A film which the French police will not necessarily appreciate
First, this film looks like an Europacorp crap factory production. I would have thought of Pierre Morel or Louis Leterrier as directors. Yes it pretty looks like a TAKEN or other trash from Besson's crap factory, all those action flicks with American actors and taking place in Paris. But let's be fair, that remains a B movie blown up to a grade A one. I loved the rogue cops scheme, it had the potential to be a great film from this, only from this. But the rest of it is forgettable, the acting and directing are awful. AWFUL. The escape sequence from the police truck is pretty close to a sequence, also an escape from a police truck, in HANNIBAL series. And the heist looks like the one in DIE HARD 3..

it could have been better, and I even think that Besson's Europacorp could have been better. A better garbage product. But it remains a corny and appreciable time waster.
