Set in the future, the planet is an effective war zone.
Kassovitz promises some really exciting action scenes in the movie. Diesel is quite excited when he talks about his action scenes in the movie. He said, "I had so much fun flying through the air on a snowmobile. It is amazingly cool and so much fun. There is a group of guys we worked with, called The Slednecks, (a snowmobile stunt team) and you see them doing jumps off mountains in Alaska. They are amazing. The snowmobile scene was my favorite in the movie." Yeoh too can’t stop talking about the amazing work the all the stunt directors have done in Babylon A.D. "Each stunt team leader has his own style and commitment, and as someone who’s always appreciated the various martial art forms, I had a great time working with them," she quipped.
The film has been well received by audiences and critics worldwide and has done successful business in all the parts of the world where it has been released already. They are quite positive that the thrilling story line and the breath taking stunts will attract huge crowds to the screens.
