The best movie I have seen this year by far. Why are the french so good at Mafia movies? Jean Reno superb!
great film one of the best seen in ages
I absolutely loved this film it was gritty and edgy. Great direction and acting.
I didn't realise this movie had captions, am not really interested in movies with captions. I want English only.
Great movie, story line similar to Taken with Liam Neeson.
Jean Reno , the Mafia boss who tries to retire to the countryside, always seems to project his personalty with very little dialogue. I love his acting. This film is a study of the power of the Mafia and how the power is transferred to the next "boss"in line. A satisfying film with the ending not as predictable as you would think. There are surprises all through the film, a great night in.
Jean Reno is a great actor, pity I did not realise the movie was in French with sub-titles. Still worth a watch, a fascinating look into the French crime world.
I love Jean Reno movies so I was biased coming into this but as a movie it was still enjoyable. Here we have Underbelly and Chopper over in Marseille it is a romanticized version of the life story of Jacky Imbert. Yes it is subtitled, yet it is a bit too much selling the Jean Reno type-cast character. BUT BUT BUT it is still enough of a good movie to and sufficiently different from the US Hollywood crime genre to be enjoyable and entertaining.
If you have 5.1 have a watch of the Good Thief where Nick Nolte does a good US job of the genre but still needs a center channel and/or subtitlleing for his particular blend of mumbling gravel-speak.
Great movie. Pity it was in French though and not English. Spent most of the time reading sub-titles. Great acting, great story, a bit gory in places. Some bits were a little predictable. Even bad guys can be good (sort of).
Very good movie. It is in French. Jean Reno is a superb actor.
Jean Reno as an old gangster out for revenge - About as good as I expected it to be and I had fairly high expectations. I was hoping for another Leon and didn't get that, but this is a nice drama with time spent to develop characters you care about. Fairly violent as you might expect, but watched to the end by my wife who enjoyed it and commented as much.
