Damien and Leito return to District 13 on a mission to bring peace to the troubled sector that is controlled by five different gang bosses, before the city's secret services take drastic measures to solve the problem.
The film was at the subject of a controversy when writer/producer Luc Besson accused cinema chain UGC in the French media of boycotting the film by not showing it in their Parisian suburbs cinemas, and thus trying to stop its intended audience from seeing it. UGC replied that they felt their distribution for the film was up to par and that in any case it wasn't Besson's business to decide which cinemas should or should not carry the film.
What are you doing?
Capt. Damien Tomaso: Thinking.
Leïto: I don't like it when you think.
When Damien breaks a Chinese vase, the fat Chinese mobster says "this a 12th Century Ming vase" (and Damien replies that the true one has been returned to the museum). Actually, the Ming dynasty began in the 14th Century.
The final scene actually takes place 2 minutes and 15 seconds into the end credits.
