In a future where Detroit's most dangerous criminals occupy the city's deserted brick mansions, an undercover cop joins forces with an ex-convict to defeat the notorious drug kingpin who has taken the mayor hostage.

In terms of high velocity action, this movie has it in spades.

The original was awesome and so is this.

The filmography and editing is terrific and the action evolves at a fast pace.

I honestly have no idea how any one who just wants to enjoy a great action film with some super cool stunts wouldn't love this movie.

This really has some unique sequences in it, which should be seen.

The acting is good and Paul Walker is, well he's just Paul Walker, a really cool dude who I always enjoy watching.

Again just numb out and enjoy this terrific high throttle action film.
