James Reece (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is a personal assistant of US Ambassador in France and enjoys life in Paris with his gorgeous French girlfriend, but his real passion is his side job as a low-level operative for the CIA.
All James wants is to become a bona fide agent and see some real action. So when he’s offered his first senior-level assignment, he can’t believe his luck until he meets his new partner, special agent Charlie Wax (John Travolta), a trigger-happy, wisecracking, loose cannon who’s been sent to Paris to stop a terrorist attack.
Wax leads James on a white-knuckle shooting spree through the Parisian underworld that has James praying for his desk job. But when James discovers he is a target of the same crime ring they are trying to bust, he realises there is no turning back and that Wax himself might be his only hope.
