5.0 out of 5 stars Great film! 31 May 2013
By Amy R
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Purchase!! 27 Nov 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I did see this film on TV and thought it was really good. I was sorry I had not recorded it. I went on "Amazon" my trusty site and there it was . So I quickly bought it. Great film! Really exciting. I do so like these foreign films, I have got used to the sub titles, I do not even notice them now. There is so much more about these films than ours. (Sorry don't want to offend)
I must add, whilst on the subject, I thought "Spiral" was the best ever, and I am very impatiently waiting for Series five. I really like "The Protectors" and of course, do not forget "inspector Montalbano" that is a MUST.
My seller was "Brill" arrived nearly before I ordered it and in great condition.
Regards "Pam.
Thank You Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Routine but exciting and well-made action movie 14 Aug 2013
By still searching VINE VOICE
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Unusual, all action 19 July 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Really getting to like Roschdy Zem films. This film was a little like 'Taken' but you can take away the Hollywood rubbish of a guy who just happens to be a CIA agent. Put in his shoes a normal guy that will do anything to get back the woman he loves after she gets kidnapped.
The film is non stop action, the only possible criticism would be that the film was just too short!

3.0 out of 5 stars French 'Die Hard' that could have tried harder 2 Nov 2011
By Tommy Dooley TOP 100 REVIEWER
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Besson should take notes.... 1 Feb 2014
Samuel Pierret is a nursing assistant who saves the wrong guy -- a thief whose henchmen take Samuel's pregnant wife hostage to force him to spring their boss from the hospital.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Have you ever wondered..? 24 Jan 2014
If you have ever wondered what would happen if a 'normal' person got caught up in an action thriller, then here it is. The film is short at 81 minutes but packs a punch and is thoroughly entertaining.

4.0 out of 5 stars Profondément formulaic.

This is a pretty good piece of drama. Intelligent, plausible enough, fast-moving, and enthralling. Excellent acting and directing, in my humble opinion.
