The title "From Paris With Love" is a reference to James Bond and a big fat wink to the audience that this movie is not to be taken seriously. John Travolta and Jonathan Rhys Myers play two CIA operatives who run amok in Paris. Myers is the low-level agent with moral and decorum while Travolta is a wreckless, violent and bad-ass agent who do whatever it takes to get a result. It's a really fast paced thrill ride that never lets up. Leave all rationale at the door and just strap in. Who cares about plot or story when its simply fun to watch? Travolta is awesome and I'd say it's perhaps his best performance. French director Luc Besson writes & produces so many underrated action/thriller movies (Taken, Transporter, Unleashed etc) and his style is unistakable. Story is rarely as important as the style. From Paris With Love is a well made, taught and exciting action thriller. I loved it!
