Undercover cop Damien Collier is determined to bring his father's killer Tremaine to justice and every day is a battle against corruption. For Lino, every day is a fight to live an honest life.

Quick review:
Luc Besson produced this tediously felicitous remake of his thrilling 2004 action film District 13 starring the late Paul Walker as a Detroit cop who teams up with an anarchic civilian crime fighter (French parkour maestro David Belle) to take down a drug lord (RZA) who has hijacked a ticking nuclear bomb. See it if you must, but you’ll have a better, happier, more fulfilled life if you rent the original.
