Hyper-kinetic 1990s Euro-action soaked in techno and blood, not unlike like the work of Luc Besson or films like Run Lola Run. The action sequences were fast-paced, off the wall, and inventive (not to mention simultaneously funny and brutally violent). The bank robbery brings Killing Zoe to mind due to its comedic brutality. In the end, a fantastically over the top action film with lots of style.
This was one hell of a ride, full of crazy chracters, Kounen's frenetic direction and one crazy gun fight scene. Always been a fan of Tcheky Karyo and I loved his performance in this film, he's just nuts. Cassell is badass and I really loved Monica Bellucci as a crazy deaf woman (crazy seems to be the way to the describe everything about this film).
This movie took badassery to another level. Grotesquely twisted humor and visual exaggerations endows a band of lowlifes with a charm that u rarely see in an action movie. It is rude, ugly and at some times stupid -definitely one of my all time favorites!
