gets a little out-of-hand. I felt like Travolta's character was just written to do crazy stunts and killshots just for the hell of it. BUT, the movie has some loud explosions and entertaining bloody violence.
I will only say one thing under the "direction" section. Pierre Morel knows how to make an action movie! Even if some of it is a little out-of-hand, it is still very true!
OVERALL, "From Paris with Love" is a decent, one time only, action-movie that should entertain in its hour and a half time-slot. I'd give it a rent.
