How far can a 22 ball travel

22 bullets - the professional's revenge

In the underworld of Marseille, Charly Mattei is a living legend. For many years he was one of the leading figures in organized crime, but he never wanted anything to do with drug trafficking. But his days as a gangster are over anyway. Some time ago Charly ceded his shares in the territory to his best childhood friend and partner Tony Zacchia.

Since then, Charly has led a peaceful life with his family in the southern French province, until one day he is attacked by a group of masked killers in Marseille. 22 bullets hit his body, but as if by a miracle Charly survived the bloody attack.

The former king of the underworld Charly Mattei (Jean Reno) seeks revenge.

The tough police officer Marie Goldman is entrusted with the case. She still has an old account with the ex-mafioso, believing that he once killed her husband. But Charly doesn't even think about giving her any clues about the assassins.

After another unsuccessful murder attempt, he fled the hospital to a safe hiding place with the help of his closest confidante. He wants to hunt down the killers on his own and find out why people are trying to kill him.

To his bitter disappointment, it soon turns out that his best friend Tony, of all people, wants to get him out of the way so that he can get into the drug business undisturbed. And Tony doesn't shy away from targeting his ex-boyfriend's family either. Even if Charly wanted to withdraw from the underworld without bloodshed, he realizes that he has to fight this last fight.
