A fast French series where the signature of Besson is clearly visible
16 November 2016 | by BeneCumbSee all my reviews

Luc Besson has clearly established himself as one of the most renown current French filmmakers, whose many creations have already obtained cult status and/or general fame. Despite the fact that the recent decade or so has seen the French crime series moving into/towards Scandinavian noir, the series like Taxi, Transporter or the one in question have their steadfast place among related series.

Unlike e.g. Tarantino, Besson does not amuse with crimes or violence, but his characters and still "very French" and able to issue funny or foolish lines during harsh situations... The cast is evenly strong and distinct, with Vincent Elbaz as Vincent Libérati and Damien Jouillerot as Tony Massart create most funny and odd situations, particularly when together... True, some scenes are too hyperbolic and some others do not provide any complement to the Series, but there are no totally ridiculous scenes as often in similar US series. Season 1 and 2 are the best and fastest, Season 3 shows some signs of tardiness and weariness (which is probably the reason why Season 4 was canceled, although Season 3 ends strangely).

All in all, a good series, along the lines of Taxi and The Transporter, but more compact than the latter. It is advisable to watch all episodes in sequence, otherwise summaries and flashbacks may be confusing, as the dynamic of personal relations of the main characters play a crucial role in understanding most acts and deeds.
