Luc Besson Francja, 2013

Palmat's rating of the film The Family

This could have been a really good movie if the tone and feel had not been so damn uneven. Bouncing from comedy to gleefully sadistic violence and onwards to broad farce it seems that Besson does not know what kind of movie he's making. The cast is pretty solid and the script has a lot of potential but the film never takes off. It simmers and keeps you entertained but never enthralled, Shame...
