22 bullets (2010) - richard bell

After being ambushed and shot with 22 bullets (hence the title, although it is known as L'immortel in France), Charly Mattei, a retired gangster, seeks revenge on those who did it.  Although Charly  (played by a moody yet magnificent Jean Reno) tries to live by some kind of moral code, and values his friendships, he soon starts kicking some gangster asses in a big way.  I enjoyed the jerky action sequences, but the FPO couldn't stand some of the suspense laden parts, as it got too much for her, especially the barbed wire bit.  So, all in all, it was a success in our household.
