If you're not interested in the pure action genre, stop here. You don't need to see this movie, and need read no further.
For the rest of you, this movie has potential, but suffers from one major fatal flaw: The director is way too twitchy in the edit room. You've got some great action here, let us see it please! If you want me to be amazed by the action you're filming, do *not* cut every 0.5 seconds. Instead, pull back, let me see what's happening and see it in a single shot.
I like the Yamakasi guys. I like the urban steeple-chase thing they've got going on, and I love the acrobatics. I'll be interested to see their next project. Maybe if they combined a Taxi Movie and a Yamakasi movie, they'd have enough actual content for a film! [Oh, but no "extreme" sports for pete's sake, keep it simple.]
Comparisons: Ong-Bak? B13 is not nearly as brutal, suffers from the twitchy director, but is more urban.
