A sequel to 2004's "District 13 B".
As with the original, this has some amazing, almost balletic stunts
clearly done by the actors themselves, who are in this case two of the
originators and developers of the sport called parkour, which involves
scrambling and leaping around the urban landscape, jumping up and over
cars, out of 2nd floor windows, across rooftops.
In this age of CGI and wire assisted stunts, it's wonderful to watch
real human beings doing amazing, acrobatic things.
I also liked that the film had an interesting element of social satire
which made it smarter and more political than most of the action
blockbusters we get from Hollywood.
That said, sadly it did eventually burn out for me, on both the action
and the plot front. For the first half I thought this would end up one
of my all time favorite action pics. But the story logic gets stretched
further and further, and by the end the clever political set up turns a
bit silly, while some of the action starts to feel a bit repetitive.
Still, I'm glad I saw, and enjoyed it. I just doubt it's a film I'd
buy, or return to again.
