Audience Reviews for Taxi


The first and best of the four films by far, the action is slightly more serious and alittle more towards 'Lethal Weapon' and the acting seems much more proper and less lampoon. Its not gritty or bloody but its a good fun action flick with some great car sequences which actually look pretty realistic and fast unlike the sequels over the top stunts. The baddies in this one are the best too, German eurotrash that actually look abit evil and act dastardly haha those darn Germans huh ;) some nice gun sequences too which make the film feel much more adult and really add to the whole atmosphere of the film, in its time this was good stuff for petrol heads and one of Luc Bessons best ideas, he seems to like taxi's.

Funny, that german blonde is hot as hell. Just avoid the sequels.

Kind of funny French film with lots of entertainment. First in a series of cab feature films. Worth getting
