When I heard that Paul Walker had died earlier this year, I was surprised; I am not quite sure why I was, in hindsight. People die all the time, and while large amounts of money can prolong life, no one has yet found a way to extend it appreciably.
“Brick Mansions” is, I believe, the last film Walker worked on before the auto accident.
I wish it were something else because as far as I can tell, ‘Mansions’ looks like Luc Besson repeating himself. If the trailer is at all accurate, it plays like a retread of “District 13” which was itself a Francophile version of John Carpenter’s “Escape From New York,” with parkour.
