March 8, 2019
The film is characterized by a dull plot, uninspiring acting and thinly-sketched characters.
August 13, 2018
It's at its best a by-the-numbers thriller that represents exactly what Besson's career has become: one senseless, uninspired, unrealistic actioner after another.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 13, 2017
The film has a message at its core but the execution is way too simplistic with the actors acting as if they weren't paid.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 6, 2016
These types of films are going to be less fun without Walker pushing them along.

Fit to be condemned.

"Frankly, there are a lot of actors who have a lot of worse 'last films' on their credits."
May 9, 2014
Routine all the way, although Belle's moves are thrilling to watch.
May 5, 2014
Favouring vitality over originality, this needless remake of District 13 comes with fleet-footed sequences but plenty of stumbles, and strains far too hard to be 'cool'.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 4, 2014
It's solidly unsurprising (and often quite boring) generic fare, spiced up with steroidal pectorals and fetishy catfights.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 4, 2014
Watching Belle perform his gravity-defying leaps and bounds is still exhilarating, but first-time director Camille Delamarre's overuse of slo-mo effects and flashy editing diminishes their impact.
May 4, 2014
It's so forgettable though that if you do see it you may want to make note of the title so that you don't accidentally rent it when it comes out on DVD.

May 2, 2014
Too much muscle-headed action, too little parkour (Belle is getting on a bit) - this property is condemned.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 2, 2014
There are gunfights and car chases galore, but none of them are especially exciting since the film's characters are so lazily sketched.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 2, 2014
The film is poorly directed, edited, scripted, acted and everything else, and does scant justice both to Walker's presence and Belle's prodigious free running skills.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
May 2, 2014
This film lives down to my expectations, with a ludicrous plot involving civic pride and a neutron bomb, and a final twist so risible that it almost turns the whole thing into a comedy.

May 2, 2014
An abject lack of creativity to the writing and cohesion to the direction scupper any chance of the movie transcending its mundane status.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 1, 2014
Belle's balletic badassery and RZA's amusingly eccentric criminal cooking connoisseur only go so far to enliven an underwhelming whole.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
May 1, 2014
The Raid 2 got most of its kicks in situ; this deploys a lot of edit-suite trickery to generate only moderate dynamism.
May 1, 2014
This absurd and pointlessly convoluted remake of a decade-old French action flick feels dated and out of step in more ways than one.
