But, at the moment Paula and Michel decide to escape the underworld, Paula realizes that her hands are tied to a paid deal she has made with a powerful English narcotics baron, Rudi Dancer (55).

Jason C (es) wrote: If your interest in cinema was limited purely to explosive fight scenes then this would be essential viewing for these alone. Assuming you want something more, there is plenty to recommend this beyond the core action audience - this is no facile gangster flick with Pencak Silat thrown in as a gimmick, it's a complete package of blended genres that delivers, shall we say, quite a punch. Hopefully some of the goons in Raid 3 will bring a gun to a knife/fist fight...

Danusia B (es) wrote: Fun movie. Queen Latifah and Jimmy Fallon are fun to watch. They could of gotten a better looking model though, Gisele Bunchen's face is not attractive and her acting isn't good and her lack of sex appeal is especially apparent in the one scene where she screams "die" while shooting a gun. I mean, it's funny but I don't think that's what they were going for.
Mike C (nl) wrote: These stories are not as good as the original, with the big exception of the last one, which is by far my favorite. Again if you like the short story format then you will like this. Even for those who like this format it may be boring, so if you really don't like it skip to the last story.

Stuart M (gb) wrote: A good film that manages to milk some effective suspense out of its needlessly convoluted plot. Kudos for not making the old Nazi villains any more cliched and exaggerated than they needed to be.
Oliver G (es) wrote: This movie kicks ASS!!! They edited footage from the real raid into the film that made it feel that much more real. Even the special effects still hold up in some scenes. A great, fun movie :)

Mercenry voit une ex gloire de la guerre du golfe, devenu mercenaire, se faire recruter par la CIA pour une mission pas nette en Afrique. Arrive sur place, l'armee francaise fait foirer leur mission, Steven s'est fait baiser, il se retourne contre ses employeurs. Le scenario est totalement incomprehensible, les personnages se trahissent a la chaine, le film lorgne du cote espionnage a la Jason Bourne, mais le fait bien evidemment de maniere totalement ratee. On ne ressent jamais les enjeux, les acteurs sont tous plus nazes les uns que les autres, Steven le premier. Le mechant du film a un jeu proprement hallucine, il aime parler bizarrement pour avoir l'air cruel, il en devient proprement drole. Les scenes d'action sont bien evidemment ratees, on se contente d'un decoupage pauvre pour les fusillades. Pour les combats mano a mano, il n'y en a qu'un, entre Steven et un tueur, dans les toilettes. Hilarant de bout en bout, Steven ne se donne meme plus la peine de mouliner, il enchaine les peches qui passent a 30cm du visage de l'adversaire, mais on entend quand meme un bruit de choc. C'est fun. Sinon il projette son adversaire qui fait des vols planes completement pas credible, puisqu'on voit bien qu'il court lui meme vers le mur. Le cadrage essaie tant bien que mal de faire oublier les kilos de Steven, et de le faire passer pour un tombeur aupres de la bombasse du film. Pas credible une seule seconde. Bref, tout est rate, mais ca en devient naivement marrant des fois. A voir pour les amateurs du Saumon Agile.
Em J (ag) wrote: This movie depends on the cinematography and the implied stupidity of the average human being. It is riddled with horrific inaccuracies. In fact the entire premise for the climax is impossible, inaccurate and down right offensive. It is almost instantly apparent that they never checked facts or worked with an equestrian consultant. The costume designer and the location scout should be commend as those two aspects were the only redeeming qualities.
