    Luc Besson delivers another exciting action-packed adventure with District B13. In a dystopian future where out of control districts of Paris have been walled up and turned over to crime lords a gangster named Taha gets ahold of a nuclear missile, and it's up to an elite police officer to find the missile and disarm it. The action sequences are especially good, particularly the fight choreography. And, they're made even more dynamic and intense with the fast-paced directing style. Incredibly entertaining, District B13 is a high-adrenaline thrill ride.

    Good movie that could've used one more sustained action sequence for it to be really good. In a movie where it's all about the stylish action, you'd hope there would be more. Especially considering how the story is absolutely nothing. But, then again, the action scenes that are there are pretty tremendous and over-the-top. That alone makes this movie good, at least. Though it could've been much better.

    It may not serve as the most original film when you think about the story, but the atmosphere, the look, and the events are all very new and awesome to watch. As two unlikely men are teamed up to disarm a bomb stolen from a gang in Paris, they find trouble along the way, falling into predicaments leading to action sequences that will take your breath away. The choreography is brilliant, the action is top-notch, the story is believable but does reach a few over-the-top moments, and the editing is done so well that any viewer will be happy that they can follow every move by the main cast. From parkour to true explosive action, District B13 is a full-on adrenaline-fuelled-thrill-ride.
