When we saw John Travolta hamming it up in the trailer for From Paris With Love we were, frankly, terrified about the prospect of seeing this movie. Sadly, according to the critics, that's the best part.
"...settles for routine and goes through the motions..."
— Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
— Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
"Presumably pitched as a fusion of Training Day and Crank 2 — but ultimately nowhere near as fun as that premise probably sounds — From Paris With Love practically strains itself to avoid doing anything the slightest bit innovative or clever."
— Andrew Barker, Variety
"Travolta has/is a blast in an action-thriller-comedy that otherwise comes up short on all three counts."
