District 13: Ultimatum [banlieue 13: Ultimatum] Review


Very Good
Luc Besson and pals are back with another crazed action movie that, despite its ludicrous plotting, keeps us entertained with sheer energy and wit. And the central duo is turning into a pretty good movie team.

It's been three years since the super-fit cop Damien (Raffaelli) teamed up with the shady, athletic Leito (Belle) to bring the government to its knees.

Predictably, nothing has changed since then and in 2013, France's new president (Torreton) is convinced to take drastic actions against the violent thugs in District 13. Except that the whole scenario has been staged by the secret security service, led by the mysterious Gassman (Duval) and his top goon Roland (Mosconi), who try to do away with Damien and Leito (as if!), in order to enact their evil plan.

District B13 Review


Weak
You've got to hand it to Luc Besson: The guy knows how the system works. After creating one of the best crime films of the '90s (1994's The Professional), Besson started working on scripts and producing, while also directing the exhaustingly stylistic The Fifth Element. Besson makes most of his money these days by writing and producing action flicks that often specialize in stunts and kung fu. At last we left him, he was pairing an aerobatic Jet Li with a piano-playing Morgan Freeman in Unleashed. Now, he goes back to his native France for the futuristic action flick District B13.

Leito (David Belle) has just stolen a mighty big amount of coke from Taha (Bibi Naceri) and is in the middle of disposing of it when he hears gunshots. It's Taha's trusty henchman, K2 (Tony D'Amario), dismissing Leito's bodyguards. Leito escapes his certain fate in the first of many acts of gymnastic fighting and running. In retaliation, Taha kidnaps Lola, Leito's little sister, and gets the cops to take in Leito. Six months later, Leito is released by undercover cop Damien (Cyril Raffaelli) to save District B13 when Taha stumbles on a test bomb that could wipe out everything in an 8km radius of where it lands. Together, they strike out to get the bomb and save Lola with their necks intact.
