Great poster, terrible movie (I assume)

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Pierre Morel's From Paris With Love sucks.

With John Travolta, it's all about the hair (or lack thereof, in this case). If Travolta's hair sucks in a movie, so will the movie. Remember Swordfish? I don't. (I actually didn't see it.) Travolta is a ridiculous kind of bald in this movie, and the movie, I've heard, is terrible. And his goatee isn't helping.

But that doesn't mean I can't spare a few words for this poster. Great concept, marvelous simplicity. Plus, I love its spartan refusal to show pictures of the stars.

With Travolta's bald pate, that can only be a good thing.
