Mesrine: Killer Instinct new international trailer online
Mesrine: Killer Instinct has a new trailer online and while it looks similar to the previous trailer for the film, it has some new scenes to watch, and no spoilers what so ever, something very unusual for trailers these days.
The film is currently running under multiple titles, L'instinct de mort, Mesrine: Part 1 - Death Instinct, Mesrine: L'instinct de mort, and Mesrine: Killer Instinct, something which I know is going to help the marketing of the film like a brick, but please bear them all in mind and don't forget to see this film, it's a good one.
The film is the first part of a two which follows the life of the infamous Jacques Mesrine, a French criminal who rose to the ranks of Public Enemy Number 1 and committed crimes in both Quebec and France.
The first film, Mesrine: Death/Killer Instinct, follows him up until he gains that reputation as Public Enemy Number 1, and then the second film, Mesrine: Public Enemy No. 1, shows his life after that point. By far the first film is the stronger, but then I don't think that you can watch either in isolation, really this should be a three hour film with an hour cut out of the second half.
Still, it's a great film and features a superb performance from Vincent Cassel. What I'm not sure about is the use of the music in the trailer. Although it's the original track and not just the use of the riff, it still gives it a little of the Ritchie geezer gangster film. Believe me, it's not.
