french flicks

Taxi 3 is a French film directed by Gérard Krawczyk. It is a sequel to Taxi written by Luc Besson and directed by Gérard Pirès in 1998 and to Taxi 2 directed by Gérard Krawczyk in 2000.

A gang of thieves calling themselves the Santa Claus Gang are wreaking havoc, and the police are unable to keep up. Police Captain Gilbert (played by Bernard Farcy) is distracted by a Chinese reporter (Bai Ling) writing a story on his squad, detective Emilien's wife, Petra, has just announced that she's pregnant, and taxi driver Daniel (Samy Naceri) is in the midst of a relationship crisis. After a string of mistakes in which the thieves outsmart the police time and time again with a reporter there to record it all, Daniel and his super-taxi pitch in.

Commisar Giber (Bernard Farcy) has you in splits and Daniel (Samy Naceri) is his usual self with his love for cars and speed, with more gadgets in his taxi this time around. Marion Cotillard as Lilly is impressive. Sylvester Stallone makes a cameo at the beginning of the movie as a taxi passenger.

Tres bien Samy Naceri and Frédéric Diefenthal!

Check out a short sequence!
