2.0 out of 5 stars All talk & not much action!! 26 May 2012
By babyday
Format:DVD
I didnt expect this to be up to much in the first place as its not the type of film i would generally watch(i am not a action/mobster type fan),but as a Gaspard ulliel fan i obviously wanted to watch it.
Jean reno plays Milo,the leader of a bunch of gangsters & Gaspard plays his son Anton.Milo wants Anton to be the heir to the buisness but Anton has fallen in love & wants out of the criminal world.
I dont think i would even class this as an 'action movie' as there really isnt much action! Its very slow paced & dull,the whole story is a cliche,not to mention predictable & the ending is a joke.I think Gaspard fans will be very disappointed with this one & anyone who expects an 'explosive action-thriller'(as it says on the back of the dvd!)

3.0 out of 5 stars decent rental, but not much Reno nor much action 20 Nov 2011
By tallmanbaby TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This film was released in 2009, and has only now appeared on DVD. It also goes under various names, The Dead List, is probably one of the worst, Inside Ring and Ultimate Heist being other titles. All of this will set off warning sirens for the alert film fan.

I can only presume that those releasing the film were a bit surprised at just how many people bought 22 Bullets [DVD] and thought it might be worth giving this film a spin in the shops.

The product description would lead you to believe that it is non stop brutal gangster action and that Jean Reno is out there kicking some considerable butt.

The actual film lies somewhere between these preconceptions, it really is not as bad as the delay in release might lead you to think, but it is certainly not wall to wall action, and Jean Reno supplies a bulky presence, but is not the lead actor. Someone should really point out to the Director that Olympic sharpshooters could not have made some of the shots that characters made with revolvers in this film.

What we have is a tight knit crime clan, headed by Reno, taciturn and tough. His son is falling in love with a nurse, and wants to break away. There are a few decently filmed but short action sequences, but the film is really about Gaspard Ulliel (from the recent advert with the Rolling Stones song) falling in love with an attractive nurse with eye brows like Robin Day. The whole thing is filmed in an over lit chocolate box sort of way, maybe the south of France really does look like that. The first third of the film is confusing and uninvolving, but after that you do get to be quite gripped by Ulliel and his predicament. The ending is downbeat and thoughtful.

All in all not a bad film, but for renting rather than purchasing and Reno films need only add this to their collection if they are after completeness, this is not an unmissable film for Reno fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like father unlike son 18 May 2014
Format:DVD
The cover art is deceptive. This movie bears little resemblance to Ronin or any of Reno's more commercial movies. Indeed as others have commented his role is more of a support character - the patriarch to a French criminal family of Armenian extract. The opening mini history clip tries to put into context the ethnic background but in terms of the movie seems irrelevant. There is little action to be had bar an airport heist in the final quarter so if you don't like it dialogue heavy this movie won't be for you. However I loved the interaction between Reno and the son character. Father son conflict beckons when the heir apparent is keen to leave a life of crime behind and settle down with his soon to be pregnant girlfriend. It may look like Jean Reno is on cruise control here but I found his performance to be very subtle. His facial expression and stare give away his characters emotions. A man who is at heart callous and glacial. its his way or else

A clichéd aspect to proceedings revolves around an obsessive detective determined to take the family down.
As for the ending - I loved it. Potential betrayal followed by a wonderfully ambiguous final frame.
