Critic Reviews for That Man from Rio
It's fun, in an imperialist, colonialist, patronizing, exotic-marginalized-foreigners way.
We don't think of Belmondo as an action star per se, but that's what he is here, smirking like Steve McQueen and managing to keep a cigarette clamped between his lips even when he's navigating hairpin turns on a motorbike.
The fun feels forced almost all the way through "That Man From Rio," at least until the pure action and Belmondo's athleticism take over.
That Man From Rio is a crazy delight, a stylish, early-'60s pastiche that folds in every adventure-movie cliché you've ever seen, and possibly invents a few new ones.
That Man In Rio has faults but that does not mean for a moment we cannot still get something out of it, even if it's, at the very least, some unadulterated thrills.
Audience Reviews for That Man from Rio
It must think that it is so exciting to make Jean-Paul Belmondo run up and down the entire movie, but in fact it is only repetitious, predictable and inane, with a sense of humor that usually falls flat (despite a few good moments) and a loose structure that makes it feel overlong.
