It's 2013 and Parisian ghetto District 13 has become so dangerous the authorities have walled it in and left its inhabitants to rot. But when a neutron weapon is stolen by a ghetto gangmember, enter super-cop Damien (Cyril Raffaelli) and wrongly-imprisoned ghetto-dweller Leito (David Belle). They're both hard-as-nails and experts in Le Parkour, an extreme sport involving wall scaling, roof-running and building-to-building leaping...
From the pen of multi-talented action maestro Luc Besson (director of Leon, producer of The Transporter) comes a full throttle action-thriller with physical thrills and spills to rival even Ong-Bak!

Proving that there's a bit more to French cinema than some intense navel-gazing, this is a robust and slick take on "Escape from New York" with a cop busting into the eponymous walled-in roughhouse district to locate a bomb. The plot's not the thing here, it's the stylish action fights masterminded by Raffaelli and Belle, balletic sequences that soar. This was the film that introduced the world to parkour, and even though there isn't enough it, what there is thrillingly exuberant.

Good film, terrible quality
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 17/11/2009 20:56:46
So I had this film on DVD, liked it, bought it on blu-ray. After forwarding through an endles amount of ads, I came to what looks to be one of the crappiest menu screens ever. I'm not expecting Iron Man type menus here, but something better than a GCSE project.
Onwards and upwards, I started the film. Well, the DVD transfer isn't much better. The grain is appalling, and obviously no work has been done bringing this up to scratch. They've simply dumped the film on a BD and sold it. Job done. Thanks but no thanks. Save your money and buy the DVD (which unfortunately also has an endless amount of ads at the beginning..).

Great film, if you like to see some of the best stunts and Parkour all mashed up into a film with a plot you can just about stand. Simply brilliant! Cyrill who also did Die Hard 4 (the Circus act ;-) ) brings himself out into his element. Buy it!

One hell of an action movie!

produced by Luc Besson, filled with incredible action scenes and mind blowing stunts, who said than frenchies (i am one of them!) couldn't do proper action movies?
easily on par with the best american productions, it's 80min. of pure dynamite!

One To Watch!

From the very first scene you realise that you are watching something special. This film really does blow your mind.
Ok I admit that the general storyline has been done a number of times by hollywood... however hollywood would never be able to pull it off in the same style.
- and I do hope that they don't even try.
If you want a film that will allow you to seat back, switch the brain off and enjoy... then this is the film for you.
I love this film so much that I brought it on both standard and blu-ray DVD.
