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.
Toutes les forces de la police d'une région sont un jour lancées sur les traces d'un gang qui défraye la chronique au long de braquages multiples. La lutte se durcit sérieusement le jour où Christini, La Hyène, un flic pourri, décide de faire de l'élimination de cette bande dirigée par le Dobermann, une affaire personnelle ..... Que c'est mauvais !
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!
