If, like me, you've been waiting an age to get this from the UK, then don't bother, you're best getting the French edition like I did. But really it's not even worth bothering with that, as this is the worst Taxi yet, with the silliest of plots, not much variation, and Emileien getting stupider by the moment, leaving only Sami Narceri to look good in this. Why Gibriel Cisé had to be in this is beyond me, he doesn't really have much of a role either. Oh and the commissioner is just so awful in this one, you'll be screaming in pain.
You don't believe me? Look at the French Amazon site, it averages about 2 stars, and really because the plot is so thin, with the crew supposed to look after a Belgian terrorist, I really don't need to say more, because I bet you can guess what happens next and where it leaves everyone?
The only good thing about this film is the rap - Sniper's lyrics are brilliant at the end, but they're not really about Taxi 4, and the instrumentals inside the film are smashing. There are a few car chases but they're nothing like they were in Taxi 1 or 2; and Daniel only gets to fire up his turbos once in the entire film, what a joke!
Hopefully Optimum will do a good job DVD wise, with some good extras. I suspect this will get a 12 from the BBFC, though it does have some drug usage.
Not really worth waiting, if you are desperate, get it in France, but you'll need to be pretty good with your French, not that it's that hard to understand anyway due to the nature of the movie.
Poor, ca suffit!
