It's stupid, it's unoriginal, and it makes very little sense... but that's not all bad.

From Paris with Love attempts to reimagine John Travolta as a potty-mouthed soldier of fortune who's not only stock but dated.

There's no escaping the grinding gears of an American buddy picture that loses something in the translation.

Luc Besson should be embarrassed to have his name on the poster.

Travolta stuffs it up, again.

Travolta eventually becomes a parody of himself: with nudge-nudge references to the Royale cheeseburger, famously of Pulp Fiction.

Not even the pleasures inherent in watching John Travolta mug it up as a gonzo CIA operative bent on breaking things and killing people... are sufficient recompense for sitting through this by-the-numbers slog from the fevered brain of Luc Besson

Ironically, it's Travolta's voracious, scenery-chewing and wide-eyed ravings which turn out to be the guilty pleasure of From Paris With Love, an otherwise dumb action adventure that clumsily pilfers scenes from the Bourne trilogy.

Pauline Kael has already reviewed this movie in her book Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and it only took her the title.

Mr. Morel is no Kubrick, or Tarantino, just as Mr. Travolta's caricature of John Travolta is no Travolta.

If anything, From Paris With Love doesn't go far enough in its ridiculousness, with only Travolta's firing-a-bazooka-off-a-freeway-bridge scene truly going for broke.

Nowhere near as fun as that premise probably sounds.

This feels like a middling 80s action film supposedly amped up by being set in Paris, but instead dumbed down by daft story telling.

Unfortunately, From Paris with Love is unable to keep up the pace of Morel's previous Gallic adventures.

Blame scenarist/producer Luc Besson, whose women are either whores or terrorists. Besson may be from Paris, but his idea of love is laced with bile.

The movie tries to shock you with its twists and turns. What's really shocking is how an action flick with such a high body count could be so deadly boring. Travolta brings new meaning to the term, "ugly American."

Critic's Notebook

It's only remotely fun when John Travolta takes center stage, rampaging across the screen.

Would you like some fromage with all that ham, Monsieur Travolta?
