Movie Summary

Pierre Morel
From Paris with Love is a 2010 action film starring John Travolta as a special agent named Charlie Wax and Jonathan Rhys Meyers as a personal assistant to the U.S. ambassador to France, James Reese. Wax is assigned to Reese as a partner due to a shortage of CIA agents in the country. Wax proves to be difficult at customs when he refuses to surrender a case of his favorite energy drink. Reese must begrudgingly let him through customs by giving him immunity just to end the ordeal Wax has caused. It turns out the cans actually contained the pieces of his favorite gun. Wax has been brought to Paris to investigate the death of the Secretary of Defense's niece. They find that terrorists were behind it and plan to bomb the U.S. embassy and also seem to have plans for Reese himself. Reese then discovers his fiance is actually a sleeper agent sent to kill him. He and Wax must take down the entire terrorist organization.moreless
