District B13- May 10th

District B13 (2006)
French- Action
Rated- “R”
Runtime 86 min.
dir. Pierre Morel
 

Oh great, another French flick.  This one is about some kind of futuristic altered France, where poor and crime-ridden areas have been walled and ghettoed.  Military loses a bomb, bad guys get ahold of it, yadda yadda yadda.

Story/Writing: .5/2

Not Great.

Acting: 1/2

Not that much better.

Photography/Set: 1.5/2

Actually pretty good, professional quality.

Sound/FX: 1.5/2

Surprisingly quality fight sequences.  The free-running stuff was a little blah and overused, but not terrible.  The soundtrack was pretty bad though, techo fed through an audio wood chipper or something.

Misc: .5/2

At no point did I find myself really enjoying this movie.

VERDICT: 5/10

And, chances are, you won’t find yourself enjoying it either.
