Pretty Awesome 11 Sept. 2011
By HeavyMetalSushi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
I can't say that I have seen too many French films before, spare the ever so awesome Brotherhood of the Wolf, but after that and the District 13 films, France has definitely made it's mark in American culture with such bad@$$ films. Yes, the film quality isn't necessarily quite up to pace with American movies, but it makes up for it with some pretty decent acting and some awesome stunts. Cyril Raffaelli (Live Free or Die Hard, Kiss of the Dragon, Hitman), busts out some outstanding martial arts, and David Belle pulls some spectacular stunts using the art of Parkour...awesome athletic ability. The duo does a great job together in these films. If you're an action/martial arts fan, I highly recommend checking these movies out. My only main criticism on these movies is that the dubbing kinda sucks on it, but then again, such is the case with a lot of dubbed movies. I would recommend watching these in the native tongue and reading subtitles, but however way you prefer to do it, just watch these movies! They are worthwhile action films!

Super Movie 25 Nov. 2012

These are two movies where I actually loved part 1 and part 2. Usually the second movie sucks, but not this one.
Instant Classics.. 14 Sept. 2012
By M. Mrtz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
This movies are extremelly fun and entertaining to watch. I like a lot the
parkour action scenes and the fighting stunts. This is what action movies should be
like, not with some fancy classical music score in the background that distracts you from
the action ("Mm.. I wonder if it's a violin or a clarinet in the background, bom bom bom BOM!!
shazzz!! Oh crap, I missed the action just for thinking about that!!! -all the time-"), or the
usual machine made cloned action script that we see all the time in movies,
or with fancy CGI-Green/Blue Screen, that once again with the movie score, distracts you from
the action on the screen ("That DEFINITELY looks like CGI, and that definitely looks like the
actor(s) used a wire(s)"), or when you are looking at a cool fight scence and the cameras shift back and
forth quickly between angles, thus not allowing you to appreciate the fight scene as a whole,
as it is pretty common today in most Hollywood made movies.

I would highly recommend this 2 movies to anyone who likes FUN action
and fighting movies without much fancy stuff to them than a good fun plot and cool fighting/action scenes
with awesome real stunts.

I would also recommend Ong-Bak 1 & 2, The Protector (With Tony Jaa), since this movie reminds me a lot
of them. I first found this movies on the web in french,
I had to get the Blu-ray with the english dub since I'm not very fluent in french yet,
the dub is worth it if you don't speak french.

The only thing I didn't like was that part 2 seemed a little "short", and the lenguage was a little stupid
and senselessly obscene on the first part, other than that this are instant classics that anyone who
likes FUN action movies should own.

Can't go wrong buying both in HD 10 Jun. 2010
By Nickhop_14 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
District B13 (Banlieue 13) is your standard low budget action flick, lots of action sequences and fight scene with a weak plot about a ghetto district in Paris where the gangs are so bad, that the French gov't built a wall around it. Now in 2010, with no hope of bringing peace to the district, the French gov't is going to blow up the district with a bomb. Our two heroes fight their way to the bomb only to fight over whether the bomb is going to blow up or deactivate when the time reaches zero. The 2 heroes bring the bomb to the presidents office and use it to persuade him to open up district 13 and tear down the wall.

District 13: Ulimatum (Banlieue 13: Ultimatum) is the sequel, with a slightly higher budget, better camera work and a deeper plot. Surprise, nothing has changed, the wall is still up and gangs still control district 13. Now in 2013, big surprize 2012 didn't happen, the French gov't has become corrupted and is sparking a war between the gangs and police to convince the president to blow up district 13. The Department of Internal State Security is taking care of anyone that will get in the way of their plot including our 2 heroes. Leito breaks Damien out of jail and the two snoop around in police headquarters and find out what's what. Paris is about to erupt in riots, and the president is about to blow up district 13. So our 2 heroes and the 5 gang lords unite to break into the control room where the president is about blow up district 13 and expose DISS' plot to the president. After stopping the president from blowing up the district *spoiler* the 5 gang leaders and leito agree it's best just to rebuild and the president blows up the district anyway. *spoilers*

As you can see from my plot summaries the sequel has more plot, which does mean less action but makes it a more well rounded movie. I perfer the French audio as the English audio is just a word for word translation without much thought toward lip syncing and can get annoying.

Bottom line: If you just want a flick like Mortal Kombat just go with District B13. If you like plot more than action get District 13: Ultimatum. If both sound good, get this.
