One more solid French thriller to enjoy with not so complicated plot line, lots of old school action and good execution.

Well paced thriller. Believable characters and plotting. Worth a look.

Cracking movie!! With a hero who is more desperate than courageous or calculated but is capable of both (well, the former anyway) when push comes to very big shove. Exciting and gripping flick: loved it.

Are you kidding me? A guy gets hit by a speeding motocylce at full speed and is in an induced coma. Then gets up and runs around like crazy like he didn't break one bone. Then the docile nerd nurse turns into a fighter and knows how to shoot like a trained assasin.
Then the pregant lady is in a high risk to give birth to have her baby if she doesnt lie down but she is upright the whole movie and doesnt go into . Give me a break. this story is so far fetched that maybe the subtitiies are wrong cause it's not beleivable

This plays like the animatronic version of much better thrillers like Frantic. All noise, editing, twists and turns...it's like some sort of film-school blueprint was followed, but no one really much understood or liked it. It strains credulity within the first 10 minutes and begins to wear on one in the first 20. By the time I hit the 30 minute mark, the DVD was out of my player, and I was in the kitchen making a sandwich. Obviously, there are some people who are going to like all the sound and the fury. But then again, they'll be the same people who like all those "Liam Neeson becoming a mad, avenging fury to save his threatened family" movies.

A good thriller that, like a lot of French films, dumps the idea of who's good and who's bad on it's head. Not a whole lot of characters are wholly drawn out which leaves some of the focal points with minor characters scratching your head a bit. The focus is certainly on forcing the action forward and with that, it does a good job.

A really good action thriller, somewhat reminiscent of a Hitchcock chase movie. There are good cops, bad cops, good bad guys and bad bad guys. This movie keeps you interested, but you don't have a chance to take a breather, as the action is non-stop.
