The hero of the piece is a family man, studying for his nursing qualifications and helping his wife who is expecting their first child. He finds himself plunged into a mess of criminal gangs, assassinations, rogue flics, and all at break-neck speed. The constant driving pace of the movie (there are few quiet periods) helps engage our senses which makes figuring out all the angles just that bit harder (like singing the Marseillaise while listening to the Sex Pistols). The film makes no pretensions to being high art but is a good action policier; the use of a Mr Average (instead of a Jason Statham martial arts equivalent) as hero certainly added to the piece

Format: DVD
Familiar characters carry this gritty, fast paced action thriller and the unfamiliar French locations lend a stark urban setting to the proceedings. Giles Lellouche plays an everyman hero, forcefully coerced into a dark criminal underworld where greed blurs the line between good and bad. I found him an appealing lead, very easy to route for when the chips are down. Despite being a run of the mill thriller, there is some creative flair on show, an exciting foot chase in the underground is rather good and a pivotal scene which is given to the viewer out of sequence are the kind of touches I especially like. Roshidi Zem again carries himself with leading man gravitas, his worldly face and ice cold eyes belie something of a quiet rage; I hope to see him in more weighty fare in time to come. I can forgive action thrillers most things and did so again during the final reel when the screenplay, althought exciting, veered towards the outrageous!

Format: DVD
This has nothing to do with the classic Lee Marvin movie of the same name: there is nothing enigmatic or deep about it at all. Basically, it's the story of a home and (very pregnant) wife loving everyman who happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time as all hell breaks loose about him! How he tries to extricate himself from this `unfortunate' situation forms the basis of the plot, which is full of criminal nasties and crooked cops so it's a job for him and us to know exactly who can be trusted!

Despite being slightly cliched, it's a brilliantly made thrill a minute movie which manages to be engaging, entertaining and oddly humorous - in parts!

People say this is a French 'Taken' which isn't really accurate. Sure, a man's pregnant wife gets kidnapped but the husband is not ex CIA and just a normal run of the mill person.
I thought it was extremely good though, it was fast paced throughout with good twists through the film that didn't need a lot of brainpower to stick with.
World cinema is where it's at lately with a lot of good films being made that don't have to bow down to the clichéd Hollywood stereotypes which in turn opens doors to good inventive films like this one.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a French crime thriller which has borrowed a bit from the `Die Hard' franchise. It tells the story of trainee nurse Samuel Pierret (Gilles Lellouche), whose wife is very heavily pregnant. One night a man is taken into the Hospital after he has suffered a stomach laceration and been run over by a (quite fast) motorbike. He is on a ventilator, and not in a good way. Someone cuts the life saving tube and he starts to suffocate. Samuel spots it just in time and saves the mans life.

That was a big mistake; this guy is a wanted high calibre thief - Hugo Sartet (Roscidy Zem). His compatriots have followed Samuel home and then decide to take his wife hostage and force him to `spring' their boss (who has made a miraculous recovery). Samuels wife has been told she is in danger of losing the baby and has to spend the rest of her pregnancy lying down, so this brutal interruption sends Sam a bit desperate. It turns out the docs were wrong as she is able to do all sorts of derring do. He then decides to do all it takes to get her back.

He goes back into work (after a night shift) and puts a rather crude plan into operation, meanwhile the Gendarmes have taken fingerprints from the unknown guy and are heading back to ask some pesky questions. The cops are also investigating the murder of an uber rich business guy, but are the matters linked?

Well this tries to avoid formulaic plot developments, and has some brilliant touches. I liked the French police driving Alfa Romeos. There is an however, and that is the number of plot holes. If you just go with the flow, then this is an excellent action movie, with full throttle action, double crosses and plot twists, but the contrivances just took something away for me.

Format: Blu-ray
As far as crime thrillers go the French are at the top of their game at the moment and this offering does not disappoint in any way. In fact I can't fault it at all. The action is gritty and realistic and the settings are just so....French? There is no glamour in this world and the detectives are as gritty and authentic as the criminals. It is very hard to get into the plot without spoilers but suffice it to say that the plot twists and turns with plenty of dirty deeds and betrayal and the action never lets up till the end. The director can even be forgiven the penultimate scene in the hospital because it shows the hardbitten lady detective finding a human side.
The blu ray print is excellent and maintains sharpness without the sometimes artificial glossiness of Hollywood movies.
