Gotta’ See Trailers: ‘From Paris With Love’

Sounds like a James Bond film, right? Well, it certainly isn’t, but what it does have is a great return to badass form by John Travolta and lots and lots of action… and f-bombs. From the writer (Luc Besson) and director (Pierre Morel) of 2008’s runaway hit “Taken”, “From Paris With Love” seems to be more of the same.

Which isn’t a bad thing, necessarily. “Taken” was a smart action film that gave star Liam Neeson the spotlight to show he was capable of being downright brutal. While Travolta has had his turn at almost everything by now, he still looks in sharp form as the bald Agent Wax. Wax is shown dispatching baddies while also making quips at his unlikely partner Richard Stevens (Jonathan Rhys Meyers). The plot boils down to foiling a terrorist plot, but turns espionage film in the final third of the trailer.

Time will tell if the team behind “Taken” can find similar success when the film hits theaters on Feb. 2, 2010.
