Viva la PakourBy KH08 from Bristol , 11 Oct 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]WOW WOW WOW WOW.
Forget your van Damne, forget dare I say it Jackie Chan and forget even Ong Bak.
The action in this film is amazing in particular the opening chase and the casino scene. Even the fight scenes are well crafted.
If you admired the wacky French PAkour boys (BBC did the advert of the guy getting home to watch telly) jumping and flying then check this out.
Don't bother with the crap English dubbing stick with the french language and subtitles. Sit back and enjoy

Tres energetiqueBy RJNeb2 (1016 reviews) from London , 04 Jan 2013Proving that there's a bit more to French cinema than some intense navel-gazing, this is a robust and slick take on 'Escape from New York' with a cop busting into the eponymous walled-in roughhouse district to locate a bomb. The plot's not the thing here, it's the stylish action fights masterminded by Raffaelli and Belle, balletic sequences that soar. This was the film that introduced the world to parkour, and even though there isn't enough it, what there is thrillingly exuberant.
Flimsy story, fantastic, physical, human actionBy markharrison04 (19 reviews) , 20 Dec 2012I didn't buy the storyline at all really, just used as a vehicle for the action to move around but I have to say, the action scenes are fantastic and I love the way they seemingly bounce off walls, jump through those tiny windows you see above doorframes, jump over stairwells, etc. Loved it and with a better storyline, I would have given it another star.
