James Reece is trying hard to become a secret agent while working at the American Embassy in Paris. He is smart and plays chess And he is in love with a beautiful French woman, who has just asked him to marry her, and now his dream is coming true, he is taking action in the fight against drugs and terrorism, because he has been assigned to Charlie Wax, an “unorthodox” agent who may not play by the rules but gets things done.
Before I go any further I will say one thing: Do NOT watch this film.
And I mean that with all my heart, do not watch it! It is terrible. The first ten minutes are quasi-serious and maybe hint at an interesting film, and then John Travolta arrives and it turns into crazy meets stupid who then get together with ignorant and moronic.
Only worse than that sounds.
Honestly this film sucks so much that I had no problem ignoring large parts of it and folding clothes to put away in the hot-press, in fact, discussion of the folding of clothes is probably of more interest that the crap that does on in this film. It makes no sense. It is racist. It tries to pretend that Travolta is a convincing *young* action star by hiding his tummy through the judicious use of scarves. It has pointless action scenes that are boring and utterly lacking in flair or style. It bores. It fails to engage. It. is. crap.
My verdict, bleurgh!
