Review: District 13:Ultimatum

Two years have passed since elite police officer Damien Tomasso (Cyril Raffaelli) teamed up with reformed vigilante Leito (parkour originator David Belle) to save the notorious District 13, a racially charged ghetto populated by violent drug dealing gangs and vicious killers. Despite government promises to maintain order, the state of the district has deteriorated, and a group of corrupt cops and elected officials are conspiring to cause civil unrest in D13. Now Damian and Leito must join forces again, and use their mastery of martial arts and their unique physical skills to bring peace to the neighborhood by any means necessary

District B13 is a gritty, high-flying, no-holds-barred thrill ride. The acrobatic Cyril Raffaelli and David Belle are back with their brand of Parkour ass-kicking to try to save the roughest district of Paris. Cop and criminal, working together, they take on a government that is one button-press away from blowing up their home.The action is a high energy combination of leaps, flips, fights, and car stunts. Never boring, always ridiculous, and constantly fun. One of the most intense action movies I have seen in a while, with a decent story line but the parkour martial arts really makes up for it and the dynamic range of characters.
