The stunts are real. When you see a guy leap between buildings or scale a wall or clamber over cars, garbage heaps, whatever, said guy is really leaping between buildings or scaling walls or clambering over cars, garbage heaps or whatever. There aren’t any wires or superheroic CGI helping him along, What you see is what you get.
Plot: Banlieue 13, two years later. The government has changed, not the rest … The wall of isolation – ever higher, ever growing, ever further – has spread around the cities ghettos and gangs that are proliferating have increased their influence. The traffic is now divided among five ethnic neighborhoods, each headed by a fearsome gang leader. More than ever determined to settle the problem, the secret services voluntarily fire to powder. Damien (Cyril Raffaelli), cop martial arts expert, and Leito (David Belle), able to squeeze in every corner of the suburbs, make new team. Their goal: to save the city from chaos. Their program: tough fighting and race for defying the laws of gravity.
Three years after the events of the original film, the authorities are attempting to return law and order to ravaged District 13. However the death of gang overlord Taha Bemamud at the end of the previous film has left a power vacuum, and total control of the area is now being fought over by five rival territorial gang lords who want to step into Taha’s position of overlord over District 13. Damien and Leito return to District 13 on a mission to bring peace to the troubled sector before the secret services of Paris take drastic measures to solve the problem.
Looks good huh!!?
