Well-oiled thriller is quite suspenseful, even though the plot is extremely far-fetched, and there are a few chases too many.

Flawed, silly, and probably forgettable- but hey if you liked the Net and Enemy of the State - this is worth watching then. I liked it.

I didn't know that this film was in French when I bought it. Anyway it gave me a headache reading the subtitles and trying to follow the 'running around' at the same time ! And trying to figure out the plot ? Cantona was ok but lacked sparkle. It started off well, but became too unbelievable. Give it a miss.

It exaggerates and it doesn't work.

It was thrilling and exciting most of the time, but at the end it turned out that the plot is pretty lame...:(

Eric Cantona may not have the panache in front of a camera as he does on a football pitch, but Switch is still an enjoyable - if rather silly - Franco-Canadian thriller. Anyone want to swap homes for the summer? Non?

Petit suspense français avec l'actrice québécoise Karine Vanasse. Excellente idée de départ concernant les vols d'identités, bon ton et rythme d'action! Quelques paresses au niveau du développement. Un bon petit thriller qui mets bien en valeur Paris!

Too much of vagueness going on in this film. The plot seemed weak and although there were many actions in this film, they weren't as thrilling. And some unneeded nude scenes made it much worse!

For quarter of an hour this is like a delicate lady-film then Eric Cantona turns up and it spirals into a mad, dark little thriller with that lovely French obsession of gratuitous breast shots.

In French with subtitles but it doesn't say that in the synopsis. It sounded good but I wouldn't have got it if I'd known it was a foreign movie!

Preposterous French-Canadian thriller about a twentysomething her swaps her Montreal apartment for one in Paris. Once there she is framed for murder and finds her identity has been switched with the real killer. Plotholes are as wide as the Seine, for example why not ask the police to contact your family to confirm your identity. This is getting some hype due to Eric Cantona's portrayal of a detective. His acting certainly isn't bad for a footballer but he maintains a look of constipation throughout. Even if Man Utd fans could actually read subtitles I wouldn't recommend they watch this.

Dippy French Canadian fashion designer signs up for house swap website & ends up trading with a Paris murderer. Gets framed for murders she didn't commit. Chased all over town by Eric Cantona's sardonic cop character & suddenly has the ability to kick ass, ride motorbikes & shoot guns.

Very unbelievable at times & has a definite 80's feel but I stuck it out 'til the end!

A nonstop action thriller that would've been great if made 20 years ago...

Remarkably unremarkable. Cantona didn't even ninja kick anyone in the face.

Si vous avez la pratique des romans de Jean-Christophe Grangé, vous devriez très rapidement retrouver vos repères avec ce "Switch" dont il signe le scénario. Le sentiment de familiarité provient moins de la résolution du mystère (Grangé écrit peut-être des romans de gare mais ce sont de très bons romans de gare) que de cette abondance de péripéties érigées au rang de gimmick dont il ne semble aujourd'hui plus pouvoir se passer (la femme forte et fragile en même temps, les quartiers immigrés perçus comme des havres où il fait bon disparaître, l'usurpation d'identité, la loi du sang, etc...). Scénaristiquement plutôt intéressant et nerveux pour une production française, ce thriller policier "à l'américaine" carré et sans fioritures témoigne cependant d'un fort désintérêt du réalisateur quant à la mise en place de cette atmosphère sombre et menaçante, à la lisière du Fantastique, que les autres films estampillés Grangé (pourtant tous très éloignés du chef d'uvre, sans exceptions), maîtrisaient plutôt bien, ainsi que de ce fichu rendu téléfilmesque que les films français portés sur l'action d'aujourd'hui arrivent pourtant le plus souvent à esquiver.
