For months, Paris police is trying to solve a gang of violent armed robberies. Vrinks and Denis are both top police officers who are competing to be the next chief. The race is on, Vrinks takes the risk and relies on a tip-off of a convic, though solves the case but got him into serious trouble. Denis disregards the protocol and results in deaths of fellow officers during gun fight. Denis in defending himself, pushes Vrinks deep into trouble and gets thrown in jail. Denis becomes the new chief...

My review:
Good actors but with such an interesting plot, I expect the movie to be more intense. I didn't find the movie was capturing my attention.
