Toxic waste bubbles in a ship waiting permission to dock in Odessa. Frank Martin turns down a job in Marseilles, referring it to a pal. A short time later, the pal, wounded by gunfire, crashes his car into Frank's living room and dies, leaving a young woman in the back seat. The employer of the dead man shows up, forces Frank to take the job, snaps a bracelet on his wrist that will explode if Frank gets more than 75 feet from his car, and sends Frank on a journey east with the young woman and a trunk full of something. She's Valentina, nearly mute. Can Frank figure out what's going on, deliver the package, and escape alive? And what does the ship have to do with it? Written by

It's a good thing that we French have such a highly developed sense of humor.
With all due respect, the French think that Jerry Lewis is a genius.
Jerry Lewis is a genius.
Dean was the genius.
No. Dean just stood there with a drink and a cigarette.
My point exactly. Anyone can fall down and get a laugh. But how many people can do it standing still with a drink and a cigarette?

I do not fully understand why this film has been so severely slated. As far as action films go it ticked all the boxes, plenty of guns, car stunts, good fights, romance and even some corny humour, and has a happy ending .........what do people expect ..........Sir Laurence Olivier doing bloody Hamlet?
If you have had a crap day at work, and want to watch a good action movie which is not demanding then this is very good "action" film, if you require something demanding then watch a good foreign film.
I had as much fun watching this as I do watching a James Bond or Jackie Chan film. 8/10
