MOVIE REVIEW:District 13: Ultimatum
Auhtor:

   

Now the first B13 has a passable plot for action movie such as this and
didn't take itself too seriously. Which is a positive thing, since it
focused more on the parkour action which I am sure most of the audience
want to watch. Sure the plot has to be there for the ride, but for a
movie such as this it just ain't the main element. But this time around
for "Ultimatum" it focuses too much on the plot for it's own good and
tries to make it seem like one of those "Bourne" films which doesn't
really work. Mainly since the the concept and the direction is still
pretty much silly and can't be taken seriously. What I wanted was more
of the awesome adrenaline pumped action sequences that was in the first
"B13" movie. And for the most part that is what I got out of this,
there is some great fight sequences in this and some great parkour
sequences as well. But when it came to just talking and moving the plot
along, that is where the slow down starts to come in which takes away
from the fast paced action scenes. I am not really going to go in depth
with the plot, but I will just say it's more of a slow paced and a bit
more plot heavy compared to the first "B13". Basically the bad guys
that are in high authority wants to blow up the ghetto district, by
convincing the president to launch a bomb on the ghettos in "B13" by
trying to somewhat frame some of the gangs in "B13". And while this is
going on there is some conflict with the gangs and the authorities like
the police. There are also more side character this time around, but
none of them is memorable at least K2 and his boss Taha was somewhat
memorable from the first film. Anyways it's been 5 years for this
worthy sequel to come along, and if there is another sequel I hope to
not have to wait another 5 years for it. Plus both those two actors and
parkour experts are almost in their 40's now, and might slow down their
performance with the stunts and all. It would have also been cool if K2
and even Leito's sister made a appearance or even a cameo, but too bad
the guy that played K2 died of a heart attack in real life.

7.6/10

Happened to catch this sequel on Sky Movies (which was transmitted
sub-titled, rather than dubbed, so "thank you" Sky, for that) and
thought it was great. I enjoyed it so much that I've just bought the
first District 13 film on DVD from Amazon.

Cyril Raffaelli makes a good hero in the Jason Stathan mold and I
thought the fight choreography was exceptional – as good as anything
that comes out of Hong Kong, more realistic than theatrical, and very
effective for that.

I was very impressed with Elodie Yung, too. Who wouldn't be.

Can't wait to see the first film, now …

I was really hoping for something amazing after the first one, but this
was just OK. David Belle is the founder of French parkour and unlike to
the first one, he really didn't show much skill in this one. He did
have one crazy jump though. Cyril Raffaelli also didn't show off his
karate and wushu skills like the first. He did have a couple cool
scenes though. Now the story is a little continued from the first, but
very weak compared to the first. But they did add a lot of colorful
characters in this one that I enjoyed. They all had their personal
fighting style or action. The music in this film was pretty nice and
worked well with the action. Now back to the story of the film. It is
the same basic background like the first, but with a different bad guy.
I guess you could say is it is pretty uneventful. All you really wait
for is Belle or Raffaelli to do something cool. Don't get me wrong, I
did enjoy parts of the film, just not all of it.
