From writer/producer LUC BESSON -- the legendary action filmmaker behind such adrenaline-pumping classics as The Professional and The Fifth Element - comes this hilarious high-impact adventure starring JEAN RENO (Godzilla, Mission Impossible) as a burly French cop traveling to Japan to settle an old debt. With his old-school tactics and pit-bull disposition, police detective Hubert Fiorentini (Reno) is all business. But his routine existence is disrupted when he learns the only woman he ever loved is dead. Summoned to Tokyo to settle her estate, he soon suspects her death was no accident. When he discovers that he is the father of her spirited teenaged daughter, things really get complicated.
This high-energy Dirty Harry in Japan stars Jean Reno (The Professional) as a maverick Paris cop with sledgehammer fists and a short temper. Promoted to sudden fatherhood when he "inherits" a spunky Japanese daughter (Ryoko Hirosue) he never knew, he becomes her droopy guardian angel, protecting her from an army of yakuza gangsters. Written and produced by Luc Besson, the former fashionista director of Euro-sleek shoot-'em-ups, this colorful B-movie blast is as gritty as an oil slick on a water slide but packed with explosive action. Director Gerard Krawczyk punctuates his gunfights with the Hong Kong school of recoil (bullets blast victims across the screen) and an undercurrent of humor. As long as you don't lean too hard on such niggling details as logic, legality, and the laws of physics, this silly, splashy, family bonding bulletfest is a spirited good time. --Sean Axmaker
he's a good actor but the movie script is kind of cheap and fantasyPublished 1 month ago by riq fdez
Jean Reno was as good as always - he is a bit of a one trick pony, but I like him. The plot was interesting enough to keep your attention. The Japanese funeral home was a new one. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Susan B
Can't beat Jean Reno for that subtle French style of acting but with lots of action!Published 2 months ago by Hal Shearer
Waste of money. Stupid story, dumb acting, not funny, not scary. I like French movies, not this one!Published 3 months ago by Jacob
One of my favorite films.
I only wish there was the option to turn off the subtitles.

Both my wife and I enjoyed this movie immensely. Jean Reno is excellent. We watched this because it was written by Luc Besson.Published 5 months ago by Steven J. Asaro
