[Besson] seems to like playing off the generic, though he probably thinks of it as working with the mythic, the classic.

Excessively violent, empty-headed, contrived and full of gaping plot holes.

This Besson thriller sparked many a wannabes, but it's clear this film stands on its own two feet, and kicks you in the head.

An exciting and entertaining actioner that tests the plausibility of its story with an unreality check.
