Writer: Adi Hasak, Luc Besson
Director: Pierre Morel
Starring: Jonathan Rhys Meyers, John Travolta,
a small time intelligence guy working in the us embassy as an assistant gets bumped up to working with the edgy, working on the fringe, super hardcore agent guy and becomes involved in stopping a middle eastern terrorist cell, some drug trafficking, and some car chases and some gun fights, and an assassination plot
bad. just watch some buddy cop movies from the early nineties. they were way more successful at buddy cop movies and had more going on than this piece of crap. seriously, this was just lethal weapon in france with john travolta and less of a plot and more gun fights and rocket launchers. there was nothing associated with this movie that could be called original, or a unique perspective. maybe adi hasak was the name of the machine that luc besson created to poop out plot keywords and then they just added "the"s and "and"s to it.
p.s. jonathan rhys meyers had the worst american accent i've ever heard. he should never be cast as an american without endless hours of a coach. i was less distracted by the disappearing southern accent by bruce willis in armageddon.
don't watch this movie.
sometimes i wonder if tarantino is ashamed he brought the travolta back from the dead.
