From Paris with Love Reviews

Aside from a generic plot twist and a little clever banter between the two fellas, From Paris With Love fails to deliver the excitement to which the trailer alludes.

It's stupid, it's unoriginal, and it makes very little sense... but that's not all bad.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
March 25, 2010
From Paris with Love attempts to reimagine John Travolta as a potty-mouthed soldier of fortune who's not only stock but dated.
February 3, 2010
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.

Mildly diverting but entirely forgettable.

Return to sender.

Mr. Morel is no Kubrick, or Tarantino, just as Mr. Travolta's caricature of John Travolta is no Travolta.
February 4, 2010
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.
February 1, 2010
Nowhere near as fun as that premise probably sounds.
February 17, 2010
This feels like a middling 80s action film supposedly amped up by being set in Paris, but instead dumbed down by daft story telling.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
February 5, 2010
Unfortunately, From Paris with Love is unable to keep up the pace of Morel's previous Gallic adventures.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
February 10, 2010
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."

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