Paris-Express (COURSIER) was produced by EUROPACORP, Luc Besson‘s production studio, producers of the worldwide hits TAXI, TAKEN and the TRANSPORTER franchise. Released in France in 2010, it is now available internationally in DVD and Blu-Ray. It has also been a theatrical success in more than 16 foreign countries, including China – where it reached N°6 at the box-office in June 2011, just behind “Kung-Fu Panda 2”.

Well paced, the film rush at 65mph. We do not get bored on the way. Michaël Youn, well supervised by Hervé Renoh, proves to be amazing.

Le Figaroscope

But COURSIER does not relies only on his performance. In the role of his girlfriend, Geraldine Nakache has more than one string to her bow well bent. Didier Flamand plays Sam's father with finesse. As for Jimmy Jean-Louis, he is perfect, americanized, dressed in the smart suit of the bad guy. A clever comedy, fast and unpretentious. After all, it's not so common ...

Le Figaro

Everything makes you want to see Youn in a role free of wacky obligations ...

Libération

An explosive action comedy! Even the exuberant Michaël Youn does not get over it (...) Throughout the film, actions, waterfalls, adventure follow one another, for a good dose of humor and lots of twists ...

Le Progrès

An hectic and crazy comedy tasting the pure cinema entertainment dear to the public, in the style of Philippe De Broca or Gérard Oury.

L'Officiel

With a fine casting and situations playing honestly about everyday life in front of an immoderate mafia, COURSIER holds its sympathetic comical ambitions.

Excessif

``Une comédie d'action au rythme trépidant!``

Le Monde des Ados

Youn displays a very welcome surprising sobriety in this spirited comedy that also owes a lot to his merrily wacky supporting cast.

Guidetele.com

COURSIER drives us skilfully from spectacular pursuits to comic situations (...) Michaël Youn finds one of its most convincing roles with this comedy of action led foot to the floor in the streets of Paris.
