    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0414852/

    Good film, downloaded off Filelist last night so I imagine it is available on other torrent networks as well.

    It's French so if you can't read or you're American then probably best to wait for the sub-par Hollywood remake in a few years time. For those who brave it I trust you'll not be disappointed. I read a review that describes it well; said it was like a "bastard child of Escape From New York and La Haine" (if you haven't seen La Haine shoot yourself in the face now).

    To be honest it borrows more heavily from Escape than La Haine, but it is a great action movie and a good alternative to the formulaic Hollywood action films that plague the cinema atm.



    PLOT

    Paris‚ 2013. Damien is the elite of the police force. Officer of a special unit of intervention‚ expert in martial arts‚ it became Master in the art of the infiltration and can in the long term carry out his operations by fast‚ precise actions and nevertheless muscular. And it is well the most extreme mission of its career which has been just entrusted to him: a weapon of massive destruction was concealed by most powerful gang of the suburbs. Damien is charged to infiltrate in the sector to defuse the bomb or to recover it.

    the plot sounds exactly like the sort of thing i'll deliberately try to avoid watching, but La Haine has been mentioned three times in this thread so i will

    No you don't.

    Cheese me boyo, I thought you were a man of good taste.
    You should all stay clear of anything which bears the seal of Luc Besson. That guy has been directing or producing utter shite since "Le grand bleu".
