This action thriller by Michael Schock has a standardized, predictable plot with the usual types: an amateur detective (Thierry Lhermitte), a beautiful woman (Véronique Jannot) looking for her missing sister, members of a drug and prostitution cartel, and one corrupt policeman (Daniel Duval). The detective was a motorcycle racing champ -- a talent that always comes in handy but that cannot help him out when he is attacked by drug dealers. Their abuse transforms him into a crafty, determined hero with allies in unusual places and a mind turned devious enough to outsmart the evil cop.
