Product Description

A notorious kingpin of the Albanian Mafia, Abedin Nexhep (Angelo Infanti) faces trial over the kidnapping of young women who were put to work selling their bodies on the streets of Western Europe. Laborie (Nadia Farès), a beautiful high-flying officer in the French Special Forces, is charged with escorting him to the court, and faces the monster with grim determination. Abedin has many dangerous enemies, and even more dangerous friends, who will risk everything to halt his capture. When the police convoy is ambushed en route to the courtroom, Laborie and her team are forced to seek refuge in a nearby warehouse, where they discover a gang of thieves in the critical stage of a big job. With Abedin's friends firing down on them from outside, the captives of the warehouse are united in the fierce fight for survival. Rivalries and the law are cast aside as they face the furious assault - will any one of them make it out alive?

4.0 out of 5 stars shame about the subtitles... 8 Feb 2009
so yes, this film is great fun - the other reviews have given a good account of that.

What they haven't mentioned - which is worth alerting you to - is that the subtitles on this release are v.poorly done (find a different release version if you can).

Firstly they appear actually on the picture, which might be common, but when they're bright yellow and can appear well up the screen if there's a lot of dialogue, is not acceptable. Second, they have only instituted subtitles seemingly for the deaf - you are told in brackets when a door opens, or gun shot is heard etc. All-in-all a pitifully lazy and inept/uncaring subtitle implementation...

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive French action movie 9 Jun 2005
By Hawfinch TOP 1000 REVIEWER
A very slickly produced and directed French thriller combining elements of Rio Bravo, Night of the Living Dead, Assault on Precinct 13, and James Cameron's Aliens.
A bunch of disparate characters (security guards, petty thieves, and a unit of French Special Forces troops) find themselves holed up and under siege in a high-tech warehouse. Their attackers, who wear night-vision goggles that make them look like alien insects (the wasps of the French title "Nid de Guepes"), are members of a ruthless Albanian mafia-style militia intent on recovering their captured leader who is also inside the warehouse.
What follows is a spectacular series of action set pieces that would put many Hollywood directors to shame. Importantly, though, director Florent-Emilio Siri has not forgotten the importance of character in this kind of film. A first-rate cast which includes Samy Naceri, Nadia Fares (as a Ripley-style kickass heroine) and Pascal Greggory (a veteran actor of French film and theatre), and an intelligent, pared-down script, make this one of the most surprising and impressive French films of recent years.

4.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable, frantic and slightly different 27 July 2008
By godzilla78 VINE VOICE
I have to agree with the positive comments made by the other reviewers. Its a frantic battle for survival for a rag tag bunch of petty thieves, french special forces and a few factory workers who fall under siege from a vicious Albanian criminal and his high tech forces. It's an enjoyable romp with elements of assault on precinct 13 and it's a nice change from the similar genre hollywood churns out by the dozen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Assault On Warehouse 13 28 Aug 2012
By West25
Verified Purchase
Abedin Nexhep, Godfather to the Albanian mafia is due to stand trial in European court, charged with running an extensive prostitution network. He's being escorted in an armoured vehicle by the French special forces, led by special agent Laborie. Along the way the vehicle is ambushed by Nexhep's men, but they manage to escape and seek safety in a warehouse. Already in the warehouse is a gang of armed thieves led by Nasser, they've just tied up the two security guards and begun to move the merchandise as the armoured vehicle arrives. As Nexhep's men surround the warehouse and open fire, the criminals, guards and special forces are going to have to work together if they're going to make it out alive.

The Nest is a French film that's subtitled, but that doesn't deter from the very good performances that are on show. Nadia Fares is probably the standout, I was already familiar with who she was after seeing the very good horror/thriller Storm Warning. She plays the role of Laborie, she has to be tough but shows a softer more emotional side in certain scenes. If this was an American film, it's the sort of role that Michelle Rodriguez seems to constantly play. The other actor that I knew going into the film was Samy Naceri, he played the role of Nasser and wasn't as important to the film as I thought he would be. Naceri is most famous for the 4 Taxi films and the excellent Days Of Glory, he's possibly more famous for his substance abuse, violent attacks and several spells in prison. I didn't know the other actors but felt they all did well, especially Benoît Magimel as Santino, Nasser's friend and fellow thief. I won't mention all the cast, but this is actually more of an ensemble film rather than mainly concentrating on specific characters.

This film has an almost similar plot to John Carpenter's 'Assault on precinct 13': An elite group of judicial escorts (transporting in an armoured vehicle an ultra dangerous mobster to stand trial) and a bunch of petty thieves end up in a remote hi tech factory and join forces (including the factory's security guards) to survive when an army of dangerous and ruthless mafia assassins will do anything to free their captured leader. The director conjures up desperation, hopelessness and genuine evil from his group of characters as well as successfully re-creating Carpenter's feeling of an unstoppable army out to get them.
From the start, where thieves and cops prepare their missions, to the last minute where under siege, the cops, security guards and thieves desperately and relentlessly fight to keep themselves alive, this film doesn't let go. It has it all: Intelligent script, incredible suspense, spectacular action, genuine almost unbearable tension, excellent character development, top notch actors and acting and it's beautifully filmed. It also features one of the most impressive long single shot in cinema history (yes in history!) where the camera travels above a car crash on a highway involving at least 70 cars slowly revealing the horrible carnage bit by bit to end on a close up that will send chills down your spine and prepares you for the horror to come. Although not mentioned on the site, it has an English 5.0 soundtrack, a French 5.1 soundtrack as well as English and French subtitles.
Until someone does a decent remake of 'Assault on precinct 13' this is an exciting, stylish, unmissable first rate film for action/thriller lovers way above most of the trash that has been coming from Hollywood recently. Get it you will not be disappointed!
