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

Despite common misunderstandings, the film is set in 2013 not 2010. The opening script on screen say that the sectioning off of District 13 was actioned in 2010 and as the camera surveys the wall you see markings that say "completed Oct 2010" in French. Then it says "Three years later" as the main film starts, making it 2013 and the sequel is 2016. See more »
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 just saw an advanced screening of this in l.a. for this organization genart. This movie from the very beginning is very captivating with the smooth shots that flow and literally "jump" with the characters is amazing. it keeps you in the movie the whole time and the action scenes are the most unique i've seen since matrix, but a whole lot cooler. the movie is in french and has subtitles but actually adds to the movies authenticity and cool factor. its great hearing the actors speak in their native languages and it ends up making you want to learn french. the two leads are quite the french hotties and martial arts masters. its a simple enough plot with some twists to it. and less than 90 minutes its well worth your money. i plan on owning this once its out on DVD and definitely am waiting to see it again in theatres when it does come out. i'm not an action movie buff at all but this movie definitely kept my attention with the quick wit and humor from the characters and the quick but focused action. it was really mindboggling stunts that i kept saying ohmigod to. so definitely well worth a watch and recommendation to your friends.
