The Last Deadly Mission, also known as MR 73, is a 2008 French film noir written and directed by Olivier Marchal.


Louis Schneider is a French law enforcer who serves in the French Judiciary Police Regional Service. He is assigned to detect a serial killer and tries to live up to his superior's expectations. But then it is brought to his notice that a convict called Charles Subra will be released early for he pretends he had found God and he would now deeply regrets his former bad deeds. Schneider doesn't believe any of it. Neither does Justine, whose parents were once murdered by Subra. Justine teams up with Schneider because she knows he brought Subra to justice once before. She hopes he can do it again although he is an alcoholic.


The film title refers to a revolver made in France: Manurhin MR 73


The film received mixed reviews but Daniel Auteuil's performance was rather unequivocally approved.[1]
