Last night, we watched the Hollywood version of Luc Besson’s Taxi starring Queen Latifah and Jimmy Fallon.
The story follows along the lines of the first French movie with some changes here and there. Queen Latifah plays the role of the speed-crazed taxi driver and Jimmy Fallon plays the dumb cop who doesn’t know how to drive.
The movie turned out pretty ok. I like Queen Latifah’s comedy roles and Jimmy Fallon does a not-bad job. The movie has some good laughs in it. Anyway I still think the original French version is a lot better, more fun and more enjoyable.
I guess it’s always like that though. Originals are always better than the remakes.
My score for this movie would be: 6.5/10.
