Paris is known to have problems with pickpockets and Michael Mason is one of the cities sneakiest thieves and now he's accidentally led himself in more trouble than he can deal with.
When Mason lifts a bag from someone, he opens it to discover it contains a whole world of trouble - a bomb. Hot on Mason's tale is a CIA field agent by the name of Sean Briar. The CIA's records show that there's far more to Mason's criminal record than just pickpocketing people but Briar soon learns that there's far more to this case than Mason and he is probably just a fall guy.
Together the thief and CIA operative must go off the books and find the real culprit behind a terrorist threat. As the duo dig deeper into the criminal underworld, they soon find themselves with ever increasing amounts of enemies - on both sides of the law. Whatever unfolds, we know this Bastille Day won't be a usual one.
Ethan Runner is a formidable Secret Service Agent ready to retire from his dangerous employment in a bid to spend more time with his wife and teenage daughter, who is unaware of his real job and is in the process of forgiving him for leaving her and her mother for his job. However, after contracting a deadly illness, he discovers that he could be dead within days if he doesn't take a dose of a new experimental drug that's only available from exclusive governmental sources. With Secret Service authorities determined to keep Ethan on side given that he is one of their best agents, the drug is offered as a reward if he completes one more assignment. But with it coinciding with his duties as a father, just how is he going to manage to juggle his professional and his family life at the same time?

Femme Fatale is an exception to this to this rule. There is no question that Brian De Palma's latest is a steaming pile, and you can smell smug all over what he thinks are clever film techniques (split screens, operatic slow motion, etc). But just before I started throwing stuff at the screen in a show of displeasure, something magical happened--I laughed. And once I started laughing at Femme Fatale, I couldn't stop. The resentment felt for losing two hours of my life to this confused, badly acted, illogical, exploitative jewel heist-cum-meditation on fate was replaced with the giddy revelation that I had become involved in a cinematic experience on par with Paul Verhoeven's Showgirls.

For almost five years now, Hollywood studios have beentrying to duplicate the success of "Gladiator"by making the same big-budget historical battle epic over ("TheLast Samurai") and over ("Troy")and over ("KingArthur") and over ("Alexander").
Each movie has re-imagined history from a modern, let's-keep-an-open-mindperspective and hewed to a shopworn formula in which the hero rallies hismen against great odds and for a greater good. He invariably leads theminto the same blood-and-mud war scenes, which are always shot in the samestaccato slow-motion that characterizes the chaos of combat but forgetsthe audience needs to be kept abreast of who is winning. The hero alsoalways finds time to romance a beautiful woman from another culture.

One thing mostof them definitely have in common is that they've bombed at the box office.
