Curiously airless, weightless and tonally uncertain, Luc Besson's mafia comedy falls flat.

It doesn't even try for basic credibility. But buoyed by hot performances, it sustains a zapping electrical energy.

The collateral damage involving innocent bystanders is staggering. Just mind you don't get caught in the crossfire.

Comes close to being a full-on endorsement of vigilante justice and enforcing social niceties through the business end of tennis rackets and baseball bats.

It’s not consistently entertaining enough either as a spoof or as a thriller.

Another to airbrush out of the De Niro back catalogue.

A great film to have a laugh or just sit back and enjoy on the couch. Who wouldn't want to see a film with De Niro and Pfeifer in it!!! Its not God Father but it does have plenty of hits and Diana Agron is certainly demonstrating more talent for future roles. Not a must see but a great film to enjoy
