Goofs

Valentin and his team are driving Renault EK (the red one using during gunfight with Bonnot in the crowded place). This car was product between 1913 and 1916. As Bonnot was killed in 1912, this Renault was not available at this time. This movie is based upon famous 70's TV series "Les Brigades du tigre" where a Renault EK was also erroneously used by Valentin's team. See more »

different from American counterpart
13 April 2006 | by zwang-1See all my reviews

I have seen a lot of American special force type film. The french apparently don't agree with their style. Those French guy are not good at shooting, not good at fighting, with no special equipment, no special skills... However, French inspectors are more human liking. They talk and walk like real man. They go around without knowing exactly what they are looking for. But they are more lovely than the US counterparts. They have pride and confidence on themselves and they show it proudly. They even insulted normal police force by their attitude. I had never seen the TV serials on which this film based. The inspectors are cool, the criminals are malicious and strong. The music is great, I just can not forget the rhythm for some time.
