The wrong place at the wrong time is a perfect plot for any Hollywood movie, and is the cornerstone for the new action drama, From Paris With Love.

Directed by Pierre Morel, (who is known for his work in the film Taken) From Paris With Love is a story about a low-rank intelligence operator, who accidentally finds himself teamed up with a high-ranked agent who is on a mission to stop a terrorist attack.

James Reece (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) was used to living a luxurious life in Paris with his beautiful French girlfriend and easygoing lifestyle.

His side job as a low-level operative for the CIA, however, is his real passion and therefore does not turn down a senior level assignment when it is offered to him.

However, when he meets his new partner, US special agent Charlie Wax (John Travolta), he begins to regret his decision.

Wax is a trigger-happy, loudmouth, loose cannon who sets a massive contrast to Reece.

He wants out but when he discovers he has become a target of the terrorist group they are trying to stop, there is no turning back.

From Paris With Love takes the viewers on a comical, but super adventurous journey through Paris.

Travolta does a great job of being the bad guy/good cop and his new appearance, a baldhead, is great for the role!

In summary, Form Paris With Love is not a bad movie.
