In the climactic second part of the the Mesrine saga, Jacques Mesrine is back in France after his brazen assault on the maximum-security prison from which he daringly escaped. Once again in police custody and facing stern justice for his crimes, the "man of a thousand faces" escapes directly from the courtroom after kidnapping the judge at gunpoint. The life of Jacques Mesrine comes once and for all to a full bloody circle in a climax only fitting for Public Enemy #1.

Across Canada, the United States and Spain, through France and Algeria, Mesrine: Killer Instinct tells the story of the incredible rise of one of history's greatest gangsters. Always on the run, a renegade existence only a bullet can stop.
MESRINE: KILLER INSTINCT - the first of two parts - charts the outlaw odyssey of Jacques Mesrine (Vincent Cassel), the legendary French gangster of the 1960s and 1970s who came to be known as French Public Enemy No. 1 and The Man of a Thousand Faces. Infamous for his bravado and outrageously daring prison escapes, Mesrine carried out numerous robberies, kidnappings and murders in a criminal career that spanned continents until he was shot dead in 1979 by France's notorious anti-gang unit. Thirty years after his death, his infamy lives on.
Mesrine was helped along the way by beautiful and equally reckless Jeanne Schneider (Cecile de France), a Bonnie to match his Clyde. Mesrine made up his own epic, between romanticism and cruelty, flamboyance and tragedy. Both a thriller and a biopic, Mesrine: Killer Instinct explores the man behind the icon.
