Absolutely awful. What was Travolta and Rhys-Myers thinking????
At times silly and down-right dumb, the movie is fun and action-packed. Travolta, as usual, does his best over-acting job. Not bad if you are in the modd for a brainless action flick.
Travolta was hilarious. This movie had interesting twists and turns. It kept me wondering what was going to happen next.
LOVE THE EXPLOSIONS AND ACTION!
Good and brainless - what else to expect from a Travolta movie lately?
garbage pure garbage...
Good, fun, mindless movie!
While the movie doesn't make a whole lot of sense - it's a fun, action packed movie full of laughs and explosions.
pure crap. Zero plot, pointless predictable violence. Travolta must be having financial difficulties to sign on for this one...
I love john Travolta's action flicks. this movie was very fast paced and action packed. Loved every second of it
AMAZING! Of course I was expecting bang-bang, but I wasnt expecting this movie as good as it was. LOVE John Travolta, thats why I decided to watch it. I wasn't dissapointed!!
This movie was nothing but cussing and killing. We walked out way before it was over and were disappointed we had wasted our money.
one of the best movies i have seen in a long time... action, humor , has it all... LOVED IT! John Travolta was amazing - they were a great pair!
A decent, brainless, action movie (if you liked movies like The Transporter this is for you - also done by Luc Besson). Travolta and Rys-Myers are pretty good in the movie and work well together. A lot of action, with a slightly less than original plot - overall, a good, loud, action movie.
John Travolta nails his character, and makes the movie fun, and entertaining. It may be hollywood, but the underlying plots of terrorism reminds us that some of this movie could be true - it's a scarry thought.
what a great fun movie!
If you love movies with lots of action and shooting, this is the movie for you. I convinced my dad to come with me to see it, and he reluctantly went. When we came out, he said he was glad that I convinced him to go.
I just wanted to say to the idiot that said jonathon rhys meyers should stick to being english that he is actually irish. there is a difference.
Wow poor Johnny Boy reuseing his Le Big Mac lines from the only good movie he was in Pulp Fiction.This Movie Sucked, Save your penny's ppl, I made my friends go see it as well I felt so bad I wanted to refund them their money back..Jonathan M the other actor is just a pretty face, he was struting his GQ ness all over the movie, no plot and just a perpetuating a xenophobia culture with the scary middle eastners and ohh the froggy french and the savior americano's plsss this is getting so old.
Boring awful movie. Cheesey! Unbelievable and stupid plot! Terrible acting! Not even funny! Do not even rent this movie!
I was actually surprised how much I liked this movie, it's great, funny, filled with action, I recommend it!
I totally loved it! A good movie all guys should go see! It should have been rated higher on Rotten Tomatoes, probably because of those older generation people might found this movie a bit less exciting as us young generations did.
It was alright, nothing spectacular. Taken was 10x better, Johnathan Rhys should never try to be anything but English, he acted too much to be an American. Travolta was good but a little over the top in some areas, but he was my favourite part of the movie.
LOVED IT! Travolta is my FAV Actor and he kicked some @$$ in this movie!!! GREAT MOVIE!!!
Dumb. Never got to like any of the characters. Typical shoot em up... Expected a lot more, taken was way better.
3.5-stars, but I rated it at 4. They definitely tried to use the same formula as was used in 'Taken', but they didn't quite spend enough time on the emotional set-up at the beginning. It was definitely funnier, and it felt like I was watching 'Pulp Fiction' during some scenes. Just make sure you pay attention to the movie, or you may get left behind by the plot.
excellent action film sprinkled with drama, romance,and chracter as any film the last few years..great entertainment
There's only one line from the movie that I remembered the most after seeing it, which is Wax On, Wax Offf!!
A nice movie for the beginning of 2010, two thumbs up!
charlie Wax is now my new favourite super hero!
Typical shoot-em-up - they never load the guns.....
The movie was awful, and after reading some of these glowing reviews, I can't help but notice how similar the writing styles are - can anyone say "Studio plant".
Seeing is believing! And after watching this movie, it is definitely a full price for me!
i half heartedly went with my teenage son...and it was GREAT!!! i recommend it to anyone, male, female, old, young. good way to spend some time with your favourite son like i did with mine! good date movie, good girls night out movie...jonathyn rees meyers mmmm mmmm
movie was very funny, had a twist in the end and john travolta was amazing!! its a must watch for a good laugh!
the best movie so far 2010..
Started things slow at the beginning, and it cought up really fast later on to become a super fun movie to enjoy
LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!! SUPERB!!
Before we used to have James Bond, Jason Bourne and now we have a new spy hero, Charlie Wax! Welcome to Paris baby! 5 Stars all the way!
Charlie Wax is a totally amazing character, one of the biggest highlights in this film! A 100% action packed comedy that everyone should go see --- A.W
