Fast Paced Action Thriller, Travolta Rocks

I really enjoyed this movie that moves at breakneck speed. Reese is an attache for the government stationed in Paris. His main bit of intrigue occurs when he is asked to change license plates for government agents. On the night of his engagement he is asked to help a government agent clear customs. That agent is Travolta who is one of the most non-conventional people he has ever met.

After a big scene in customs, Travolta takes Reese on a non-stop ride throughout Paris where the two are constantly set on by machine gun toting bad guys and Travolta seems to be able to smell where the bad guys are.

All seems like Travolta's war on the Paris drug culture, but we soon learn that everything he is doing is to find out about a terrorist plot. The story is a lot of fun and Reese is the perfect foil for the wild Travolta. I enjoyed this movie from start to finish and would have rated it higher. The only drawback for me was the film never gave me a chance to catch my breath and take an inventory of what is going on.

From Paris With Love is a movie about James Reece(Jonathan Rhys Meyers) who is a US Ambassadorand how getting paired up with Charlie Wax(John Travolta) changes his life and what he thinks is real in the world he is accustomed to living in. The movie introduces you to Reece as a guy who doesn't seem to have much excitement in his life while at the same he's called upon to place bugs in the offices of high government officials or change liscence plates on cars of people they intend to track. The set …

 **1/2 out of ****      While somewhat limited to a lack of ambition in both its story-line and its intelligence, "From Paris with Love" is a film that I find oddly enjoyable; a less than generic action flick. Sure, it has a good amount of the typical action-film-clichés that we all despise, but it's also got a flat-out endearing supporting performance from John Travolta. With enough humor, action, and solid performances, I'd say that "From …

I got one question for you, want to see something go boom? Well that's what you get in "From Paris with Love", the next movie from the director of "Taken". I sat in my seat to this movie thinking I'm just going to "watch John Travolta blow some shit up." Don't get me wrong he does plenty of that in fact the movie even makes a joke out of it, "What's the body count like 1 an hour?" What really surprised me is that this action movie had some …

FROM PARIS WITH LOVE is an odd title for this 93 minutes of slaughtering in the name of smoking out Terrorists. But then it is an odd movie, too, one that fans of John Travolta's screen chewing side will love. There is so little story that it doesn't need summary. Two guys - one Special OPs wannabe James Reece (Jonathan Rhys Meyers with an American accent) is assigned to partner with an infamous spy called Charlie Wax (John Travolta in top edgy comedic form) to first uncover a cocaine ring of Chinese …
