The Tiger Brigades (Les Brigades du Tigre) Reviews
A mon sens, une adaptation intĂ©ressante d'une sĂ©rie Ă succĂ¨s, ce qui est toujours un exercice pĂ©rilleux.
Et si on ferme les yeux sur cela on est quand mĂŞme devant un film aux dĂ©cors eet aux bbeaux costumes mais d'un ennui quasi mortel ! Alors oui la mort de Bonot est quasi fidĂ©le Ă la rĂ©alitĂ© mais sinon que l'histoire fait tiree par les cheveux !!
un ratage !
An excellent film, with a lot of action, wonderful costumes and settings, and a great international cast, from Stefano Accorsi, to Gerard Jugnot, to Diane Kruger. Everyone is truly outstanding.
Beautiful photography and perfect direction.
Some parts of the script unfortunately doesn't quite work, but otherwise the story plays out well though its ending is predictable.
(traduction: Mmmmhhh... Jack, oh Jack!)
Only one bad thiing the director who make an academic movie with some good ideas
Starring Clovic Cornillac, Diane Kruger, Edouard Baer, Olivier Gourmet, Stefano Accorsi
Seemingly inspired by De Palma?s ?The Untouchables? with set decoration by ?The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.? A combination French history lesson and too glossy police drama, ?The Tiger Brigade? is very well-made and heavily produced complete with all the elements of its genre. The cast was nicely picked, an interesting array of appealing character faces with a known actress in the middle. I was a bit surprised to learn that Kruger actually made her debut in France before coming to Hollywood and making three movies in a row. German-born, speaks French with a beauty that could launch a thousand ships. That?s why she conquered Hollywood so easily.
Best Scene: Last man?s barn stand.
