John Travolta shows up with a shaved head and wild eyes in From Paris With Love, a mediocre film that, nevertheless, has some great moments—because Travolta, when in top form, can be a lot of fun. He co-stars as Charlie Wax, a one-man wrecking machine sent to Paris to help alleviate a situation through the mass elimination of various bad guys. He’s partnered up with Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who plays a diplomat moonlighting as a special agent, or something like that. The action scenes pop, and Travolta hits the right notes, but Rhys Meyers drags the proceedings down. It’s worth a rental for the Travolta performance, but don’t waste a night out on this.
