Reviews: Brick Mansions (2014)

brick_mansionsReviews for this film from our members:

  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: You don’t see a movie like this because of its smart script. A movie like this is made for the action and punchiness of the delivery.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: For every sequence involving Lino’s parkour skills … there are at least two setpieces that are rather nondescript.
  • [New – 5/1/14] | Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Think of it as Cirque du Detriot, a showcase for stuntmen.
  • [New – 5/1/14] | Rob Hunter @ Film School Rejects
  • [New – 5/1/14] | MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: This absurd and pointlessly convoluted remake of a decade-old French action flick feels dated and out of step in more ways than one.
  • Ben Kendrick @ Screen Rant
    • Excerpt: Outside of a few entertaining action moments, Brick Mansions is a clumsy mess that rarely lands a memorable punch.
  • Kristin Dreyer Kramer @ NightsAndWeekends.com
  • Brent McKnight @ Beyond Hollywood
    • Excerpt: ‘Brick Mansions’ isn’t a great movie, but it’s fun, and shows Paul Walker doing what he did best, and that’s enough for me.
  • [New – 5/2/14] | Ross Miller @ Thoughts On Film
    • Excerpt: It’s passable for hardcore action fans and the genre has certainly seen worse but a disappointment considering the gleefully over-the-top premise and the action-packed promise it holds.
  • [New – 5/2/14] | Jason Pirodsky @ Expats.cz
    • Excerpt: Brick Mansions, on the other hand, is just passable action fare for the undemanding. But there’s room for that, too: you could do far worse for some brainless late-night thrills.
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: The narrative comes across as even sillier than it did in 2004, and the action less exhilarating, [while] the aggravating visual style makes it a trial to watch.
