1.0 out of 5 stars Lazy sub titles 27 April 2013
By Vinnie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
the film could have been very enjoyable if only the producers of the video had decided to put a proper sub-titles,not just a few phrases here and there.This really spoilt the viewing DONT BUY unless you understand FRENCH.and can follow the dialogue in its original language

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent gangster film 13 Oct 2012
By OMG! It's got a plug! TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Whilst the comparisons to Mesrine are understandable (it's based on a true story of the French underworld of the 1970s), they are two very different films. Set in modern day France with extended flashbacks, this is a film about loyalty, betrayal and revenge between former gang members. The acting is first class and overall it's a very stylish production with more of an emphasis on drama than thrills but with enough action sequences to satisfy. It's not perfect - it occasionally suffers from a lack of suspense and tension - but nonetheless it's an enjoyable film and I definitely recommend it.
