Brick Mansions - Trailer
Director Camille DelamarreYear 2014Genre(s) Action, Adventure
Brick Mansions is a Detroit district overrun with violent crime, inhabited by gangs and fuelled by drugs; an area so brutal, authorities were forced to build a wall around it. One particularly agile resident named Lino has managed to anger some of the more virile crime bosses by possessing a strong moral compass regarding the treatment of his neighbours. As he is quickly hunted down, it seems he is no match for his enemies - though he could be a match for the city's law enforcement. Damien is a cop enlisted to go undercover after one gang leader named Tremaine holds the Mayor and half the city hostage. He must team up (and keep up) with Lino if they want to stop Tremaine from destroying the city with a seriously destructive neutron bomb. Initially hostile towards each other, can Damien and Lino cast aside their differences to save their people?
'Brick Mansions' is a high-action dystopian crime thriller and a re-make of the highly well-received 2004 French movie 'District 13'.
