District B13 (2004) WS A/1 Retail Blu-ray Disc
Action, Comedy, Sci-Fi
France's `District B13' borrows heavily from the U.S.'s gangster movie arsenal. To their credit their innovations mutate the genre in a thoroughly frenzied and entertaining way. As a science fiction thriller that doesn't take us far into the future, the film`s premise is about a turf war between a vigilante, Leito (David Belle) and a gang with drug interests. Living in a bleak time when all post offices and schools have been closed and the districts are barricaded, these dark ages present a police force that can barely tread water. Taking place in Paris in 2010, don't expect to see any scenesmore… with the Eiffel Tower or the Louvre Museum. Instead we get a landscape that is nearly as bleak as 'Children of Men' Children of Men (Widescreen Edition) and a story that has the bad guys blackmailing authorities with a nuetron bomb. Leito connects with Damien (Cyril Raffaelli), a cop to be reckoned with. Both build a rivalry and tension, but each has motivation enough to try and save their city.
Besides some incredible chase scenes that really add some spark, most of the lines are funnier than the ones given to Bruce Willis and 007. What usually is handled by running, this dynamic duo does by climbing walls and doing summersaults. Some cool menace emanates from the ringleader Tah and his muscular crew. The message about social justice may seem tacked on for some, but the integration begs to differ. It's understandable that there's been quite a critical stir for this foreign movie just waiting to move up on our radar screen. However, as smoothly as this movie is laid out, one wonders why Leito's sister (a likable, spunky performance by Dany Verissimo) is used as bait when the nuke could serve as meatier blackmail. I can only say that the tension grows in a movie that is nearly flawlessly paced. At least here France has done for gangster movies what other foreigners have done for automobiles.
