SINGAPORE - Review Action thriller
BRICK MANSIONS (PG13)
90 minutes/Opens tomorrow
The story: In 2018, a lawless enclave in Detroit, Brick Mansions, is ruled by the likes of drug kingpin Tremaine (RZA). When a powerful bomb is stolen by his gang, undercover cop Damien Collier (Paul Walker) has to infiltrate the area placed under martial law. To find the weapon and disarm it, he has to rely on Brick Mansions denizen and ex-convict Lino (David Belle) for help. As the timer on the bomb counts down to zero, Damien begins to question everything he thought he knew. A remake of the French film District 13 (2004).
There is a whiff of the familiar about Brick Mansions, and not just because it is a remake of District 13.
The late Paul Walker plays an undercover cop who has to work with criminal elements to battle a ruthless villain.
It could well describe his work at one point or another on the popular The Fast And The Furious movie franchise.
