    Has anyone seen this French movie? I've heard some good things at various sites (mainly Harry's review some time ago at AICN) and have been intrigued by it. Just wanted to get soe HTF feedback before I try ordering it. Thanks!

    There are 2 French editions. Since there's no English subtitled extras that may make the choice for you.

    If you don't need subtitles the film is available in Canada as a 2 disc.

    As for the film I thought it was derivative and a waste of my time and money.

    I snapped this up as soon as I read a review...a French take on Assault on Precinct 13...my buddy and I are huge John Carpenter fans so we popped it in once it arrived...it starts off well but then it just goes downhill...you don't really care for any of the characters and the action sequences are poorly filmed and very over the top.

    I did give it a chance and still feel it is not up to the praise it has received.

    By the way I have been trying to trade my 2-Disc French version, so if anyone is curious...

    Thanks!
