Plot: Paris, 2010, the government has walled in the ghettos of the city to contain crime. But things heat up when a supercop must go in and team up with a lone vigilante to fend off drug dealers and diffuse a bomb that threatens to kill millions.
Overview: Paris, 2010. The French government has walled in the most crime-ridden areas of the city in an attempt to contain crime. Now these ghettos, or barrios, are isolated from the rest of society; and inside their walls drug dealers and violent criminals have free reign to control things without regulation. Unfortunately, it’s not only criminals that are trapped inside these walls. Along with them are all the innocent poor who did nothing wrong other than being born in the wrong place at the wrong time. And one of them isn’t going to take it any longer.His name is Leito (David Belle), and he protects his building and fends off countless ne’er-do-wells using a unique, acrobatic fighting style. But things heat up when his sister is kidnapped by the local drug lord who has hijacked a military bomb and accidentally activated it, leaving only 24 hours until the entire ghetto is destroyed.
Now Leito is forced to team up with a supercop from the outside, Damein (Cyril Raffaelli), to rescue his sister and diffuse the bomb before it kills an estimated two million people–many of them innocent, law-abiding citizens. Together they use their incredible fighting and acrobatic skills to both elude and kick the asses of the army of drug-dealing foot soldiers who are hot on their trail.
For acrobatic martial arts and action in the tradition of Jackie Chan and Tony Jaa, look no further.
