The storyline was a litter hard to follow at first but watching it a second time I enjoyed it. It's fifty-fifty with this movie for most people, but I don't judge movies upon first viewing.

good-to-great performance by all 3 lead actors/actress. Very entertaining

Violent, over the top and silly, but entertaining. John Travolta's enthusiastically over the top performance makes this movie. The rest of the cast (especially Jonathan Rhys Meyers) seems out of place and not so well acted. Good for a mindless violent action movie.

Loved this movie. Highly recommend it to everyone. Love John and John together. They are a great pair. Great chemistry between them. Humorous moments broke up the action at just the right moment.

It was pretty much what I expected from this film.
Travolta was pretty damn bad and looked so ridiculous.
Felt completely like a Luc Besson film even if he didn't direct it.

From Paris With Love has it moments, and is most highlighted by a great performance from Travolta. However, despite its good intentions to give the audience some fun, which it does, this film ultimately falls short in a few too many areas, it has plot holes and aside from Travolta, the rest of the acting is okay at best.

A Funny, twisty action movie; worth seeing

Its not a great flick, couple good action scenes, that's about it. I liked John Travolta's character though a lot. He plays a good dick head.

Racist, misogynistic, violent, clumsy diologue. What's there to like? Jonathan Rhys Meyers has an interesting face. That's about it.

Doesn't look like this movie can be salvaged.

There is much to love in From Paris with love, especially John Travolta's hammy performance. But it's messy narrative makes it probably too faithful of an homage to trashy action flicks
August 15, 2015
Quite a simple action type movie, standard plot, standard action, and standard gun shots.
July 23, 2015
Extremely cheezy movie, could not be more unoriginal. This director should take a hike.
June 27, 2015
John Travolta needs to do more movies like this, he's the perfect bad ass.

Stupid but I made it all the way through.

Good action movie about terrorism. Jonathan Rhys Meyers is a smart CIA agent but he wish to be in field ops. His boss Richard Durden want him to plant a chip in the foreign ambassador office. Jonathan stick a chewing gum to it but can't stick to the under table. He manage to staple it when all left. His girlfriend Kasia Smutniak prepare dinner with him but the boss tells him to fly off for a mission immediately. She propose to him instead. Travel to France to meet his partner John Travolta, who is a crazy dude. He insist to bring in his bag of energy drinks which the custom disapprove. Jonathan has no choice but to stick a sticker "diplomatic mail" and get it pass. John later reveal those cans are actually hiding his personal revolver parts. As they were arguing about Chinese dish in a restaurant, John ask a waiter how to say egg in mandarin and the waiter is 4th generation so he don't know. John point the gun at him and soon all the staff shoot at him. John kills them all and shoot the pillar, the cocaine all flow down like sand. They follow the waiter. John tell Jonathan this mission is by Secretary of Defense because his niece is having party and was overdose on this joint. Some local street gangsters find them trouble. John easily dispose them all. Duo enter a room with kids performing and John point the gun at a boss demanding to know where is the cocaine from. The henchmen chase after them. John kills them all in a gunfight. Jonathan call his boss who assure him John is the top operative although his method is unorthodox. John ask him to snot some of the coke and tells him the ops is actually about terrorists converting cash into drugs to go undetected. John order a hooker and Jonathan saw Kasia while in the elevator. Again it is another mission to look out at the bank the terrorist use. They follow the lead and reach another building. Pretending to buy coke, they reverse the situation with some violence. John descend from upper floor to crash into the drug unit. Jonathan wait outside but the door is wired with bombs. The baddie who came out of the bank is caught by Jonathan. He use his gun to his own mouth and shoot. John activate the vest bomb and throw it down the pick up car of the escape baddies and all are bomb to bits. In another room, the wall have many photos of Jonathan. The police arrive and Jonathan want to stop them from triggering the door rigged with bombs but John stop him. Jonathan tried but its too late. They escape in the police car. Jonathan want to get his own car. John reverse other cars and bang into the car and it got blown up by bomb. Kasia text Jonathan to go home for dinner and he bring John. Later when her friend receive a phone call finding Rose, John is alerted and shot her dead. He tell Jonathan the apartment is rigged with bugs and Kasia is also baddie. He bet the ring Jonathan is wearing is also a tracker. John put in near the stereo and it give out noise. Kasia take a gun from under table and shot Jonathan. John chase after her on roof top but she escape in a car. Later on the team find many bugs in the house. Kasia call Jonathan and says 6 years ago a man makes her see the purpose through faith and she didn't want to hurt Jonathan. The US delegation arrive for a summit. John feel they want to hit them. While on the road, John saw the pick up car. Jonathan think if the target are the delegates, why wire his apartment. He found a drawing and ask John to confirm if she is in the car. It is a mannequin and Jonathan rush to the summit. The delegate convoy refuse to take another route after receive the threat intel. John shot the car down with bazooka before it hit the convoy. John warn Jonathan that Kasia will probably wear the bomb vest and to kill her in the head. Jonathan can't pass through the security check as his pass is denied. He call out to Richard who let him through. He don't believe Jonathan story and his gun is impound. Jonathan goes inside to try find Kasia and manage to do so. The guards aim at him while he aim at Kasia. She reveal the vest bomb and everyone point at her. Jonathan can't talk sense into her and he shot her head. The delegate is angry to get delay. John sarcasm praise their job as getting compliments from their hardwork. He pass Jonathan the photo of the couple as memento. John want to play chess with Jonathan as they are about to leave and they are possibly going to be partners in future.

This movie just takes off and hopes you catch up. Kind of a dizzying effect until you piece it together - just like you are the Rhys-Meyers character. Travolta's over the top performance takes some getting used to (as does the chrome dome). The story is worth following, however the entirety is like a whirlwind that rushes by leaving you bewildered and wanting.
