  • To be honest, I didn’t expect much from this movie, but I was wrong. “Banlieue 13” was awesome! The fight scenes are exciting and very well done. There’s only one problem: the movie stops too early. You get plenty of action, but it just seems too short. A great action film with tremendous stunts and some political content!
