Download From Paris with Love Full Movie
The absurdity of French squad Pierre Morel and Luc Besson have provided some of the most vivid and exhilarating action sequences caught on film. The team behind revenge fantasies Taken and District B13 return to France for their most polarizing film yet, From Paris With Love. Shot against a backdrop of a loosely-formed plot, their stories are merely used as an excuse to execute outlandish, over-the-top, borderline, laughable action scenes that are guaranteed to evoke reactions from viewers. Whether they are jaw-dropping or eye-rolling, their brand of action is truly a sight.
James Reece (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) works in the U.S. Embassy in Paris, France. Serving conversation points and meeting dignitaries may seem like an exciting job with tons of free espresso, but Reece has other, more dangerous ambitions; like being a super spy. Hidden from his bosses, Reece also works as an apprentice-level agent with duties that consist of flipping license plates for incoming super agents, planting bugs in high-level official’s offices and dropping everything to take calls from his mysterious handler. However, this life, for all the cloak-and-dagger busy-work, isn’t what he’s looking for. Reece wants action and fistfuls of it.
During a romantic rooftop dinner with his girlfriend Caroline (Kasia Smutniak), Reece finally gets the call he was waiting for: the big promotion. Well, maybe, if he can just pick up his new partner, who is currently being held up at French customs. Upon his arrival at the airport, Reece meets Charlie Wax (John Travolta), a loud-mouthed American ass kicker hell-bent on having his Rattlesnake energy drinks accompany him on his tour of Paris. The reason for his arrival? To shoot up a Chinese restaurant, dismantle bad guys and stop a terrorist threat made on an upcoming American-Franco summit in the French capital. Along the way, audiences will be treated to one-liners, a copious amount of “motherf*ckers,” and way too much entertainment.
Straight away when watching this movie, one could detect that something is amiss. A sappy first act is followed by the human tornado of Travolta’s Charlie Wax mixed with a furious sledgehammer of gunshots, through-the-window action and explosions that shake the foundation of a barely palatable story. It’s a roller-coaster of mayhem, poor acting and guilty fun. One could choose to look at From Paris With Love two ways. 1) as a campy look at ’80s action films complete with heavy metal riffs after a hail of bullets concludes, phrases like “Wax always gets it done,” and the ye olde pairing of a roguish bad-ass with a wet-behind-the-ears up-and-comer who has never seen real action before or 2) the most ridiculous monstrosity of 2010.
From Paris is just too much fun to resist. It never takes itself too serious and pokes fun at itself to remind audiences that, no, we don’t take this that seriously either. It’s because of the lack of self-seriousness that makes the movie work overall. But it’s not without its major faults. For such an incongruous movie of this magnitude, it’s only fitting that Morel and Besson install nearly one of the worst endings seen this year, which almost unravels all the goodwill built up during this 90-minute ejection seat from reality.
Then again, this may be Morel and Besson’s plan. What an enigma From Paris With Love truly is.
