Everything about the second half is snappier, especially the acting...
Cassel injects a jolt of wild energy and ambiguity into what could easily have been another flatulent, apologist gangster epic.
It's so killer, it makes Part 1 seem like nothing but a flesh wound.
A French crime-gangster film of epic proportions
Together, these two films represent a thinking-man's gangster movie. They contain the self-reflection and real-life grit, but without ponderous self-indulgence.
A restless character study in which an otherwise unremarkable individual, tossed by the tides of fate, emerges unexpectedly as remarkable, but in all the wrong ways
a fascinating true-life story that suffers only from trying too hard to be completely true to life.
French actor Vincent Cassel, as Mesrine, delivers in spades.

Mesrine is a lean, flashy, fast-moving, somewhat repetitive film, very French in some ways, yet lacking the gravitas of the crime movies starring Jean Gabin or directed by Jean-Pierre Melville.
Richet's punchy style doesn't add anything new to the conventional, Scorsese-inspired way of presenting gangster movies, but it's well done, giving the film a constant supply of energy.
A film that doesn't necessarily glamorise its subject, though it does seems worryingly enamoured by his achievements. This is ultimately closer to a slice of over-board entertainment than an insight into a despicable, if extraordinary man.
There are no featured reviews for Mesrine: Part 1 (Killer Instinct) and Part 2 (Public Enemy #1) at this time.
