    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Faced with a story that doesn't make much sense, the filmmakers switch gears and try for a sociological statement - something about the marginalized and the neglected. This makes for a funny last five minutes, but sad, too, because Walker was better than this, even if his movies sometimes weren't. show more

    A tediously faithful remake of French filmmaker Luc Besson's terrific 2004 international hit "District 13," the Besson-produced Brick Mansions might have been mildly interesting had it been made a decade ago. show more

    The film is put together too choppily to appreciate the bounce-off-walls athleticism of parkour. That’s a shame, since “District 13” star Belle is known as a founder of the sport. show more

    The movie contributes nothing new to the genre, but disbelief is suspended willingly enough once the action gets up to speed. show more

    The parkour is breathtaking and the plot twists are off-the-charts ridiculous. show more

    The action may be serious, but Brick Mansions doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s a ridiculous movie that has the decency to acknowledge that it’s ridiculous. show more

    The thematic stuff, while well-intentioned, is also clunky, and ultimately beside the point. Action, obviously, is what you’re after. show more

    Mansions is like “Vehicle 19″ or “Takers,” dumb, noisy junk. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    There's no fun to be had here and if an action movie doesn't make the grade as escapist entertainment, what's the point? show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Brick Mansions is a non-starter: It chokes on its déjà vu, the hyperactive Mixmaster editing is exhausting and the characters’ banter is so leaden it might violate federal emission standards. show more

    It has to be in the top ten of all time worse movies .. It stunk . Plot, acting, all of it .. Save your money .. Hollywood has no shame on what quality of entertainment it releases , use a big name ( Paul Walker ) to suck us in and then deliver crap .. UGH

    This had to be one of the worst movies I've seen in a awhile! The plot made no sense and the action sequences were COMPLETELY unbelievable and unrealistic even for a Hollywood action movie. Now I see why they shelved this movie after it's creation. Do not waste your time or money!
