Vincent Cassel heads up a cast of french gansters in this dipiction of the scandelous life of Jaques
Mesrine (May-reen), This is a rollercoaster ride of violence, sex, and prison escapes that will have you cheering for the bad guys if you aren't careful. This movie is a fun romp that gives little insight as to why Mesrine is how he is, which really isn't important. Just get in, shut up, and enjoy the ride!
Kudos to Clint Eastwood for being a great storyteller, Matt Damon for mastering the art of being
believable, and a subject matter that we all will eventually face one day. The ongoing theme in this movie is death and rebirth; the end of something and the beginning of something better. The subtle, but haunting message is that- once we come to the end of ourselves, a new life is waiting to come into play. Just don't be afraid of it. I liked this movie, but wouldn't recommend it as a sure-fire answer on the explanation of life after death, seeing that it dwells more on those living. The "light at the end of the tunnel" in this movie is the hope that is renewed at the end of dark period in life.
