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.

parkour action scenes and the fighting stunts. This is what action movies should be
like, not with some fancy classical music score in the background that distracts you from
the action ("Mm.. I wonder if it's a violin or a clarinet in the background, bom bom bom BOM!!
shazzz!! Oh crap, I missed the action just for thinking about that!!! -all the time-"), or the
usual machine made cloned action script that we see all the time in movies,
or with fancy CGI-Green/Blue Screen, that once again with the movie score, distracts you from
the action on the screen ("That DEFINITELY looks like CGI, and that definitely looks like the
actor(s) used a wire(s)"), or when you are looking at a cool fight scence and the cameras shift back and
forth quickly between angles, thus not allowing you to appreciate the fight scene as a whole,
as it is pretty common today in most Hollywood made movies.
I would highly recommend this 2 movies to anyone who likes FUN action
and fighting movies without much fancy stuff to them than a good fun plot and cool fighting/action scenes
with awesome real stunts.
I would also recommend Ong-Bak 1 & 2, The Protector (With Tony Jaa), since this movie reminds me a lot
of them. I first found this movies on the web in french,
I had to get the Blu-ray with the english dub since I'm not very fluent in french yet,
the dub is worth it if you don't speak french.
The only thing I didn't like was that part 2 seemed a little "short", and the lenguage was a little stupid
and senselessly obscene on the first part, other than that this are instant classics that anyone who
likes FUN action movies should own.
But if you enjoy watching incredibly gifted athletes doing great stunts done in a very believable way, and don't mind preposterous plots, then these movies might tickle your fancy. Just being able to watch David Belle (said to be the founder of parkour/parcour) is worth the price in my opinion.
So remember, don't expect any Profound Commentary on the Human Condition (thank goodness). Don't get too hung up on the silliness or the stereotypes, that's part of the fun. Just relax and enjoy great escapist fun with a good companion or two.
This came recommended (can't remember where from). Somewhere, there is an American version and its not the same at all.
Believe it or not the sequel is even better.
Definitely 'B' movies, but well worth your time and viewing pleasure. Good clean fun!
