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.

A very silly but fun French action film about a souped up Taxi driver helping an incompetent police inspector catch a gang of high speed bank robbers. Think Ronin via Inspector Clouseau!

Fun, nonsense French action movie. Get the popcorn and enjoy! Very fast-paced, very much fun.

The opening scooter trick scene has yet to be replicated in modern cinema. This is definitely a precursor to "The Fast and The Furious."

Fun, light action/comedy from the Luc Besson stable. Naceri and Diefenthal are quite funny, Emma Sjoberg is EXTREMELY hot and the action is exciting and fast. Don't let the horrible American remake put you off seeing the original.

It's silly and it doesn't add anything to your life, besides giving us only a superficial view on the lead characters. On the other hand, Taxi is very entertaining. The script is funny so as most of the scenes and dialogues. You'll have a great time watching a stupid officer and a quick taxi driver trying to catch German robbers.

Mildly entertaining ... it takes a forgiving audience to overlook the rainbow of flaws and to convince themselves that they are having fun watching the flick.

The movie as said, is not the inspiration for Dhoom and leaving that aside, it may have couple of nice car chases by Samy Naceri , but it falters in the terms of filmmaking.

Antes que nada, para aclarar, que este review es sobre el filme original "Taxi" hecho en Francia, y no el remake gringo que hicieron luego que rápidamente quedó en el olvido, mientras que la cinta francesa generó 3 secuelas en su país. Inclusive me sorprende que hayan elegido a Jimmy Fallon para el remake en lugar de Adam Sandler que es igualito físicamente y en sus ademanes a Samy Naceri, el actor del filme original. No he visto las secuelas, pero de todos modos, el filme original aunque es muy entretenido, realmente esperaba más, tomando en cuenta que el guión es escrito por Luc Besson. Lo que puedo decir es que es un producto superior al mediocre remake gringo, sin embargo tampoco es una cinta tan buena como yo hubiera esperado. Esta saga ayudó a empezar a dar a conocer el nombre de Marion Cotillard que tiene un rol en el filme, pero al menos en el primer filme es muy secundario, y aunque sus intervenciones son buenas, son limitadas. Y es que eso también no ayuda en el filme ya que igualmente tienen a una actriz/modelo Emma Sjoberg, sumamente sexy, pero tampoco le sacan jugo a eso, y la trama se centra casi exclusivamente entre los personajes hechos por Samy Naceri y Frederic Diefenthal, que aunque entrenida no llega realmente a un nivel que uno se sorprenda. Sin embargo, la puedo recomendar.

Rediciulous, funny, and just plain hilirious, Taxi is a great comedy that doesn't take itself seriously and knows exactly what it's suppose to be.

It irks me that they made a crap film in Hollywood and associated it with this absolute gem of a film. While this is stylish, tremendously funny and obviously European, The American "reboot" is unoriginal and lacking heart.
If you like good, funny, and exciting buddy cop movies then this French action film will really get you hooked. I promise you that as the end credits roll on this one you'll be off to find the sequels.

Despite being in French and not having the best script ever this is an entertaining and humor filled action/comedy that has really good action sequences and some crazy and fun ideas that make for a good foreign movie.
