Critic Reviews for L'homme de Rio (That Man from Rio)
It's fun, in an imperialist, colonialist, patronizing, exotic-marginalized-foreigners way.
The fun feels forced almost all the way through "That Man From Rio," at least until the pure action and Belmondo's athleticism take over.
That Man From Rio is a crazy delight, a stylish, early-'60s pastiche that folds in every adventure-movie cliché you've ever seen, and possibly invents a few new ones.
We don't think of Belmondo as an action star per se, but that's what he is here, smirking like Steve McQueen and managing to keep a cigarette clamped between his lips even when he's navigating hairpin turns on a motorbike.
