Christopher Webster [Celluloid 02.12.14] action thriller dystopic



Brick Mansions, the English language remake of Europa Corp.'s successful District 13 series is also the last film that Paul Walker completed before his tragic passing. A little ham-fisted, but in that exploitation way that we all love, Brick Mansions looks like it could be a blast for people not farmilliar with the original series.

Synopsis:
In a dystopian Detroit, abandoned brick mansions left from better times now house only the most dangerous criminals. Unable to control the crime, the police constructed a colossal containment wall around this area to protect the rest of the city.

For undercover cop Damien Collier (Paul Walker), every day is a battle against corruption. For Lino (David Belle), every day is a fight to live an honest life. Their paths never should have crossed, but when drug kingpin, Tremaine (RZA) kidnaps Lino's girlfriend, Damien reluctantly accepts the help of the fearless ex-convict, and together they must stop a sinister plot to devastate the entire city.

With stylized action featuring thrilling Parkour stunts (David Belle is the co-founder of this physical training discipline), Brick Mansions puts an entertaining twist on the action genre.


Release Date: April 25th
Directed by: Camille Delamarre
Written by: Luc Besson
Cast: Paul Walker, David Belle, RZA

My only hope is that they've made this their own movie. I see a lot of scenes from the old movie but I also see some new scenes, so I'm cautiously optimistic overall
