This is way good. The action sequences are amazing and the actress is great. The story is okay. My friend was impressed with the French rap music at the end. Good times. Don't forget the man who produced this: Luc Besson. I saw it about 1 yr ago.

It's really just a series of high octane shoot outs and bone crunching fight sequences as a buddy duo join forces to reach their respective objectives; the bomb and the rescue of a resident's sister. Thankfully there's no corny love interest and the buddy partnership works quite well because of the lack of idiotic one liners and macho …
