From Paris with Love is a 2010 action/chrime/thriller movie with an iMDb rating of 6.4 out of 10, not really impressive rating. After watching the movie, I wouldn’t call it “cinema worthy”, but it’s not a bad way of spending the 92 minutes watching it as a rental movie. Yes, it’s only 92 minutes.
On iTunes Store, where I rented it with my Apple TV, it had a much better rating than on iMDb which is why I rented it in the first place. I don’t regret it though, as having said, it’s okay for a movie rental to spend 1.5 hours on it.
From Paris with Love features John Travolta as the most-known actor but also Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Amber Rose Revah, Eric Godon and Sami Darr. As for John Travolta, I think he’s in general a good actor and in this movie, he’s really bad ass, making Jack Bauer and Chuck Norris seem like babysitters 🙂
The movie itself is really simple with the “usual plot” from many action movies. There’s the good guys (John Travolta and Jonathan Rhys Meyers) that will have to protect a delegation against the bad guys. There’s only a few twists in it so you don’t really have to think much in this movie, it’s mostly a “sit back, relax and enjoy some HD and surround sound action”-kinda movie.
I’m rating this movie with 3 apples out of 5. One apple for John Travolta, one for managing to entertain me for the full 92 minutes and one for the action.
Rent it if you can – don’t buy it.
