That's a lot of stuff going on at once, all of which feels rather familiar but none of which the film ever truly gets right.

Despite the ingredients for a rousing shoot-'em-up (two-timing hit men, a slo-mo shoot-out, chartreuse-filtered scenes in Mexico) it's hard to buy the leads' mastery of this world of fist-pumps and violence.

Paris Countdown has style to burn, where "style" means "uses lots of lighting gels and some camera flourishes," but it doesn't have a coherent point of view or a solid take on the genre.
