Time Out says

2 out of 5 stars

Aging Parisian nightclub owners Milan (Olivier Marchal) and Victor (Jacques Gamblin) are jostled from their everyday lives when a gangster (Carlo Brandt) they’d sent to jail returns to the City of Light. In lieu of an actionable plan, the former business partners catch up over cocktails, but the honeymoon is brief—thanks to the revenging jailbird’s penchant for carnage. Despite the ingredients for a rousing shoot-’em-up (two-timing hit men, a slo-mo shoot-out, chartreuse-filtered scenes in Mexico) it’s hard to buy the leads’ mastery of this world of fist-pumps and violence.
