    Great story concept, poor execution and acting.

    With respect to the departed Paul Walker, unfortunately the swan songs of many actors, whether their deaths were expected or not, usually are not their best films. "Brick Mansions" is not so different. It's another run-of-the-mill action movie that only has the notable poignancy of being Walker's final completed film.

    This movie was never gonna be great, I think that can be agreed on, but in all honesty it does succeed in at least being quite entertaining. The story and script are obviously not the centre of the movie nor it's strong suits, having Paul Walker is a good addition and the reason anyone watched this I think however in the first place, not to mention he died before it's released. The only reason to watch this film at all is to have some decent mindless action with a few laughs, and at least the action is entertaining. Is it at all believable : no, and you don't have to watch more than the trailer to know that. It does at least keep you busy watching something while not needing to give all your attention, it can be fun to watch, but also some of the action is just super dumb and you kinda wonder why you bothered watching it at that moment. The end is predictable honestly and not a bad ending in any regard. Overall the movie doesn't actually seem low budget or anything of the sort, some of the bullet sounds and such are pretty fake but not awful, and there isn't a whole lot of gunshots anyways because most is hand to hand. So all in all ok movie to watch for mindless action and to see on of Walkers last films, not much for new story anywhere in it but does have a good uplifting ending.

    Brick Mansions is a disappointing film. It is about an undercover Detroit cop navigates a dangerous neighborhood that's surrounded by a containment wall with the help of an ex-con in order to bring down a crime lord. Paul Walker and David Belle give horrible performances. The screenplay is badly written. Camille Delamarre did a terrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture.
