Editorial Reviews

With bone crunching fights and death defying leaps, this adrenaline charged follow-up takes the groundbreaking parkour action from DISTRICT B13 to thrilling new heights. (Fangoria) Two years have passed since elite police officer Damien Tomasso (Cyril Raffaelli) teamed up with reformed vigilante Leito (David Belle) to save the notorious District 13, a racially charged ghetto populated by violent drug dealing gangs and vicious killers. Despite government promises to maintain order, the state of the district has deteriorated. A group of corrupt cops and elected officials conspire to cash in on the redevelopment of the district by proposing its destruction under nuclear air strike. Damian and Leito must join forces again, using their martial arts and unique physical skills, to bring peace to the neighborhood by any means necessary.

4.0 out of 5 stars "I'll distract them. You play Spider-Man." June 21, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In watching DISTRICT 13: ULTIMATUM, you're subjected to the tired political subtext and also the sometimes ridiculous plot. Writer/producer Luc Besson, historically, hasn't sold heaps of movie tickets by virtue of his having been the voice of social conscience, and his attempts here are awkward. Doesn't matter, though. The first movie rocked it. This sequel rocks it equally. The two stars, David Belle and Cyril Raffaelli, are back for another bone-bruising round of no-wires, no-CG stunts and fight scenes. "C'est magnifique!" and also "Le chat est sur le tableau." And that's my French.

Three years after what went down in the first film, and the government has changed hands, and yet things remain the same. That barbed wall still stands tall and menacing, still isolates the lawless territory known as District 13 from the more civilized parts of Paris. In the dystopian near future of 2016, an uneasy sort of peace exists between law enforcement and the ruling gangs of District 13. But now corrupt cops are intent on stirring things up, on enticing riots, the end game being the razing of these bleak tenements and thus raking in the resulting rewards of suddenly available real estate.

When Leito (Belle), District 13's well-meaning rogue, ends up with evidence incriminating the police, it's only a matter of time before he joins forces again with his old friend Damien Tomasso, the formidable and baldy-domed Army Captain assigned to the police Special Forces. On his end, Damien (Raffaelli) has found himself framed and locked up by his fellow police officers. This tends to happen when you're an honest cop. Leito springs Damien, and away they go, striving to save the barricaded slums and their unsavory populace from extinction.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ultimatum July 25, 2010
Format:DVD
The first District 13 was so much better. The dubbing was amazing and the action was hardcore. The movie just flew right through and before you knew it, the film as over.

This one had real bad dubbing and just wasn't as exciting as the first. I enjoyed it but not enough to rush out and buy it.The action was still good but the feel of the movie was just not there this time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paris as we've never seen it! March 7, 2010
Format:DVD
For those of us who unfortunately have not seen the original BANLIEUE 13 - aka DISTRICT 13 - (made in 2004 with the same crew except for the director - Pierre Morel), some of the background information that usually follows in a sequel is missing and according to many, the sequel here BANLIEUE 13:ULTIMATUM - aka DISTRICT 13: ULTIMATUM is not as strong a film. And perhaps that allows the viewer to appreciate fine French film making without the comparison!

Luc Besson (of the Trasnporter series et al) wrote this script (or rather, this plan of choreography, as there is not a lot of spoken dialogue in this fast-paced thriller) and Patrick Allessandrin directs a story of a region of Paris (District 13) that is cordoned off the rest of Paris by a group of five warlords who manage to control the drug ridden violent region. Basically the tale is that of two men - Captain Damien Tomaso (Cyril Raffaelli) and undercover cop of the 'good' police and Leďto (David Belle), an ex-thug who in the previous film infiltrated a gang in order to defuse a neutron bomb. That was supposedly in 2010. The film opens some years later when District 13 is now in control of power over the government and the 'bad police' are attempting to destroy the area and rebuild according to their greedy plans. The action is the story and the action is immensely exciting! David Belle invented a discipline known as Parkour, which consists of moving quickly and efficiently in any environment, using only the abilities of the human body, and though his acting credits are minimal, he is stupefying in his live action role. Belle and Raffaelli are the reasons to watch this thriller as their screen chemistry is magnetic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Badass! January 3, 2012
By monaone
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I know some people think that French movies are-- well, boring and unremarkable.
But THIS is a movie about fighting, kicking ass, and beautiful women fighting and kicking ass.
Eat that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the original, still good March 2, 2010
By Octo66
Format:DVD
District B13 Ultimatum is not as good as the original, true, but still has an interesting plot and great action.
Same two stars are back, and this time do a little more fighting, and a little less parcour. If you didn't see District B13 (first one), you should. It is a five star movie. If you loved the first one, be warned this one isn't as good, then get it anyway and enjoy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the original May 5, 2010
By X. Li
Format:DVD
Both plot/story and emotional impact are much weaker than the original one. Pretty disappointed about this lame sequel, except the stunning performance of a stylish and sexy gang leader "Tao" who is new to the original cast.

For those who haven't seen the original District B13, it's a masterpiece of action/fight films you got to watch - simply breathless and spectacular!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great martial arts scenes!
I have watched the movie twice. The first time was 6 months ago. I thought I was going to be bored. The action scenes more that made up for the predictable ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for a sequel
While definately the first one was hands down a great parkour/french action movie, this one gives just enough action to make you forget its lack of originality.
