Colt 45 is a 2014 French-Belgian action crime drama directed by Fabrice Du Welz. Armorer and shooting instructor at the National Police, Vincent Milès (Ymanol Perset), is an expert in combat shooting. At only 25 years of age, Vincent has skills which are envied by police elites around the world, but he is aloof from his colleagues and stubbornly refuses to take up an invitation to join an elite police unit. His fate changes when he meets Milo Cardena (Joey Starr), a corrupt cop who takes him on an uncontrollable spiral of violence. Vincent is placed into the center of a series of armed robberies, murders, and a fierce war between Major Christian Chavez (Gérard Lanvin) - commander of the BRB and his mentor, Major Luc Denard (Simon Abkarian) - commander of the BRI. Trapped in a powder keg, Vincent will have no choice but to embrace his dark side to survive. The film also stars Alice Taglioni, Philippe Nahon, and Jo Prestia.
