Reviews

French action sequel written and produced by Luc Besson. The death of gang overlord Taha Bemamud (Bibi Naceri) at the end of the first film has left a power vacuum, and a battle for total control of the area is now raging between five rival territorial gang lords, all of whom want to step into Taha's position. David Belle and Cyril Raffaelli reprise their roles as Leito and Damien, who return to the ravaged District 13 on a mission to bring peace to the sector before the Parisian secret services take drastic measures to solve the problem.

A sequel to 2004's "District 13 B".

As with the original, this has some amazing, almost balletic stunts
clearly done by the actors themselves, who are in this case two of the
originators and developers of the sport called parkour, which involves
scrambling and leaping around the urban landscape, jumping up and over
cars, out of 2nd floor windows, across rooftops.

In this age of CGI and wire assisted stunts, it's wonderful to watch
real human beings doing amazing, acrobatic things.

I also liked that the film had an interesting element of social satire
which made it smarter and more political than most of the action
blockbusters we get from Hollywood.

That said, sadly it did eventually burn out for me, on both the action
and the plot front. For the first half I thought this would end up one
of my all time favorite action pics. But the story logic gets stretched
further and further, and by the end the clever political set up turns a
bit silly, while some of the action starts to feel a bit repetitive.
Still, I'm glad I saw, and enjoyed it. I just doubt it's a film I'd
buy, or return to again.

BTW: The blu-ray seems to default to the English dubbed version. Big
mistake. Watch this in the original French with subtitles. The
performances are much better.

Not the worst sequal I've seen. There's a lot more plot and less action than the first movie, it's still breathtaking what those guys get up to though.
But, the English dub!? Did they just use some English speaking mates and offer them a tenner? It's really poor all round. Your probably better listening to the French and reading subtitles than the dodgy dub. It sounds like all the voices were performed by 4 college students.

I'm a firm believer that you should not go watching sequels before you have seen the first movie, sadly this was not an option available to me when I watched District 13: Ultimatum (Banlieue 13 - Ultimatum). Luckily for me the movie was so cleverly pieced together that if you had not caught the first its not going to be an issue, no catching up on story, no hidden riddles; Ultimatum sits happily as a stand alone movie.

D13: Ultimatum mixes the action movie with the wonder of Parkour, creating an enticing visual spectacle that continuously finds you asking, "How the hell did they do that?" The fight scenes and stunts are quite simply some of the best I have seen, working against an alien Parisian background, the film takes what could be viewed as a potentially normal looking action movie to a whole different level. The action is incredibly well choreographed whether jumping from roof to roof, to fighting with an almost priceless Van Gogh painting which turns from being unpleasant looking work of art to the ultimate weapon.

Story wise it's simplistic story telling, which to someone who does not speak French is possibly not a bad thing. This is not a criticism of the movie but plain straightforward good sense. Thrillers, comedies, and horror movies all work very well in another language with onscreen subtitles, but an action movie does not always have the same effect; lines are often spouted out in quick succession in action movies not always allowing you to enjoy the visual spectacle unfolding on screen. D13 allows you to enjoy the action without bogging you down with unnecessary dialogue.

The boys are back in a shameless recreation of a far superior original but who cares, they seem to be having fun! The stunts and sets are a little bit bigger this time. The plot is thinner than posh spice and the ending is a steaming pile of nonsense but I don't give a flying tomato because this is pulled off with such bare faced cheek that I can't help but like it!

District 13 was a Brilliant French action movie, and the long awaited sequel D13: ULTIMATUM is just as awesome!! Loads of mega cool over the top stunts and fighting! Cool mean and nasty characters fighting it out with the police! If you're an action junkie then it's a must, must own!

I'm glad I read all the bad reviews of this film before seeing it, as I had very low expectations and was consequently pleasantly surprised. Like others, I loved the original and this is certainly not as good a film as that. However it looks fantastic - the camera work and the stunts are wicked. It certainly has a rather cheesier plot, and bits of it get pretty contrived, but that's in comparison to the original. If you watched this one first, I reckon you'd have a hard time not enjoying it. Of course it's not a highbrow arthouse movie, but the two leads are on fine form again and if you accept it as merely an entertaining and diverting couple of hours' fun, you won't be disappointed. High octane fun with some spectacular moments.

I am dead chuffed with this film, heard so much about it with it being David Belle n all. Amazing film, would certainly recommend this to anyone who practices the art of movement (Parkour/Freerunning) :)
