The sort of stripped-down, Francophone picture that's been spoiling American action fans over the last few years. There are no Cuisinarted fight scenes, no pauses for awkward romantic subplots.

This film reminds me of another french flick called Point Blank, a film that I absolutely raved about here, in that its pacing is off the charts. Once the film… More
