DOUBLE FEATURE – District B13 (2004) / District 13: Ultimatum (2009)

This week on Alcohollywood, we’re giving you a double-dose of action with the French parkour thrill rides District B13 and District 13: Ultimatum! These mid-2000s French action pics, produced by Luc Besson, follow a cop (Cyril Raffaelli) and a thief (parkour co-founder David Belle) as they save the downtrodden residents of District 13, a walled-up ghetto in future Paris, from both overly-ambitious gangsters and an uncaring, homocidal dystopian government. Filled with wonderfully choreographed fight scenes and an unexpected dash of energy and humor, the District B13 series is definitely a great dose of Jackie Chan-esque kinetic thrills. In order to fuel your need for wall-jumps and crazy flips, we’ve got just the drink and rules to get you through these two films!
