Description

French action sequel written and produced by Luc Besson. The death of gang overlord Taha Bemamud (Bibi Naceri) at the end of the first film has left a power vacuum, and a battle for total control of the area is now raging between five rival territorial gang lords, all of whom want to step into Taha's position. David Belle and Cyril Raffaelli reprise their roles as Leito and Damien, who return to the ravaged District 13 on a mission to bring peace to the sector before the Parisian secret services take drastic measures to solve the problem.

Synopsis
The loud, intense, and explosive action saga BANLIEUE 13: ULTIMATUM is a sequel to the 2004 European blockbuster BANLIEUE 13. This second installment was directed by Patrick Alessandrin but initially gestated from the vision of writer-producer Luc Besson, also responsible for scripting and producing the first go-round. ULTIMATUM unfurls three years after the original, in the slightly dystopian realm of suburban Paris, circa 2013. Ultra-violence now riddles that sphere -- to such a degree that cops have imposed a lockdown on the area, to little avail. Significantly, the neighborhood is also formally subdivided into ethnic enclaves, including Arabic, Asian, Caucasian, and African. As the tale opens, a crack team of rogue cops pulls off a police assassination inside of the district, prompting the police chief (Daniel Duval) to try to persuade the president (Philippe Torreton) to bulldoze the area and let the cops cash in on the turf's real estate value. In response, two of the said rogues, Damien (Cyril Raffaelli) and Leito (David Belle), hit the streets, guns blazing, and exude all of the force at their disposal to save the region from complete obliteration.

Movie Critics
Chicago Sun-Times
3 stars out of 4 -- "These actors are clearly in superb physical shape....They leap, fall, tumble, twist, climb up and down walls and buildings...and have an alarming eagerness to jump out of buildings without knowing what is below."
Roger Ebert (24 Feb 2010, )
Hollywood Reporter
"[T]his Luc Besson production aims to please and nails its targets with more speed and style than most of its higher-priced competition."
Hollywood Reporter Staff (4 Feb 2010, )
Los Angeles Times
"[T]he only explosiveness moviegoers will care about is stuntworthy: Rafaelli dexterously fending off attackers while protecting a valuable Van Gogh..."
Robert Abele (5 Feb 2010, )
New York Times
"The otherworldly bodies in DISTRICT 13: ULTIMATUM fly over, and sometimes against, walls like hard rubber balls. They bounce and soar..."
Manohla Dargis (5 Feb 2010, )
Premiere
3 stars out of 4 -- "An action-packed blast....Using parkour and martial arts, this action series proves the French know how to kick some ass."
