District B-13 (2004): French is Not Always Bad
December 30, 2009 by 2 Comments
District B-13 is a massively awesome French action flick. I personally never liked French films from their dreary sequences, but legendary director Pierre Morel directed this film, based on the art of Parkour, which was created by David Belle, the star of this film. In the year 2010, a man's sister is kidnapped, he and a cop must find the drug lord that has her, along with a deadly nuclear missle. District B-13 has been walled off, like other districts in France. The film follows them in a very intense, action-packed view, letting all of the stunts show from the actors' hard work. This film's best aspect was the great action and stunts, all performed by the actors. Another good aspect was the respectable acting from David Belle, who was only in commercials and miraculous home videos until then. This is a "buy" film, because even now, I want to see it again.
