5 Fantastic French Actionernijjer | 23/01/2010 | See all nijjer's reviews (1)Parts 1 & 2 are both absolutely superb. Vincent Cassel is (as always) spellbinding as Mesrine (pronounced "may-reen," not "mes-reen," as he later insists to cops and journalists). The 60s & 70s clothes, hairstyles and cars are brilliantly realised, and the fact that it is all a true story is the icing on the cake. There isn't a dull moment, and the car chases reminded me of French Connection & Ronin. Don't let the fact it is subtitled put you off - it's a must see.
