District B13 (Banlieue 13) 2004

A cop and ex-thug try to find and diffuse a neutron bomb in a futuristic Paris ghetto.  High-action flick, made very special by the 2 leading stars Cyril Raffaelli, and David Belle.  Both men are highly trained, master stuntmen, very skilled martial artists and specialize in "parkour", which is the insanely groovy art of leaping off walls, balconies, staircases, over cars, and through small bathroom windows.  Which of course makes for fantastic fight and chase scenes.  Expertly filmed with grit, precision timing and pacing. Want real deal action instead of tired, aging Hollywood stars and CGI?  See this one then.
