Some amusing moments as Besson and Morel can deliver, but this movie really suffers from casting and writing. Casting-wise, Travolta and Rhys-Meyers just have no real connection… a buddy film really only works if they bond. Travolta is so frenetic and untruthful, that there are few moments that they actually talk or experience the same things. Writing-wise, there are just no lasting consequences or emotions from the events; even those that should scar the heck our of our hero. Some great action and well construted from a plot POV, but not a must-see and not high in the Besson cannon for re-viewing.
