John Travolta and Jonathan Rhys Meyers come into action to clear the evils who pose threat to the country. Directed by Pierre Morel, the film is neither excellent nor bad but has too many guns, shots all blended with fine intelligence and judgments.
The story is about a low level spy, James Reese works for American Embassy in Paris and is leading a beautiful life in Paris with a beautiful French girlfriend. Everything in his life seems to be good and looks like he might move ahead with larger and better detective operations He is asked to pick up his new associate who is having some problem clearing customs. His new associate Wax seems to be a connoisseur at spy games and by the time James has any control over the situation he’s counting the preys via per hour ratio. It takes a while before he has any idea about the situation, but seems that it engrosses drug trader and terrorists.
The directorial skill of Pierre Morel stands out to be good and convincing for those who share love for action movies. Every component of the film was good and appreciable but there were certain scenes which were unique and quite intelligently blended. The screenplay and cinematography made the film look like an average Hollywood action movie but good enough to woo the Indian audience.
John Travolta and Jonathan Rhys Meyers were the showstoppers, their actions and wits which were nicely portrayed through their acting skills kept the spectators exhilaration a quite above average.
Though there were some scenes hanging in the air but on the whole the film is good but could have been elevated to an extra level making it even more watch worthy for the audience.
Nicely packaged with an average storyline this film can be a one time watch but for the fans of Travolta it might double.
