District B13

This French action film, which was written by Luc "The Man" Besson, showcases a relatively new form of martial arts called Parkour, the art of free running. While it might not sound like much it's actually pretty friggin' sweet to see in action! The plot is kind of like Escape from New York; a cop must infiltrate a bordered city called District B13 in order to get some nuclear bombs away from a crazed drug dealer. It's simple and pretty cliched, but the action scenes are what it's all about and they're damned cool for the most part. I just with there were more fights in it (the Parkour stuff is the main focus), but what's there is decent.

3 out of 5
