Metacritic Score

  • 70

    The New York Times Manohla Dargis

    It's pleasurable nonsense and another reminder that one of the great pulls of cinema is the spectacle of other bodies in blissful motion.

    Los Angeles Times

    This time, with Besson scripting / producing and Patrick Alessandrin directing, it amounts to a raucous and colorfully junky helping of seconds.

    Variety

    The fight sequences (choreographed by Raffaelli) are especially creative, with the combatants using any available object, including a priceless Van Gogh painting, to get the job done.
