Brick Mansions


Rated PG-13 · 90 minutes · 2014

Action, Crime drama
Camille Delamarre—who edited Transporter 3 (2008), Taken 2 (2012), and other high-speed actioners for Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp studios—makes his directorial debut with this similar-minded crime thriller, a remake of District B13 (2004). Besson wrote that movie and this one, transplanting the story from a Parisian banlieue to a Detroit housing project but keeping the story intact: an undercover cop (Paul Walker, in one of his final roles) and an ex-con (David Belle, reprising his character from the original) try to take down a powerful slumlord (rapper RZA). This is shamelessly cartoonish B-movie fare, but at least it has a social conscience.
Director: Camille Delamarre
Producer: Claude Léger, Jonathan Vanger, Ryan Kavanaugh, Tucker Tooley, Matt Alvarez, Romuald Drault, Ginette Guillard and Henri Deneubourge
Cast: Paul Walker, David Belle, RZA, Gouchy Boy, Catalina Denis, Carlo Rota, Robert Maillet and Ayisha Issa
