While working at the American embassy in Paris, low-level intelligence agent James Reece gets involved in espionage when he's pulled into a terrorist plot by high-ranking but uncouth American operative Charlie Wax, who's trying to stop it.

A lot like "The Book of Eli" but this doesn't have as much depth. I was bored until John Travolta came in, the bald crazy man terrorist. He really does give one of the better performances of his career here and one of the best performances in the last year. Actually, this movie would be terrible but Travolta is so extravagant with his character that the film ends up being alright. The script though is horrendous and I hated Jonathan Rhys Myers performance as Travolta’s assistant. Mediocre movie but fantastic excitement from Travolta.
If you're just looking for a short and sweet answer too, "should I watch this movie?" The answer is that if you like action packed movies with fight scenes in famous places then yes, stop reading this and go watch the movie. However if you want to know a little more about this movie then by all means keep reading. John Travolta stars as Charlie Max in this latest action film by director Pierre Morel (Taken). Charlie Max is a trigger hungry FBI agent who loves shooting the "bad guys". He loves guns so much that he named his favorite gun "Mrs. Jones". He likes to count everyone he's killed, but about halfway through the movie his number gets so high that he just gives up. Jonathan Meyers (Mission Impossible III) also stars in this, works really well paired together with Travolta, (who really seemed to have a great time in this movie).
All in all this movie was action packed with a couple of twists in the main plot.
