After a long, brutal and successful career in the Marseille mafia, Charly Matteï (Jean Reno) has turned a new leaf and gone straight. For three years, he has lived a quiet life devoted to his wife and two young children. Then, one winter morning, he is left for dead on the docks of the old port with 22 bullets in his body. Somehow he survives. And goes looking for Tony Zacchia, the only man who would dare to try to kill him. Zacchia made just one mistake: he failed.
Typical French revenge movie
- 22 Bullets review by DJ
A most enjoyable film if you enjoy the French anti hero genre. Plenty of action , lots of bad guy getting come uppence and a plot which was pure exciting action , leave your deep thinking genre hat at the door. Jean Reno never fails to entertain. Recommended for easy viewing action.
