It is bad copy

It is bad copy of Banlieue 13 , bad acting from Paul Walker.there is no feeling at all.

No compression between acting of Cyril Raffaelli and Walker.

Also David Belle in this movie was not like his grate role Banlieue 13

unfortunate it is disappointed.

A quite watchable remake, although it's a far cry from the original

This English-language remake of the excellent DISTRICT 13 was once again made by the French, albeit shot in Canada this time around. It's pretty much a scene-for-scene remake of the original, although inevitably not as good for reasons which we shall come to. It's only as the running time goes on that crucial differences to the original come to light and unfortunately they're not improvements.

First, let's get the good stuff listed. This is a short, snappy, action thriller, with plenty of shoot-outs and fight scenes to recommend it. The framing is often good and there's a fine sense of setting in the grubby, run-down locations. One of the highlights is the return of David Belle, playing the same character as he did in the original; it's just an annoyance that they decided to dub him rather than have him use his French accented English.

Paul Walker is an odd but obvious choice for Cyril Raffaelli's character in the original, but he's no martial artist so the martial arts fights have been replaced by fist fights and a greater emphasis on car chases. Catalina Denis and Ayisha Issa are the requisite scantily-clad women who hang around to show off their bodies and little more is required of them than that.

The problems are slight at first but begin to mount up as the narrative progresses. First off, the editing is horrendous. The early Parkour scenes are ruined by the refusal to shoot the stunts in single, fluid takes; there's always a dodgy edit halfway through, cutting to a different angle and lessening the impact. Sometimes one of Belle's jumps has three or four edits in it which ruins the whole flow of the thing. BRICK MANSIONS does a lot right, but it gets this crucial editing oh so wrong. I remember in the old days of Jackie Chan's 1980s movies that they sometimes wanted to capture a stunt from different angles, so they would just replay it, which was a much better way of doing it.

The second problem is RZA, playing the drug dealer villain of the piece. RZA is one of those guys who really loves himself and the film-makers seem to love him too, so there's an unbelievable twist at the end which has to be seen to be believed. The ending is frankly laughable in this respect, and a far cry from the power of the original movie. It's the epitome of sanitised, PG-13 entertainment, and I could cry. At least the rest of the film is in the right spirit, so it's only the ending where it falls apart.

Bad Movie... Stay Away

OK... Some movies are believable, some movies are hard to believe but possible.... This movie didn't make an attempt to be be either.

The acting was so so and all the gymnastics made the movie unbearable; the first fight scene set the tone for the movie. The first 15 minutes felt like an hour and you know you're watching a failed movie when it tries to impress you with unrealistic fight sequences.

But to top it all off.... You have a sociopathic, murderous drug dealer who has a change of life at the very end..... OMG.

Do not waste your time unless you're watching it for free.....and then try to stomach it.
