Babylon AD 2008 (PG-13)

The French actually do know how to produce sci fi/action, although this Diesel pic is probably no more than a time filler. Mercenary Thoorop takes a job escorting a woman (Thierry) from a post-apocalyptic Russia to Germany. Only he doesn't realize that she's incubating an organism a cult plans to turn into a genetically-modified Messiah. Yikes. Not yet reviewed. ?m/C FR Vin Diesel, Melanie Thierry, Gerard Depardieu, Charlotte Rampling, Mark Strong, Lambert Wilson; D: Mathieu Kassovitz; W: Mathieu Kassovitz, Eric Besnard; C: Thierry Arbogast; M: Atli Orvarsson
