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.
It's a picturesque adventure filled with a logic-bending plot and death-defying stunts.
Unlike the smooth-operating 007, Belmondo's That Man From Rio hero is a clumsy, bumbling, and ultimately charming dope.
This charming French madcap road adventure, starring Jean Paul Belmondo at the height of his fame, was a huge international hit.
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.
