Top Critic

Despite the ingredients for a rousing shoot-'em-up (two-timing hit men, a slo-mo shoot-out, chartreuse-filtered scenes in Mexico) it's hard to buy the leads' mastery of this world of fist-pumps and violence.

Those with a fetish for the smashing of faces - against rocks, bourbon glasses, windshields, and the like - might enjoy Edgar Marie's crime thriller Paris Countdown.

Top Critic

Despite possessing some definite strengths, the film ultimately feels as though it's hewing to a well-honed formula.
