Please, don't waste your money on this film .

They've made a whole fuss about it in Paris so I rushed over to see it but just like Monica Belucci says in the last scene "Je me sens vide, completement vide" (I feel empty, completely empty) I left my local UGC cinema feeling the same way.

Monica Bellucci is a really beautiful and talented actress whom I admire, but she got lost in the movie with the same dull look and it seems she didn't like her role too...

Well worth watching .

There is absolutely no chemistry between our heroic couple, there is nothing to hook the spectator, and everyone looks thoroughly bored throughout.

Follow a team of cold-blooded, adrenaline-addicted of french secret agents on what seems to be a "simple" fire and forget mission.

If this is true then the spy business has to be the most boring profession on earth.

Well, exception made for the cliché looking villains who kill a French agent in the strong first minutes of the movie: they look like the stereotype gang members of Pablo Escobar.

Exciting as well as surprising screenplay by Jean Cosmos , Ludovic Schoendoerffer and the same filmmaker Frederic Schoendoerffer .

Colorful and evocative cinematography by Jean Pierre Sauvaire .

Manipulation and Betrayal in the Dangerous, Lonely and Empty Lives of Secret Agents .

Monica Bellucci and Vincent Cassel team up again after "Irreversible" in this decent movie that I recommend due to its simplicity and gripping storyline.

the tandem swim at sunset) this film is absolutely empty.

This enjoyable picture contains action , thrills , intrigue , car pursuits , struggles , including a violent fight between Vincent Cassell and his nemesis Najwa Nimri .

The girl said at the end she was "Empty, utterly empty".

"Agents Secrets" is a bitter and realistic original story of manipulation and betrayal, showing the dangerous, lonely and empty lives of secret agents, where the interest of a nation is above any principle of ethics, as Machiavelli observed and wrote in the Fifteenth Century.

Although the scenario has some potential, it seems they've missed the point and got bored in the story telling.

Watch the zoom-in shot at the beginning from outer space to the Meditteranean, it is alright, though a bit cliché these days, then go demand your money back for those of you who have accidentally bought your tickets in advance.

This exciting yarn is adult-oriented judging by robust pacing and character portraying.

I enjoyed it,and i don't think its very much different than Hollywood,with just a touch of French style.

though the hi-tech wins but it is boring than matrix 1, why?

My opinion hasn't changed: action isn't unforgettable, the story is boring, and the characters dull: even before the troubles come, the spies are depressive, mournful!


The few moments something "psychologic" is happening, it is far too cliché to be of any merit.

Even the ending is frankly dull.

Well, that was boring .
