365 Movies Day #17 "Banlieue 13"
Awhile back, cruising facebook I saw someone post an amazing action sequence. This guy is running from a bunch of folks down a hallway...he's jumping though windows, from building to building and is doing all this amazing stuff. One of the best chase scenes I'd ever seen.
I got proactive and tracked the source of that video down to "Banlieue 13". The film's stars, Cyril Raffaelli and the father of modern parkour David Belle are just incredible to watch. Lots of great action and a decent plot keep the hits coming and leave you wanting more. I don't suggest trying to find it in the film's sequel though. Not nearly as good.
