    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Has no vital signs at all, just crushing dull repetition that makes one noisy, violent scene play exactly like the last one. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Holes in the script, overwrought camera work, dialogue that's embarrassing, and a plot device that's obvious 10 minutes into the movie - all these are major problems. show more

    So leaden and obnoxious that it actually makes you long for the John Travolta of "Old Dogs." show more

    Still, the action is ponderous too. Mr. Morel is no Kubrick, or Tarantino, just as Mr. Travolta's caricature of John Travolta is no Travolta. show more

    Morel and his crew certainly know how to stage action: the fight scenes and shootouts, the stairwell pursuits and motorway mayhem, are as good, if not better, than anything to come out of Hong Kong in a long time. show more

    This sock-it-to-'em souffle falls very quickly, unless watching Travolta trying on another faux-hip look is considered fun. show more

    Travolta has/is a blast in an action-thriller-comedy that otherwise comes up short. show more

    Stoopid fun, From Paris With Love doesn't do much for Paris or love, or your brain cells, but it flies like a crazed eagle on uppers and comes from the talented, propulsive schlocketeer Pierre Morel. show more

    It's pure comic book/popcorn action. If that's your kind of movie, it's hard to go wrong with this one. show more

    I have no frigging idea what these critics are on about....this movie sucked worse than a vacuum cleaner to the eyeball.....even as just a popcorn action movie it sucked. There was absolutely no chemistry between ANY of the so called 'actors' in this film. Bad ...real bad. Struggling to give it 1 star.

    Fun, Fun, Fun and More Fun. Didn't expect anything, just let Travolta do his thing and he did it to death. Thank you John. Great, Fun Movie.

    I found this movie to be a surprisingly fun thrill ride. Sure, a lot is over the top but not so far over as to make you roll your eyes every five seconds. The plot is thin and the plot turns are seen a mile away ********** actually handled well. I expected a wild action film and that’s exactly what it delivers. The hair-brained delegation reaction in the film’s conclusion works if *********** the female US delegate as Hillary Clinton! Travolta is great. In fact, his character is one of my favorite anti-heroes that I’ve come across in recent years. He’s wild, super competent, and unorthodox yet with his own sense of r

    Travolta has a thumb for head... and brain, too.

    Travolta is BACK! I was entertained from beginning to end, and that's why i go to the movies! I've been to Paris many times, only if the city of Paris could really be that action pack and fun!
