Harmless Shoot Em' Up Escapism

By Dustin Rowles | Trailers | September 17, 2009 | Comments ()

Whatever. Below is the trailer for From Paris with Love, Pierre Morel's follow-up to Taken. This one stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers (he of the seductively evil eyes) and John Travolta (he of the movie whoredom). Set in Paris, it's about a young employee (Rhys Meyers) in the office of the US Ambassador, who hooks up with an American spy (Travolta) looking to stop a terrorist attack in the city.

Granted, it's the evil-looking Travolta (see, also, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3), who I actually dig. And the vibe is that of Taken: Paper thin plot, decent actressin', and harmless shoot em' up escapism, the sort of movie that's keenly attractive when there's nothing else in the theaters.
