Movie Info

Marseille's north suburbs hold the record of France's highest crime rate. Greg, Yass and Antoine's police brigade faces strong pressure from their bosses to improve their arrest and drug seizure stats. In this high-risk environment, where the law of the jungle reigns, it can often be hard to say who's the hunter and who's the prey. When assigned a high-profile operation, the team engages in a mission where moral and professional boundaries are pushed to their breaking point.


Critic Reviews for The Stronghold (Bac nord)

All Critics (6)

An ambitious but uneven policier that wants to be both knockabout buddy movie and action-packed drama with serious, contemporary themes

October 5, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

For all its weaknesses and occasional lapses into cliché, The Stronghold should still get you through a couple of hours, entertained and mostly engrossed.

The Stronghold is an immersive, gripping drama that's much more than just the suspenseful, brilliantly staged action set piece that occurs smack-dab at the movie's halfway point.

September 22, 2021 | Full Review…

In this slickly-produced and strongly-acted thriller, lots of buildup leads to nowhere.

September 21, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

For a cops-and-drug-dealers thriller, it can be frustrating.

September 18, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

[The Stronghold] tries to say something but doesn't have the tools or the right political messaging to deliver it clearly.
