Excerpt: Quentin Tarantino trained him in PULP FICTION, John Woo upped the ante in FACE/OFF but Luc Besson gives us John Travolta as the baddest special agent to ever explode in France. Don't let anyone tell you different, this is an over the top all action 93 minute fun ride.

Excerpt: I enjoy action movies and like Travolta but this movie was pretty thin in anything except gun play. Very little development of the Travolta character, what was he all about? AQ was excellent PQ good also as expected.
Excerpt: I am convinced that the so-called "professional" movie critics are incredibly insecure people who only find solace in acceptance from their own peers. They do this by bashing all the same movies, as though they themselves are too high brow for such entertainment.
Excerpt: When you see the name Luc Besson you know you're in for a great ride. (The Transporter Trilogy, The Fifth Element). Plus with Travolta at the helm playing a wise-cracking bad ass (Face/Off, Swordfish) you're in for a treat. That's From Paris with Love.
Summary: Would I watch this movie again? Yes I was not sure what to expect from this movie. But, I decided to watch it. And long and behold, its one which you should not miss if you are into guy movies like me. Lots of action, good lines, fast pace and a bit of a story. What else can a guy ask for?
Excerpt: From Paris With Love was a movie that was on my radar, but I never got to see theatrically. However, a few friends saw it and loved it, others hated it. Now that it is out on on shelves, I can check it out.
