From Paris With Love

James Reese (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) has a good job as an ambassador's aid in France, but his real passion is a side gig, working in a minor role in the CIA. He would love to be a full-fledged agent and can't believe his luck when he lands an assignment with Charlie Wax (John Travolta). Trigger-happy Charlie soon has James crying for his desk job, but when he learns that the same guys they're trying to catch are after him, James realizes that Charlie may be his only hope of survival.

"Unorthodoxed Means"

I really did not have any particularly high expectations for this film. I honestly assumed it would be another cookie-cutter action flick. No, this will be one of those movies that everyone copies immediately after.

Ironically it's based on the tried and true formula set by movies like Lethal Weapon. You have "The Good Cop" and the "Crazy Cop". But that's where the similarities end. Once the movie gets moving, it gains a momentum that even when things slow down, you know they're not actually slowing at all. And the "Crazy Cop" is the only sane person in the entire movie. And is able to jump on and off the "Train" at will while everyone else is wondering what is going on.

Of all things the movie hit a soft spot in my heart with the "The truth is your best lie" manner at which information was handled throughout the film. Excellent use of dialogue and perfect acting. this movie was spot on, and had it been done any other way, it would have been just another crap American action movie.

Check it out on the big screen, it's worth it, but not 100% necessary if you got a TV over 40". Sound was tame; dialogue was clear and the real star of the movie, never drowned out by explosions or annoying distractions.(There was never a moment were you had to theorize with friends after asking "What did he say when he _______".)
