In a dystopian Detroit, abandoned brick mansions left from better times now house only the most dangerous criminals. Unable to control the crime, the police constructed a colossal containment wall around this area to protect the rest of the city. For undercover cop Damien Collier (Paul Walker) every day is a battle against corruption. For Lino (David Belle), every day is a fight to live an honest life. Their paths never should have crossed, but when drug kingpin, Tremaine (RZA) kidnaps Lino’s girlfriend, Damien reluctantly accepts the help of the fearless ex-convict, and together they must stop a sinister plot to devastate the entire city. With stylized action featuring thrilling Parkour stunts (David Belle is the co-founder of the physical training discipline), Brick Mansions puts an entertaining twist on the action genre.

Watch The Riveting New Trailer For BRICK MANSIONS
Take that in mind as we now look at the latest second trailer for the film, marking Luc Besson protegè Camille Delamarre's directorial debut. While much of the analysis among observers so far is that it basically resembles the original 2004 Pierre Morrel helmer almost beat for beat, today's second trailer does carry a more definitive effect as we are offered small, split-second glimpses into the depth of Walker's character, Damien, and the rift between him and actor RZA's role as the villain, Tremaine. In my view, aside from the similarities drawn between both films, this particular promo does an exceptional job at putting Walker front and center with actor and parkour impressario David Belle as the driving force of the high-speed action both actors will endure. In my opinion, whether or not you approve remakes, I think Brick Mansions is going to deliver a fine spectacle with tons of action and a good story, with a largely exceptional cast headlined by one leading man in the middle of his finest hour in the world of cinema.
Brick Mansions opens April 25. Support this film. Don't let it tank.
