(...) Intense action, heated, suspenseful rhythm, a sublime photo. (...) So many ingredients that place "Largo Winch II" among the solid blockbusters of adventures.
In this second instalment, action, intrigue, pursuit in cars, sensuality and waterfalls rise a notch.
This second episode is more convincing than the previous one. The fresh staging of Jérôme Salle enhances the production.
Jérôme Salle (b. 1971) is a French film director and screenwriter. He started by working as a press and fashion photographer, as well as an art director for advertisments. Yet he was irresistibly attracted by cinema and started a career as a screenwriter.
He co-wrote The Ideal Man directed by Xavier Gélin and Duplicity with Belgian director Harry Cleven.
He found his vocation in 2000 as he directed his first movie, a short fiction about an execution during WW1. In 2005 he directed Anthony Zimmer, a feature with Sophie Marceau and Yvan Attal. He was critically acclaimed and nominated for the Best First Movie at the Césars in 2006.
