    It makes some great decisions, then makes some really bad ones. Cassel, Bellucci and Karyo are very well casted, the soundtrack is great. The movie can't make up it's mind if it wants to be a gritty urban thriller or over-the-top action. It tries both, but the script is too weak to make the characters stand from it's one dimensional facades of "cool". There are still some good sequences (the intro, the club battle) with more focus this could had been better.

    it continues, the experiment of a generation of filmmakers in France to see who can make characters look most like Muppets -- and, in the case of Dobermann, have less characterization than the Muppet show. The directors will not stop competing for this honor, whether the abstract material for their art is ultra-mayhem or hypersentimentalism. Extra points for putting Vincent Cassel in an ugly wig -- they love it! 3 or 4 good shots, the rest make you want to re-watch Raimi or Rodriguez... even Besson for God's sake who is at least good at getting all his ducks in a row.

    It's all very well trying to copy Taratino, but at least his films had interesting characters, a plot, and style. This is somewhere between Barb Wire and The Crow, only nowhere near as good as either. It's an over-directed mess with not one single character to care about.

    Holy gratuitous violence batman! What a rush. A well executed stylistic action movie.
