Detroit has fallen to crime, and in an effort to contain it, authorities have sealed up the inner city with a massive wall. Once you're inside, you never get out. Lino (David Belle) is an ex-con who's trying to make the best of life in this urban penitentiary when his girlfriend is abducted by ruthless drug lord Tremaine (RZA). 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. Despite their differences, Lino and Collier are the only men capable of entering the city, and defeating Tremaine's gang.

Trivia

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. And the next time he references Bob Marley's no woman no cry lyrics when he's about to set off the bomb saying "in this great future you can't forget your past" which is a lyric from the song.

Better watch the ORIGINAL!!!
23 June 2014 | by treste91See all my reviews

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...

ENJOY!
