Reno Does Gabin And Does Him Very Well

Retired Marseilles crime kingpin Jean Reno is shot by a hit squad that puts 22 bullets in him. Who ordered the hit, and why? Police officer Marina Fois, whose husband was killed in the line of duty, is put in charge of the investigation. Reno refuses to answer any questions, walks out of the hospital, and disappears. Soon his old associates start dropping dead, and his old friend Kad Merad orders all-out war. Jean Gabin could have played this role once upon a time, but no one has any reason to complain about Reno's performance as the world-weary gangster with a moral code. It's set in Marseilles, and that 2600-year-old city shows its age. For those who complain they don't make 'em like that any more, here's proof they do.

22 Bullets

Charly Matteï was a notorious Marseilles gangster until one day he gave up his life of crime to enjoy a peaceful life with his wife and two children. All goes well for three years then his past catches up with him and he is gunned down in a car park. They leave him for dead with twenty two bullets in him… unfortunately for them they didn't make sure he was dead. He gradually recovers and pays a visit to his attackers and tells them that he will kill them all… not straight away though; they will have to live in fear for a while first. He also intends to go after the man who ordered the hit; his former friend Tony Zacchia. Of course Zacchia still wants Charly dead and also goes after his friends. If that weren't enough police officer Marie Goldman wants to find the man responsible for her husband's murder by an unknown gangster. This is a solid revenge thriller. The attack on Charly is brutal as are many of the later killings. From the moment Charly is shot the tension is high right to the end. There is plenty of action; including car chases, shootouts and a kidnapping. Charly may have a moral code but none of those who tried to kill him is safe; his enemies have no such code and will target anybody to get to Charly. Jean Reno carries the film as Charly but his isn't the only good performance; the rest of the cast are pretty solid too. The film makes good use of its South of France setting especially as Charly, on a motorbike, is chased by two carloads of gunmen. Overall I'd certainly recommend this to fans of Jean Reno or anybody who enjoys revenge thrillers. These comments are based on watching the film in French with English subtitles.

Good Action Movie, Horrible English Tranlation

If you don't speak or understand French, don't watch this movie. The translation in the subtitles is atrocious. Seems like the translator couldn't speak a lick of French or knew very little English. Movie starts out OK but bogs down trying to justify too much Jean Reno's role as Charlie, a nice man with high morales that just happens to have been (focus on the pas tense) a vicious mob boss. Good story, and Jean Reno keeps it moving in the last 30 minutes. I kinda hoped that the lady detective would play a more active role and at least killed somebody, but at least she didn't meddle too much in Charlie's payback.
