Nothing like a good old fashion car chase through the beautiful towns of France.All that happens in this overlong classic piece of "lets stick to what we know genre", is car chase... Plot ... Car chase... Plot... Yes we got it... No we don't... Yes we got it!
Harmless thrills with a decent enough cast. Your Highness De Niro need not act for thou has the natural look of a thousand faces. The teaming between him and Reno works a treat.
Frankenheimer loves to put the action amongst a crowded scenery where innocent people fall in harms way of the overabundance of shoot-them-up and smash-them-up scenes.
As for the plot, well... Something about grown men chasing an ice-skating case with plenty of double crossings going on. You know? The usual stuff!Go and treat yourself for a decent Weekend matinee that will keep your senses stimulated with a script that respects its audience regardless of the boys-own mayhem.
