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.

If you like a violent, silly, frenetic style of film you'll find plenty to enjoy here.
June 21, 2010
Lacking any compelling style, attitude or storytelling.

It(TM)s absolute nonsense, of course, but does quite nicely as knockabout Friday night fun. We can smell a sequel if Travolta can be bothered.
February 26, 2010
It(TM)s not enough to allow the film to rise above its guilty-until-proven-innocent conception of justice. Reprehensible, then, but what fun!
February 26, 2010
Travolta eventually becomes a parody of himself: with nudge-nudge references to the Royale cheeseburger, famously of Pulp Fiction.

I may have been distracted by the sleights of choreography and editing constructing action sequences around the none too nimble JT. But his trash-talking gusto " though a blatant Pulp Fiction pastiche " gives a bit of life to proceedings.
February 26, 2010
Everything here is pumped up, lousily shot and malevolently brutish. I(TM)m all for trash pleasure, but it(TM)s hard to come by when the company(TM)s so obnoxious.
February 26, 2010
For all its absurdities (and there are plenty), as a chest beating, hi-octane romp, From Paris With Love is as enlivening and gratifying as they come.
February 26, 2010
The monotony is crowned by a predictable plot twist. Producer Luc Besson, maker of the similar but superior Nikita, conceived the original story. It should, like most of its characters, have been killed on sight.
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.
February 12, 2010
Is the movie worth seeing as a travelogue? Only if you are (a) a masochist, (b) a terrorist, or (c) desperate.
February 12, 2010
Amidst the car chases and the gunfights Reese and Caroline rip out their hearts in hopes they won't be broken, their last scene so obnoxious and unbelievable it would almost be silly if it hadn't been so melodramatically unbearable.
February 11, 2010
Crushing dull repetition that makes one noisy, violent scene play exactly like the last one.
February 8, 2010
The bazooka was as subtle and witty as the movie.
February 5, 2010
All bravado and it nearly works. But the flick's insistence on playing dumb, on shooting suspects before interrogating them and explaining anything, puts your brain on autopilot
February 5, 2010
For better or worse, From Paris With Love is an effective stimulant.
February 5, 2010
Desperately unoriginal.
February 5, 2010
Extraordinarily bad by any measure.
February 5, 2010
The experience is more like watching a video game than a movie.
