From Paris with Love

Action-thriller about a US diplomatic aide (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) in Paris who dreams of being given a proper assignment by the CIA. His wish comes true when he is saddled with a new partner, a high-risk, wise-cracking, trigger-happy spy played by John Travolta.

From the director of Taken, written and produced by the French master of bullet-crazed-action, Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, Transporter, Léon).

To his credit, Travolta hams it up with the kind of laissez-faire irony that might have made the film a tongue-in-cheek pleasure, had his attitude extended to the filmmakers.

Travolta and Meyers do all that’s required of them in another Besson B-movie blow-out. No brain required, but to be fair, twice as entertaining as many films with double the budget.

I am ashamed to admit that this empty-headed, preposterous, possibly evil mélange of gunplay and high-speed car chases on Parisian boulevards is a feel-good movie that produces a buzz.

I hasten to say this is not criticism of John Travolta. He succeeds in this movie by essentially acting in a movie of his own.

Travolta gets to do what Travolta does best in this action thriller from the team who brought us Taken, writer Luc Besson and director Pierre Morel.

A crime not just against cinema but all of humanity, it’s been a long, long time since a movie made me this mad. Half a Star (my worst Film3 rating ever).

Travolta has/is a blast in an action-thriller-comedy that otherwise comes up short.

It’s absolute nonsense, of course, but does quite nicely as knockabout Friday night fun. We can smell a sequel if Travolta can be bothered.
