One Line Review: (( French Action – Hollywood Flab) = Awesomeness! )
My gosh! This movie is so much packed with stuff, it took me a while to digest all the goodness. Not kidding. So much action, so many plot twists, thrill, suspense, and yes, CARS! This movie should be named “French and Furious!”.
I’m giving it a high 8.5/10.
“This tight French Netflix Thriller reminds us how deeply satisfying action can be when you strip it of Hollywood flab”~ Elizabeth Vincentelli, The NY Times
Lino is a mechanic with a criminal background. He gets arrested on a murder charge which he didn’t commit. The only way to prove his innocence is to locate and present before the cops a car that has proof of his innocence; One bullet.
He escapes from the cell and runs away from the cops to hunt the lost car. With extreme car enthusiasm.
What’s to Like/DisLike?
I’m gonna talk about the crazy action right off the bat. The moment the hand goes to the steering wheel, the chaos starts to spread. It wasn’t just a good action sequence but it was a well-placed action sequence.
There’s no random fight or special effect. Everything is just perfectly placed like a piece of a puzzle.
Not to mention, the writing is phenomenal. The writers knew their way around and they created a piece of art. The story has a sense of reality to it, like the scene inside of a police station and how people are treated there.
The climax is set to send chills down your spine.
I’ve found a simple way to be happy. Whenever you see a car in the poster, click on the damn movie. It won’t disappoint you. Honestly, coming from the Fast and Furious series, I didn’t have many expectations from this movie. But boy was I surprised. The subtitle might hurt your eyes a bit but it is gonna be worth it.
