Reviewing DISTRICT 13: ULTIMATUM, Matt McAllister of Total Sci-Fi said: “Shot with a breathless efficiency by director Patrick Alessandrin, this is a vibrant action movie that generally improves on the original.” Variety’s Jordan Mintzer praised: “The pic skillfully blends combat with social messaging, in an explosive blend that should satisfy fans,” while Daily Star raved, “Extraordinary! The gravity-defying and bone-breaking action is amazing.” And Channel4’s Neil Smith said: “An entertaining sequel with a political subtext that doesn’t get in the way of the wall-to-wall action.”
