When people think of Paris, they think of things like romance, beauty, and art. But the new movie From Paris With Love turns the City of Love into a city of intense shoot-outs and crazy fight scenes.

In the film, John Travolta plays an American spy trying to stop a terrorist attack on Paris. His methods are unconventional and cause almost as much trouble as the criminals he is trying to stop. Find out why Ella and Dale are excited to see From Paris With Love.

Ella:  So have you seen From Paris With Love yet?

Dale:  Actually, I’m planning to.

Ella:  John Travolta’s in it. I haven’t seen him in a movie in a long time.

Dale:  I know, I know, and that’s the reason why I plan to do it. Lately he’s been taking these roles of the mean tough guy, so I think that it’s…his roles are changing, so I’m excited to see how he’s transformed.

Ella:  Yeah. Looks like it’s a kind of a violent movie. Looks like there’s shooting sprees and crazy things going on.

Dale:  The role he’s supposed to play is more of a loose cannon, where everybody goes crazy and he’s just uncontrollable, like trigger-happy type of guy. I’m actually really excited to see it, ‘cause I really want to see how he’s become.

Ella:  Yeah. It’s not the type of character you usually imagine John Travolta in. He’s more light-hearted, like Phenomenon kind of stuff. And this is just the complete opposite.

Dale:  Yeah, he’s been changing so much. And that’s why I’m so…I admire the way he acts because he’s been so versatile.

Dale is looking forward to seeing From Paris With Love because he wants to see John Travolta play a tough guy. In the past, Travolta has played more good-guy roles, but in recent years, he’s been taking on darker characters. Dale admires Travolta for his versatility as an actor.

Ella thinks the movie looks violent. Travolta plays an American spy who is a bit of a loose cannon. He uses extreme methods to capture the criminals he is chasing.

Have you ever been to Paris? What does the city mean to you? What’s your favorite role John Travolta has played?
