Synopsis


District B13
A nuclear weapon has been stolen by the most powerful gang in Paris' treacherous, walled-in ghetto, and it's up to a determined cop and a vigilante criminal in search of his sister to infiltrate the sector, save the girl, and get the bomb out of the bad guys' hands in an action-packed tale produced by Luc Besson and directed by cinematographer Pierre Morel. The year is 2010, and a massive wall has been erected to keep the violence of the Paris ghetto confined to District B13. Within these walls, gangs rules the streets and law enforcement is powerless. This time the gangs have gone too far, though, and when the authorities realize that a nuclear weapon has been smuggled into the district, specially trained policeman and martial artist Damien is assigned the task of retrieving the weapon of mass destruction before Paris goes up in flames. He's not going to be able to do it on his own, though, and when Damien learns that breakaway bad guy Leïto's sister has been abducted by the very same gang, the pair soon forges a tentative partnership that merges the power of law enforcement with the anything-goes attitude of the criminal element. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Parkour excitement

    David Belle has been a pro in parkour for ages and has even spawned a couple odds and ends type of parkour flicks, but none put an exclamation point on it till this one! As a huge action fan, the human physical extremeties have always been an Asian export, but no more! This title changed my whole perspective. Parkour by definition is the French originated sport of freestyle running by where one uses the environment creatively. The basis of it is to achieve maximum movement flow without thinking. I wont go into the nice story but the situation forces a street parkour talent of David with a strict disciplined super cop. Two different trains of thought, two different styles of fighting with one goal. HD worthy all the way!

    I've heard about this movie for sometime, but passed it over, because so many action movies have been a mixed bag lately. Am I glad I picked this one up!! It started as an adrenaline rush that found itself constantly growing throughout--with martial arts, guns and more martial arts! Cyril Raffaelli and David Belle form a chemistry that is unrivaled, destroying enemies left and right, while trying to save the war-torn ghetto District B13 from extinction.

    Great Action Movie

    A very good action movie, if you don't mind the dubbed english. Obviously a french movie. The dubbed soundtrack is better then subtitles anyway. Not really looking for stunning lines anyway. Just enjoy the action and fighting. Excellent stunt work as well. Blu-ray extras aren't even dubbed but are still informative. Looking forward to the sequel.

    I thought that this movie was pretty good no parts where it was dull at all. Lost of good action scenes. The only part that was not really that great was that it was dubbed over from French to English but other then that the movie was great.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I first saw this movie on cable. After seeing it, I purchased it. It's filled with action. Great movie even if you're not that into subtitles. Girls will like it as well!
