Anyone seen this Luc Besson produced Super-Hero movie?

I was wondering if there are any reviews for this film

It sounds interesting, but I don't wanna waste my $$$ on crap.

If you liked the taxi series, you might dig this too. I myself loved it, and I also dug the soundtrack, simple, fun flick with nice stunts.

It was OK. The intro scenes were wild and inventive. The rest of the movie (story, development etc) were sorely struggling and turned a promising movie into boring garbage IMHO.

Taxi is a great series (I have 1 - 3) but wouldn't recommend Yamakasi though.

Yamakasi is a decent film (though far from being "super-man-ish"). Not Besson's best but more than decent as I said.
The only sad part is that there isn't a 16/9 with English subs in any region.

First, it isnt a superhero movie, basically a movie glorifying the crazy stunts Paris project youth were doing across the rooftops of their project houses and such. Got really popular over there and even made it over here in a series of Nike commercials. Its like movies over here in the early '80's that glorified skateboarders and BMX'ers.
