A race through the subways and streets of Paris ensues, and the body count rises.
Can Samuel evade the cops and the criminal underground and deliver his beloved to safety?......
at just nearly ninety minutes long, this movie doesn't give you time to catch your breath. It's as if someone has been watching those ever increasingly silly Besson produced movies, and made it realistic and plausible.
It's shot well, and the cast are magnificent in their respective roles. It never gets boring, and the short running time time doesn't leave the narrative redundant.
And despite the many plot twists, it's rich in its storytelling.
Forget Taken 2, and see this, you'll thank yourself.
