Product description

Product Description

After a long, brutal and successful career in the Marseille mafia, Charly Matteï (Jean Reno) has turned a new leaf and gone straight. For three years, he has lived a quiet life devoted to his wife and two young children. Then, one winter morning, he is left for dead on the docks of the old port with 22 bullets in his body. Somehow he survives. And goes looking for Tony Zacchia, the only man who would dare to try to kill him. Zacchia made just one mistake: he failed.

About the Actor

Born in Casablanca, Morocco, to Spanish parents (from Andalucía) who moved to North Africa to seek work, Jean Reno settled in France at 17. He began studying drama and has credits in French television and theater as well as films. His first two marriages both ended in divorce, and he had two children with each of them. He keeps homes in Paris and Los Angeles.

`The Professional returns!' screams the UK DVD sleeve for 22 Bullets aka L'Immortel in an attempt to pass this Luc Besson-produced Jean Reno-starring revenge thriller off as a sequel to his 1994 hit (and with a kidnapping subplot you can bet they'll try passing it off as another Taken Stateside), but it's more of a traditional gangster revenge thriller with a very different main character. Charley Mattei isn't a childlike hitman but a smart Marseille crime lord whose retirement is crudely shattered by an attempted hit that leaves him with 22 bullets in his body and a desire to return them with interest to his would-be assassins. After going to great pains to establish a multitude of suspects implying a whodunit element, it doesn't take him long to discover which of his childhood friends and cohorts is behind it so we can get down to the business of killing them off one by one inbetween the odd car chase, shootout and torture, all of which is handled with slick efficiency by veteran actor and sometime writer-director Richard Berry. It may be very loosely inspired by real gangster Jackey Le Mat and his 70s gang war but it's neither biopic nor a realistic depiction of the Marseille underworld and there's nothing new on offer, but as an undemanding star vehicle it works well and benefits from more than decent supporting turns from Kad Merad, Jean-Pierre Darroussin and Marina Fois.

Unfortunately Anchor Bay's UK DVD disappoints by cropping the image from its original 2.35:1 to 1.85:1 (and it's not a case of `unpicking' the masking to reveal more image on the top and bottom of the frame: from the widescreen extracts on the making of featurette included in the surprisingly decent extras package they've cropped off a lot of information from the left and right of frame).

This has to be the best film Jean Reno has made since Leon!! A very good gritty and very violent thriller that has a massive impact on you when you watch it, it has a fantastic story that you can get into straight away and feel for the characters, its your typical revenge plot with a few original ideas, this movie is nothing like Taken its a totally different set up!! Jean Reno is great, the movie is very bloody, plenty of shootouts!! The movie is in French so it does have subtitles, theres are a few good features too like a making of also subtitled, if you like a good gritty realistic revenge thriller then this is the film for you!!!

Things get off to a very, VERY bad start with Anchor Bay's infuriating DVD version of Richard Berry's crime thriller 22 BULLETS [L'Immortel]. Released theatrically with a 2.39:1 aspect ratio, the disc has been cropped/altered to 1.78:1 (16:9), which seriously interferes with every composition in the entire film. To make matters a thousand times worse, all of the clips and trailers in the supplemental materials are correctly framed at the CinemaScope ratio. The DVD versions released in France, Sweden, Spain and Canada are correctly framed, so why not the UK edition? This is COMPLETELY unacceptable.

Adding insult to injury, the film itself - based on a true story - is excellent, toplining the magnificently grizzled Jean Reno as a former gangster whose decision to 'go straight' causes his former partner-in-crime to order his execution (the '22 bullets' of the English title). Big mistake! Monsieur Reno survives the attack and isn't best pleased with his erstwhile colleagues, all of whom suffer the inevitable consequences. Cue scenes of bone-crunching violence and screeching car chases through the formerly placid streets of Marseilles.

An urban thriller which takes the facts in the case as little more than a starting-point for its own aesthetic, director Berry compromises the material by opting for rapid-fire editing and eye-straining 'shakey-cam' whenever the action heats up. But he redeems himself by focusing primarily on the characters and their interactions, before and after the excrement hits the wind machine, courtesy of Monsieur Reno's picturesque rampage. The balance between the film's commercial and artistic ambitions is judged correctly for the most part, and the acting is solid throughout.

Still, it's almost completely ruined by the cropped framing.

This is simply a GOOD film, not great, just good. A bit of a shame as it could have been excellent. I'm sure some of you will disagree.

Fans of Jean Reno (Leon and Ronin) and arguably modern French films, will find enough here to like. The story, acting and sparse action and drama is all quite good, led by Reno. Nothing new, but what it does it does well.

This French action film follows an ex-gangster from Marseille who is shot 22 times and left for dead. He loves classical music and after attempts to finish him off in hospital, he seeks out the answers of why and who wants to kill him, embarking on a new family war.

It is very French and unfortunately not as good as Mesrine,Taxi, 36, Mr 73 etc, it all feels for me that without Reno it would be much worse and it isn't gangster enough. It is probably aiming at a wider audience. Not enough action at first and slow to get going: Reno playing Godfather springs to mind, harsh for some this will read, but Reno and co are capable of better, this is 2010.

Of 22 bullets, only half hit!
