UNDERCOVER AND NEVER OUTGUNNED.
Detroit, 2018; undercover cop Damien Collier (Paul Walker) and ex-con Lino (David Belle) are forced to team up in order to stop a criminal who’s hiding in a part of the city that’s been sealed off with a huge wall. A remake of the French action thriller District 13 (2004) that has one of the original stars, parkour champ Belle, returning in his original role. The story has been moved from Paris, but it’s just as high concept – you get plenty of action, car chases, shootouts and scantily clad dames. Very silly, but always on the move. Neither heroes nor villains are much fun though.
