still like the concept

District 13 is a walled off section of Paris where gangs and criminals have taken over. Leïto keeps blowing holes in the wall which brings in the cops. African gang leader Molko wants him to stop. Police captain Damien Tomaso dresses up to catch drug lords. There is a corrupt land deal with corrupt government officials. Mysterious government agents kill some cops which is caught on video by some kids. The dead cops are dumped in front of some gangsters in an attempt to heighten tension. Tomaso is framed by other cops. The President is unable to call on Tomaso and is forced to call in Gassman who is part of the corruption.

District 13 is still a compelling idea. It's reminiscent of 'Escape from New York' and also has a point to make about modern French society. The stunt are still great. I love some of the real action going on. However some of silliness does detract from the movie. Apparently, the military has guns but they can never draw fast enough to shoot them. I know it's a deliberate style but it gets annoyingly repetitive.

Decent action picture without the Hollywood over hype

I watched this movie some weeks ago and noted it was showing on TV again. As the description referred to another movie with the same characters, I opened the IMD to read the plot to ensure it was not the one I had seen. I found it was the one I had seen and it received a very low score from fellow IMDb members. I think it is undeserving of such a low mark, yes it is an action movie which is not everyone's cup of tea, and I do not watch the standard beef/hemen that churn out action movie after action movie etc etc with little aptitude for acting or even a decent script.

This movie was action however it was done with a little more flair than the average, it had a believable story of the future that seems all too real the way the world is going and the two lead actors were very believable and fit to say the least.

It was a very pleasurable movie to watch, no it is not going to take you to the extremes of all your emotions and senses, it is just a nice movie to watch with talented actors and stunts. I only speak English so I had to gauge the mood while reading subtitles and I still thought it was worth watching and I would watch it again.

great and highly enjoyable

Highly enjoyable action movie. Great fights, stunts and a good story which lead to a satisfying ending. Even after all this, I still prefer the first movie, because it introduced us to Parkour. Few years later, Parkour is popular the world over and it's because of films like this and Casino Royale. The first movie had arguably the best action sequences I'd seen for a long time, so it's no surprise for a sequel to pop up, which cranks up the action. Good performances, especially from the two leads, who have the right chemistry for this action comedy. Both Belle and Raffaelli are chief practitioners in the art of Parkour, but also show that they're pretty adept at acting too. I hope they make a third movie because it would be great to see these guys on screen together again. One of the better movies of the year unsurprisingly and I say that because I knew what to expect whilst watching this film and I wasn't disappointed. All in all a fun action movie, that many will enjoy, I know I did.
