Better watch the ORIGINAL!!!
This movie is a bad REMAKE of the original french production: “Banlieue 13” ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0414852/ )…
And believe when I say that it’s not worth your time! The first movie has better acting and story! That is obvious by comparing the ratings of both monies… And to top that of, in the second movie they changed some details that you know “made sense”!!!
All in all, i recommend to anyone to watch the first movie! And i guarantee that you enjoy 84 minutes packed with action, free running, shooting and fighting…
Everything made up of bricks isn’t always rock solid!

Everything made up of bricks isn’t always rock solid. “Brick Mansions” proves that. The action film starring the late Paul Walker is a remake of the 2004 French film “District 13”. In it Paul Walker plays Officer Damien Collier from Detroit. It’s a few years into the future and things have got even worse for inner city Detroit. I’m talking from “I got shot” bad to “I got shot and there’s no hospitals” bad.
The government has decided to build walls around this area to keep people from going in and out and then to save money also decided to stop funding the basics such as hospitals, police, schools, etc. The poor area now known as Brick Mansions is basically being ran by a major drug dealer named Tremaine Alexander whose played by RZA (of the world famous Wu Tang Clan…More on that later). This guy is basically the wealthy king of a drug infested and broke down castle. His only opponent is a good (yet extremely tough) guy named Lino Dupree (David Belle) who is hell bent on stopping Tremaine and keeping drugs out of his neighborhood. This street smart and talented fighter is played by David Belle who actually starred in the original French film as well.
The good part of this film like most action films is indeed… You guessed it. THE ACTION. You can tell Paul Walker put forth 110% into nailing these brilliant and jaw dropping Parkour and Brazilian jiu jitsu moves. This style of movement and fighting is new to American audiences and Paul Walker was proud to introduce us to it in the best way possible. Having one of the eight founders, creators of the Parkour movement in Belle, helped tremendously and although he was retired from action films before this you could not tell at all. The 40-year-old moved around in this movie like a 20 year old Jackie Chan.
The bad part of this movie was the dialogue. Terrible and cliché dialogue ruined so many scenes for me. The dialogue was so over the top during a very pivotal part of the movie Tremaine, played by RZA (Wu-Tang Clan), emphatically states “Where I’m from cash rules everything around me.” You don’t have to be a huge Wu-Tang fan to get that reference from one of their most famous songs ‘C.R.E.A.M.” which stands for Cash Rules Everything Around Me. This quote and many others caused the entire audience to groan and chuckle during moments that were meant to be intense.
The movie wasn’t all bad though besides the action sequences it actually had a decent story foundation. The characters had great motives and back stories. There were even a couple good plot twists that were woven into the story seamlessly yet somehow it all just didn’t add up to a great film. Also, I love a happy ending more than most but something about this ending was almost “too happy.” Full review and MORE reviews at: HollywoodJunket.com
