(2004 | France) dir Pierre Morel w/David Belle, Cyril Raffaelli [84 min]
In the near future, the slums of Paris have been walled off and left for dead. Inside the walls, there is a thriving criminal culture and a minority of innocent residents. When Leïto (Belle), one of the righteous citizens, discovers his sister’s been kidnapped, he teams up with a no-nonsense super-cop (Raffaelli) and the pair races against time to save her. Combining parkour, martial arts, and some not very subtle political messages, DISTRICT B13 delivers a thrill-ride like few others.
“Like its stunt work, [District B13] is both ridiculously hyperactive and a muscular feat of absolute confidence. I don’t expect to have a more adrenalizing time at the movies this summer.” —Wesley Morris, Boston Globe (Read the Review)
“Think of ‘Escape from New York’ starring two French Spidermen on speed!” —KJ Doughton, Film Threat (Read the Review)
