Let the action begin!
From director Pierre Morel and writer Luc Besson-- the team behind last year's sleeper hit Taken-- comes their newest action flick From Paris With Love.
The film stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Richard Stevens, a low-ranking intelligence operative working in the office of the U.S. Ambassador in France. Stevens takes on more than he bargained for when he partners with wisecracking, fast-shooting, high-ranking U.S. agent Charlie Wax(John Travolta), who's been sent to Paris to stop a terrorist attack.
Travolta sports a new bald-head mustache combo, and Rhys Meyers showcases that an Irish actor CAN do a near flawless American accent. A bit of a change in roles for Rhys Meyers, but Travolta seems right at home playing it cool/crazy.
The trailer looks fun. But the action looks surprisingly more slap-stick, a sharp contrast from the no-nonsense Bourne-esque fighting that Liam Neeson did in Taken. Also, play a little game by counting how many times Rhys Meyers' character says Travolta's name, "Wax."
"We can't do that Wax!" "No Wax" "I look like and played Elvis, Wax!"
So those aren't exact quotes by any means, but you'll see what I'm talking about.
Check out the trailer of AWESOME and let us know what you think!
