Editorial Reviews

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 the physical training discipline), Brick Mansions puts an entertaining twist on the action genre.

“Brick Mansions” is a Hollywood remake of a 2004 French action movie “District B13” (“Banlieue 13”). If you have seen the original, you have already seen the film virtually. And most probably you will find the original better.

The difference between the two versions is that the new, English-speaking one, which is set in the 2018 Detroit, features Paul Walker in his last completed role, as an undercover cop Damien Collier trying to find a stolen weapon of mass destruction. In the city’s crime-infested area called Brick Mansions, he forms an unlikely duo with a resident Lino (David Belle, reprising the role he played in the original), whose ex-girlfriend Lola (Catalina Denis) is kidnapped by the local crime lord Tremaine Alexander (RZA).

The screenplay is typical of Luc Besson – stock characters and fast-paced story with a few twists on the way. It is not that great, not that terrible, just good enough for a mindless action movie. What really matters is action, especially parkour-inspired action that made “District B13” something original. And that’s where “Brick Mansions” disappoints.

Thanks to David Belle and the film’s stunt team, the action scenes are decent, if not as great as that of the original. One big problem is the rather choppy editing that almost kills the tension of the action sequence, especially car and gun action.

Sadly this will be the last starring role for Paul Walker. I really miss him.

Brick Mansions is an action movie on caffeine. It's a movie that will make you say "what?" and "whoa!" in equal measures. Slick as David Belle jumping a building, cool as the other side of the pillow, and subtle as an exploding grenade, Brick Mansions is the funnest action film I've seen since Edge of Tomorrow. This is the Luc Besson we've all been missing; this is the Paul Walker we all loved; and this is the kind of action that makes movies special.

Brick Mansions doesn't want to be the next Bourne or Lethal Weapon; and it doesn't want to engage your brain on the next level. Brick Mansions wants to take you on the wildest, craziest ride it can for 1 hour, 30 minutes, and 9 seconds (if you stay for the credits...which you probably won't). Along for the ride is Paul Walker, playing the straight good guy with a bit of an edge that he did so well (*whimpers slightly* rest in peace, man). David Belle is present, as are his 12 abs and 26 tattoos (I didn't count. Don't quote me.), not to mention his parkour skills that make Spider-Man look ponderous and slow. RZA chews so much of the scenery I'm surprised we don't see the bite marks where he sank his pristine teeth in.

Though more than RZA's teeth, all over the film we see the fingerprints of Luc Besson. The man who, like a benevolent god, gave us Leon: The Professional, Taxi, and Nikita, and cursed us with something like five Arthur and the Invisibles movies...is back on top form with his singular and very often fabulously overblown style. The action here is some of the most inventive, fast-paced, slickest and coolest that we've seen in a while. Take David Belle for example. He doesn't brawl; he bounces through the air on coiled springlike-muscles like some nimble jungle cat.

In 2018, downtown Detroit becomes a walled in city...by a four foot wall. The Mayor wants to move the people out and build a place for rich people. Meanwhile Lino (David Belle) in a subplot is thwarting drug dealers as a vigilante. Detective Collier (Paul Walker) is also fighting against the bad guys downtown, while other cops are on the take.

Lino's ex-gf (Catalina Denis) gets kidnapped by the bad guys who also jack a vehicle with a suitcase neutron bomb now on a countdown. Collier has to go get the bomb that just happened to be strolling around the walled in city in a vehicle, something he is not smart enough to question until someone points it out to him how odd is the state of events.

The plot was all over the place and uneven. It appears Walker's dad was killed and he was looking for the culprit, but not that hard. David Belle had the best fight moves highlighted early on...i.e urban acrobatics. There was also a grindhouse cat fight. It is hard to imagine this botched screenplay was done by the same guy who did quality work like "Fifth Element" and "Transporter."

And you can't help but notice that in this film Paul Walker crashes his vehicle at 80-90+ mph and survives because he wore a seat belt.

Action with no substance. Appears to be overrated by Paul Walker fans moved by his untimely death.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

BRICK MANSIONS had the potential to be a decent film with some good action sequences and a social message, but it fails to deliver on both of those fronts. The lone bright spot in this film is a few scenes where David Belle gets to show off his parkour, but it was used far too little in my opinion. The plot is threadbare and knee-deep in action movie cliches. Paul Walker's character is out to avenge his father's death, David Belle's character just wants to clean up his neighborhood, and they are both trying to stop a nuclear bomb from destroying Detroit.

As this is a remake, I think it's entirely fair to compare it to the original. In this case, that film was DISTRICT B13 (or, BANLIEUE 13). I've only seen some clips from it, but I know that the basic plot is the same. However, why that one seemed to have worked is because it was relevant to French culture, in which the areas outside Paris proper, the "banlieues," are neglected and often havens for crime and violence. Translating this into something American audiences would understand isn't too difficult, and they made a good choice to set this in future Detroit, but they fail to do anything but pay lip service to the idea that there are areas in the US that have become ghetto-ized and neglected by the government that's supposed to protect and serve them. The way it was dealt with in the movie was extremely trite and cliched.

However, the other aspects of the film weren't that great either. The acting is poor across the board, and Paul Walker came across the best. When Paul Walker is the best actor in your movie, then you have a problem. Making matters worse was David Belle who, if that was his real voice, sounded completely unnatural in English. If it wasn't, then that was some very bad dubbing.
