3 out of 10 2 discs and a bit of a trawl...
Brock from Limerick, 28 Apr 2010
A work colleague had said this might come on 2 discs and indeed it did. I don't really understand why this film was in 2 parts, could have made a more pacy single film I feel. The opening scene of film1 pays homage to 24 with split screens and the like, but it slowly grinds from then on with only a few highlights to talk of, one of them being the lead actor who is quite good in this. Ultimatately though, the main character - whilst charismatic - isn't all that nice so devoting 4 hours of your li

5 out of 10 absolutely awesome
Graham from Dublin, 17 Feb 2010
went into this film with high expectations which is usually setting yourself up for trouble, but wow... vincent cassel hung around for the right director to make this movie... exciting, adrenaline-filled, insightful and sometimes just plain crazy, that even if is dramatised for the big screen, its an amazing story depicted wonderfully. forget about all the action hollywood movies you've seen (maybe, not Goodfellas) this one is THE best for the past 10 years. and remember his name is not mes-rine

4 out of 10 Quality
Emmet from Wexford, 18 Feb 2010
A must see! Gripping stuff from start to finish. The fact that this is based on a true life character is incredible if a little disturbing. Vicent Cassel is amazing the whole way through and the support cast produce the goods with some familiar faces. This has been one of the best movies I've seen in a while. So clear an afternoon and get stuck into both parts. It comes close to 4 hours but you won't be disappointed!

4.5 out of 10 Meserine 1and 2
domhnall from Limerick, 20 Feb 2010
Outstanding performance by vincent cassell in the lead role as the formidable and yet strangely likeable Jacque Meserine. The film comes in a part 1 and part 2 format superbly shot and has real sense of authenticity about the whole film.Only problem I have with the film is I cant stop thinking I can speak French after watching it . A must see movie for real film lovers . say tres be in bonjour.

What's it about....
From the director of Assault on Precinct 13... Jacques Mesrine, last of the great French gangsters, was declared Public Enemy Number One during his lifetime. He regularly finished atop the list of newsmakers in opinion polls. His spectacular death, shot full of holes by police at close range in the middle of Paris, put the crowning touch on his legend. Nearly thirty years after his demise in 1979, the myth of Jacques Mesrine is very much alive. Now, for the first time,...
