The late Fast & Furious star Paul Walker takes it to the limit in the gritty thrill-ride Brick Mansions. Directed by Camille Delamarre and written by Luc Besson, Robert Mark Kamen and Bibi Naceri, the film was Walker’s last completed project before his untimely death on November 30, 2013 and the opening credits has a dedication to him. Starring alongside Walker are David Belle, RZA, Catalina Denis, Robert Maillet, Carlo Rota, Kwasi Songui and Ayisha Issa. Brick Mansions is a remake of the 2004 French film District B13 -- which Belle had also starred in, and features incredible high-flying Parkour stunts.
Set in 2018 in a dystopian Detroit, Walker stars as an undercover cop named Damien who is determined to bring down Tremaine, the crime lord responsible for his father’s murder. Tremaine rules “Brick Mansions,” a place left from better times that now houses the most violent criminals. Since the police cannot control the crime, a colossal containment wall has been constructed to separate this area from the rest of the city. Within the walls, ex-convict Lino fights to live an honest life until his girlfriend is kidnapped by Tremaine. Although Damien and Lino’s paths should never have crossed, they end up becoming unlikely allies. Working together, they try to bring down Tremaine and stop a deadlier plot involving a stolen bomb that could devastate the entire city.
