John Travolta always seems to have a good time playing bad - on the screen, anyway - and even though his character nominally is on the side of the heroes in this action tale, he walks the edge enough.
Sporting a shaved head, Travolta stars as a self-styled spy who adds instant excitement to the life of a government office drone ( Jonathan Rhys Meyers, "The Tudors") partnered with him to bust a terrorist plot in the City of Lights. The project reteams director Pierre Morel and producer and co-writer Luc Besson ("Taken"). *** DVD extras: theatrical trailer; four "making-of" documentaries; audio commentary by Morel; trivia game.
