    • Synopsis :
      For eye-popping kinetic thrills; District B13 tops the class. In the near future; the worst ghettos of Paris have been walled in and left to rot. When a neutron bomb gets stolen by a criminal kingpin in seedy District B13; Damien--a cop who specializes in deep cover assignments (Cyril Raffaelli; a stuntman turned actor)--has to team up with Leito (David Belle); who grew up in the district and has his own reason for going back: the kingpin kidnapped his sister (tough yet adorable gamine Dany Verissimo). The plot takes a few preposterous turns; but it's beside the point--every turn serves only to maintain the relentless flow of sheer physical prowess. Belle is one of the inventors of a sport called parkour; which treats a city's architecture like an obstacle course; while running from gun-toting thugs; Leito leaps; bounds; and scrambles up and down buildings with astonishing grace. The fight sequences are just as down-to-earth yet over-the-top as Damien whirls; kicks; and crunches through armies of bad guys. Just as important is the tongue-in-cheek tone that never turns smirky; the movie doesn't take itself seriously; but doesn't mock itself or its basic cinematic pleasures. Anyone looking for a break from the overbearing CGI and self-important pomp of Hollywood action movies should watch District B13. --Bret Fetzer
