Starring: Cyril Raffaelli, David Belle, Philippe Torreton, Daniel
Duval, Elodie Yung Directed by: Patrick Alessandrin
Opening Date: February 5, 2010
Damien and Leito (David Belle and Cyril Raffaelli) return to District
13 on a mission to bring peace to the troubled sector that is controlled
by five different gang bosses, before the city's secret services take
drastic measures to solve the problem.
Not to be confused with the recent
District 9 hit movie in way,
District 13 Ultimatum is the Patrick Alessandrin-helmed sequel to
French-language sci-fi actioner
District B13, which stole a few ideas from the original
Escape from New York.
District 13 in this case was a lawless suburb in Paris, France overrun
by gangsters which the authorities simply walled off.
The original movie featured some spectacular CGI-free acrobat stunt
work of characters clambering up wall faces.
