Trivia

The film is set in 2016 but many have mistranslated details from the first film and believe it to be 2013. In the first film the opening script says that social issues forced the goverment to agree to build the wall around District 13 in 2010, a camera shot of the wall in the opening credits show "completed 2010" in French. Then it says "three years later" and the film starts, meaning District 13 is set in 2013 and District 13: Ultimatum is 2016, three years after the events of the first film. See more »

Avoid the dubbed version ...
19 August 2010 | by Matti-ManSee all my reviews

Happened to catch this sequel on Sky Movies (which was transmitted sub-titled, rather than dubbed, so "thank you" Sky, for that) and thought it was great. I enjoyed it so much that I've just bought the first District 13 film on DVD from Amazon.

Cyril Raffaelli makes a good hero in the Jason Stathan mold and I thought the fight choreography was exceptional - as good as anything that comes out of Hong Kong, more realistic than theatrical, and very effective for that.

I was very impressed with Elodie Yung, too. Who wouldn't be?

Can't wait to see the first film, now ...
