In the not too distant future, global civil unrest and the threat of terrorism has changed the world. The U.S responded by sending in Armed Forces to train and militarize state and local police city by city. Boston was first.

In the near future, the worst ghettos of Paris, France are literally walled off and among the worst is District B13. Controlled by the ruthless crime lord, Taha, a young righteous punk named Leïto is determined to bring him down. When the boss retaliates by kidnapping his sister, Lola, a rescue attempt by Leïto is destroyed by betrayal that gets him arrested and Lola kept in the clutches in Taha. Six months later, a crackerjack undercover cop named Damien is given a urgent mission: a neutron bomb has been stolen by Taha in District B13 which has an automatic timer function engaged and set to detonate in less than 24 hours. Now with time running out, Damien and Leïto must work together to find and stop the bomb, but there is far more to this crisis than any of the field players realize. Written by

The keypad on the bomb is inconsistent between views. In most close-ups it shows, top to bottom: '1 2 3 a' '4 5 6 b' '7 8 9 0', but when Damien tries to enter the last digit, the key 3 is in the bottom right corner. See more »

I'll have to watch it a few more times (and i will) before I make a proper review, but for now let me just reveal that the action was so intensely awesome that I actually forgot to breath, and found myself short of breath just watching it.
I have watched action films from the east for years, and have been continuously intrigued and impressed with their inventiveness, but without a doubt in my mind I have just sat through a film that has raised the bar for the Action Movie genre.
The action stunt work is flawless, and utterly amazing. These guys are insane, in the best possible way. And whilst they do what they do best, you just cannot take your eyes off them.
I feel so excited after this film I could be sick. No joke!
