Brick Mansions is a remake of the popular French movie franchise starter District B13.
The film, although a remake of the French original, does not do justice to the plot and storyline. In fact, even though Brick Mansions is the last film of the talented Fast & Furious star Paul Walker, it is not good enough to honor the memory of the actor who was such a good talent.
The one thing that does work in the film is Walker’s charisma. Walker radiates that same golden boy charisma that made the Fast & Furious films such a hit. Nut he is again let down by a script that does not give him enough space to perform and only gives cop-cliché dialogues and that once in a while dry humor that seems like a oasis in a desert far between.
