Having professional 'free runners' be the center of an action film was a good move. I highly enjoyed the real and fluid stunt work. Fast paced and nonstop action, just the way I like it.

This is way good. The action sequences are amazing and the actress is great. The story is okay. My friend was impressed with the French rap music at the end. Good times. Don't forget the man who produced this: Luc Besson. I saw it about 1 yr ago.

This film combines Luc Besson's vision of the future with parkour. Cyril Raffaelli and David Belle were awesome, as was whoever played K2. Not a great movie, but the opening fight/chase scene is one of the greatest ever captured on film.

Nonstop action on top of more action! District B 13 combines martial arts with a raw directing style and the outcome is just awesome.

"District B13" by Yojimbo

A crime riddled district of Paris is walled up and abandoned by the authorities, but when a neutron bomb is stolen by its crime boss, a lone cop is sent in to defuse it. Escape From New York meets Ong Bak in this frenetic French action flick that's very much in the tradition of Luc Besson. The whole "near future" premise is really just an excuse to make you swallow the greater implausibilites in the plot, as there's little here to mark it out as sci-fi. It's really just a series of high octane shoot outs and bone crunching fight sequences as a buddy duo join forces to reach their respective objectives; the bomb and the rescue of a resident's sister. Thankfully there's no corny love interest and the buddy partnership works quite well because of the lack of idiotic one liners and macho bull...
