If you’re looking for a movie that is packed with excitement, you will enjoy watching From Paris with Love. This is especially true if you are a fan of Jonathan Rhys Meyers. While the 1st half of this movie isn’t the greatest, fans of Meyers will be happy to know that the movie picks up steam from the middle to the end.
What makes this an enjoyable movie to watch is that it has an almost frantic pace. This causes the viewer to get caught up in all of the action and almost forgot that they are watching a movie. The plot of this movie is quite intriguing. It’s based around two federal agents who are racing to neutralize a terrorist threat before it’s too late. Jonathan Rhys Meyers plays one of these agents. His character is the more inexperienced of the two. However, while he hasn’t had as much experience in the field, he is eager to prove that he’s capable of handling a lot of responsibility. The other agent is played by John Travolta. He’s the senior agent of the two, and the one Meyers’ character looks to for guidance. However, while Travolta’s character has a lot of experience under his belt, that doesn’t mean that his approach or actions are predictable.
The reason that many critics feel the beginning of this film is significantly lacking is because it seems downright silly. Fortunately, once the movie reaches its middle, the actors (specifically Travolta) seem to start taking things more seriously and the movie becomes a real action packed thriller.
