O que se diz lá fora sobre MESRINE: KILLER INSTINCT, de Jean-François Richet:
«The acting is macho understatement. Mesrine is a character who might have been played years ago by Gerard Depardieu, who appears here as Guido, a bullet-headed impresario of larceny.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«It makes for continuously riveting, visceral entertainment that evokes a Gallic SCARFACE without the drugs.»
Stephen Holden, The New York Times.
«Part One, at least, is a French BONNIE AND CLYDE.»
Kirk Honeycutt, The Hollywood Reporter.
«The events may be accurate, but MESRINE is so episodic that it's slightly maddening to watch.»
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.
«KILLER INSTINCT is generally fast-paced but the need to cram about 15 years of Mesrine's life into less than two hours results in uneven patches.»
James Berardinelli, ReelViews.
