Languages French//In the futuristic French martial arts flick Banlieue 13, a Parisian suburb’s crime rate is so astronomical that the government just considers it a write-off ? the area has been walled off, the police are withdrawing and the citizens remaining inside are left to fend for themselves.
One particular Borough 13 resident named Leito (David Belle) has decided to wage a one-man war on local druglord Taha (Bibi Naceri, brother of Taxi driver Sami Naceri), who is a bit perturbed at the interruption of his business. With a small army of heavily armed street goons on his trail, Leito makes his escape by scrambling through halls and across rooftops. But Taha kidnaps his feisty (and incredibly sexy) sister for retribution, and Leito ends up in le bastille.
Meanwhile, chopsockey supercop Damien (Cyril Raffaelli) is recruited to retrieve a stolen nuclear weapon from Taha’s headquarters, and he only has 24 hours before the device turns Borough 13 into a smoking crater. Damien reluctantly teams with prisoner Leito, and the mismatched duo make their way to Taha’s stronghold.
