You may notice that the word ‘Review’ is glaringly absent from the title today, because I can’t really give you a review of From Paris, With Love. That would require actually watching the whole movie.
But for the first time ever, I walked out of a screening. Let me recount the series of events that led to this drastic and unprecedented decision on my part.
In the spirit of full disclosure, I must mention that I have had a nasty cold all week, with bouts of insomnia to boot. Just letting you know that I was not feeling my best to begin with. I also toyed with the idea of not covering the movie because John Travolta’s performance in The Taking Of Pelham 123 permanently scarred me.
Furthermore, the trailers for Old Dogs did little to boost my confidence in the actor’s career trajectory. However, I take my duties seriously, and decided to give it a shot.
