District B13

Posted by martinteller on October 13, 2006

A parkour combo of Escape from New York, Gymkata, and… I dunno, pick any Jackie Chan movie, let’s say Rumble in the Bronx.  The plot is old hat (and has a couple of gaping holes) and the dialogue is laughable, but surprisingly the acting isn’t that bad.  The social commentary is a nice try, but not very satisfying.  What matters here is the action, which is terrific at first, but slows down more and more as the film progresses.  Would have been better if they’d managed to keep the adrenaline going.  Rating: 6
