Ridiculous, but enjoyable over the top French action movie. It's the merde.

Pretty cool parkour moves, but thats about all this movie has going for it. If you think Chuck Norris or Van Damme are good actors, you'll like this movie.

Entertaining, but brainless, action cop drama. Use of parkour in the action scenes is amazing..... especially considering that the star did a lot of his own stunts, like jumping between buildings. Let's see the spoiled Hwood action heroes put that out.

A good action movie. The fight scenes and stunts are pretty amazing. The plot is a pretty average and the acting could be good or bad, hard to tell as always with foreign language films, even with subtitles. The action is the key here and it is great. The whole future/post apocalyptic setting is questionable. Sort of just looks like a ghetto. Entertaining movie, if you like martial arts action movies with great stunts.

The parkour-style acrobatics in this movie are amazing and well worth a look even if nothing else about the movie appeals to you.
