Two years after the events depicted in DISTRICT 13 and once again set in the eponymous, lawless zone, DISTRICT 13 ? ULTIMATUM finds those living within the walled, feral inner cities facing an even more terrifying existence than before. The walls have since become higher and the contained streets now under the rule of sinister and very influential gangs. The land itself has become divided into five ethnic neighbourhoods, each controlled by a boss thriving on the business of illegal trade. In a bid to control the turf and keep the inhabitants in order, the secret service once again dispatches Damien and Leito. But can just two men save the district from the chaos and destructions that now reigns?

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.Read more ›
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.
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.

disappointing, the cover & trailer are far more exciting than the film actually is.Published 8 months ago by MS
A tremendous sequel with great fight sequences and nifty stunt player action. Subtitles did not distract from the storyline or screen content. A really good movie.Published 15 months ago by Henry Richard Howell
