Storyline:

James Reece is an ambitious aide to the U.S. Ambassador in Paris, doing little jobs for the CIA and hoping to get into black ops. On the night he and his girlfriend, Caroline, become engaged, he’s told to pick up Charlie Wax at Orly. Charlie is an unorthodox government employee – large, bald and bearded, foul-mouthed and eccentric. Charlie immediately takes James on a wild ride of murder and mayhem, through ethnic enclaves. As bodies pile up, the purpose remains opaque to James. Caroline, unhappy that James has been out of touch for a day, tells him to bring Charlie for dinner. Charlie can be charming – where will it lead? Does the chess-playing James have what it takes?

One review

  • “From Paris With Love” was an entertaining movie, there is not much to discuss about here. The characters walked their line, the story had a little twist and the action scenes were good. Shootings and chases are fast, excellently accomplished, and the movie is rather short than lengthy. It’s the movie that brought John Travolta back to the action genre once more and he still got it in him, though he is really starting to look too old for it all. That being said, this should definitely be labeled as an action comedy, because there’s also a lot humour, in no way is this a straight action movie. Recommended if you desire a fast action when eyes must be always focused on the screen.
