Stars: Paul Walker, David Belle, RZA, Gouchy Boy
This remake of the French film District B13, subs Detroit for Paris, but tells the same tale. An undercover cop and an ex-gangster join forces in the walled-off Motor City to stop a nefarious criminal from wreaking havoc.
Expect this taut drama to do well at the box office in the run-up to the 2015 release of the late Paul Walker’s final Fast & Furious film. In addition to the beloved Walker, Brick Mansions offers intricate gunplay, well-choreographed fight scenes and an enigmatic villain. What’s not to like? –p.d. lee
