Consensus: Thought not without its charms -- chief among them John Travolta's endearingly over-the-top performance -- From Paris with Love is too muddled and disjointed to satisfy.

Laremy Legel

If you like a violent, silly, frenetic style of film you'll find plenty to enjoy here.

Rolling Stone

Crushing dull repetition that makes one noisy, violent scene play exactly like the last one.

Reel Talk Online

Aside from a generic plot twist and a little clever banter between the two fellas, From Paris With Love fails to deliver the excitement to which the trailer alludes.

Time Out

Itâ(TM)s not enough to allow the film to rise above its guilty-until-proven-innocent conception of justice. Reprehensible, then, but what fun!

The bazooka was as subtle and witty as the movie.

This thing is fun. Dumb fun. Overdone fun.

Is the movie worth seeing as a travelogue? Only if you are (a) a masochist, (b) a terrorist, or (c) desperate.

All bravado and it nearly works. But the flick's insistence on playing dumb, on shooting suspects before interrogating them and explaining anything, puts your brain on autopilot

The goatee-sporting, shaven-headed Travolta throws himself around with gusto, and the action is bruising and bloody, but to a viewer on this side of La Manche, the film's casually racist attitude to its non-white characters is shocking.

Non stop action lots of explosions a wise cracking Travolta. This was a good time from start to finish. Didnt have to think at all!

So much action, yet so little to take away from it. It's a very average movie that has over-the-top, loud, and in-your-face action that never stimulates… More

Entertaining but ultimately dumb action thriller with Travolta trying to be Mr. Cool once again. It works for some scenes but feels forced in others. It's… More

Wax: Welcome to Paris, baby. "Two agents. One city. No merci." From Paris with Love is a ridiculous,  moronic, gun toting, zero brain having action… More

I really enjoyed the ride. It's action packed and John Travolta was actually funny. I thought Jonathan Rhys Meyers wouldn't be able to distract me… More
