Wasabi: 2001 French-Japanese flick by Luc Besson that didn’t really know what kind of film it wanted to be. Touted as an action film, but there weren’t any proper fights ’til over an hour in, and what little action there was looked ridiculous (like a surreal manga adaptation). Was supposed to be a cop film, but was more like a parody of the naked gun, which is already a parody. The story was very thin and the acting’s pretty weird as the cast all play horrible stereotypes. On the other hand it looks pretty good. Definitely a case of style over substance (the default audio track is dubbed English!) but worth a look if you like Besson’s stuff. Would put it in the same category as the original Taxi or a crap re-make of Black Rain!!!

Score: 6/10
