Damien and Leito return to District 13 on a mission to bring peace to the troubled sector that is controlled by five different gang bosses, before the city's secret services take drastic measures to solve the problem.

Meanwhile, as undercover cop Damien Collier (Paul Walker) contends with deep-rooted corruption within the police department, Tremaine imprisons the mayor, and threatens to detonate a powerful weapon unless he's paid millions in ransom.

RZA references Bob Marley lyrics twice in the movie. First he says "now I have to go and shoot a Sheriff and a Deputy" referring to Bob Marley's song I shot the sheriff..but I didn't shoot no deputy.

This movie is a bad REMAKE of the original french production: "Banlieue 13" ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0414852/ )...
And believe when I say that it's not worth your time! The first movie has better acting and story! That is obvious by comparing the ratings of both monies... And to top that of, in the second movie they changed some details that you know "made sense"!!!
All in all, i recommend to anyone to watch the first movie! And i guarantee that you enjoy 84 minutes packed with action, free running, shooting and fighting...
