More Info:
  • Michael Phillips

    Stoopid fun, From Paris With Love doesn't do much for Paris or love, or your brain cells, but it flies like a crazed eagle on uppers and comes from the talented, propulsive schlocketeer Pierre Morel.

  • Steven Rea

    Morel and his crew certainly know how to stage action: the fight scenes and shootouts, the stairwell pursuits and motorway mayhem, are as good, if not better, than anything to come out of Hong Kong in a long time.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    It's pure comic book/popcorn action. If that's your kind of movie, it's hard to go wrong with this one.

    Morel will inevitably be compared to John Woo, whom he trounces. He has fewer mannerisms (no damn doves) and a keener eye; his fastest, most kinetic shots flow together like frames in a flipbook.

  • Nick Pinkerton

    He (Morel) brings in lobotomized entertainment at 90-odd minutes. During the February doldrums, this cannot be underestimated.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    I am ashamed to admit that this empty-headed, preposterous, possibly evil mélange of gunplay and high-speed car chases on Parisian boulevards is a feel-good movie that produces a buzz.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Generic but breezily entertaining.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Angie Errigo

    It’s absolute nonsense, of course, but does quite nicely as knockabout Friday night fun. We can smell a sequel if Travolta can be bothered.

    Empire Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    John Travolta breaks the braggadocio meter in the latest tightly wound actioner from "Taken’s" Pierre Morel.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    With his flamboyant ridiculousness, Travolta does, however, give From Paris With Love a pulse, which is more than can be said for the film’s petulant hero, played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    Travolta has/is a blast in an action-thriller-comedy that otherwise comes up short.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    I hasten to say this is not criticism of John Travolta. He succeeds in this movie by essentially acting in a movie of his own.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    It's a hyper-violent buddy comedy. If you like that sort of thing -- think "Training Day," with laughs -- you'll love this.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    This is the sort of asinine action exercise that needs a star to blow up cars and leap from rooftop to rooftop with gusto.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Basically a bloody buddy picture that tries too hard.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Doesn't really know what it wants to be. Morel would have done better to remember the "to thine own self be true" bit, and stayed with the dunderheaded shoot-'em-up vibe, with Travolta having a blast, often literally.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    A ''fun trash'' movie that's more trash than fun.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    To his credit, Travolta hams it up with the kind of laissez-faire irony that might have made the film a tongue-in-cheek pleasure, had his attitude extended to the filmmakers.

    Variety Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    No movie star appears to have more fun in a crap movie than John Travolta, and his inimitable my-check-has-cleared! glee is the best thing about this lame espionage thriller.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Amid all the mayhem, there is Paris in all its faded-light glory. Is the movie worth seeing as a travelogue? Only if you are (a) a masochist, (b) a terrorist, or (c) desperate.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Pete Hammond

    If so inclined for a breezy, violent time-waster audiences could do worse. Travolta sadly can do so much better.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    The film is so self-referencing, however, that a running gag about Wax/Travolta craving a “royale with cheese” moves the film’s energy backward rather than forward. Perhaps instead it was a reference to the film’s nutritional value rather than its screen precedents.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Mary Pols

    This pickpocket of a movie flashes open its coat to proudly display all its swiped goodies.

    Time Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    So leaden and obnoxious that it actually makes you long for the John Travolta of "Old Dogs."

    USA Today Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Still, the action is ponderous too. Mr. Morel is no Kubrick, or Tarantino, just as Mr. Travolta's caricature of John Travolta is no Travolta.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Has no vital signs at all, just crushing dull repetition that makes one noisy, violent scene play exactly like the last one.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    John Travolta's From Paris With Love assassin/ superagent Charlie Wax is the master of whatever the opposite of wisecracking is. Fooljoshing? Lametalking? Flatlining?

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Holes in the script, overwrought camera work, dialogue that's embarrassing, and a plot device that's obvious 10 minutes into the movie - all these are major problems.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    The one thing that’s briefly enjoyable about From Paris with Love is John Travolta’s appearance. In a black leather jacket, with a shaved bald head and a goatee and a perpetual scarf to hide his jowls, he looks like a well-fed pimp or a gay bear.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    This sock-it-to-'em souffle falls very quickly, unless watching Travolta trying on another faux-hip look is considered fun.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Both mean-spirited and self-conscious. It's all style and no soul, which wouldn't be a problem if its style at least gave us something to look at, or to laugh at. But From Paris With Love, filmed on location in Paris, has a raggedy, greasy, dingy look: It's the movie equivalent of an unbathed, unshaven French boyfriend (the bad kind). It thinks it's suave, but it just smells bad. Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    We all know how rotten today’s movies can be, but even at the bottom of the slag pit, you won’t find a load of garbage any smellier than From Paris With Love.
