John Travolta Flaunts It in Red Band Trailer for From Paris with Love
01.10.10 by REELZ
A buddy cop flick which pairs a sophisticated Paris investigator (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) with his boorish and foul-mouthed American counterpart Charlie Wax (John Travolta), From Paris with Love aims to balance out the action and suspense with a truly over-the-top performance by Travolta. While the earlier previews featured Travolta shooting off his big guns, this latest red-band trailer puts his big mouth front and center.
Whether trying out some Elvis moves, or showing off his cultural sensitivity, Wax is a cartoonish ugly American, played for laughs and apparently destined to save the day despite his preference for resolving any problem with the most outrageous and violent response possible. Trying to keep Wax out of trouble definitely keeps his partner busy full time.
