parkour. It is simply the coolest thing on earth.
District 13 is the first real parkour movie, with the founders of the sport starring in lead roles. No stunt doubles, no wires, no CGI. Just raw, inhuman talent.
With such awesome performers busting out moves that puts Jackie Chan to shame, you might think there wouldn't be much need for story. And while the story in District 13 doesn't really bring anything you haven't seen before, it's the setting which is the real star of the film: A future dystopia where the only people who don't carry an arsenal of handguns, are dead.
It's all a bit silly, and don't hold even a drop of water, but common... it's just an action film.
