Brick Mansions actually looks good. That's not saying the final product will be, but this trailer shows some potential.
It doesn't hurt that District B13 star Davide Belle is in it, essentially playing the same character he played in the original. The late Paul Walker takes over for Cyril Raffaelli. Luc Besson is back as co-writer. And there's a lot of parkour.
Now, we don't need a District B13 remake, nor did anyone demand it. I'd rather see the original given a re-release so the whole world can bask in how awesome it is. But I accept that Hollywood and filmmakers around the globe are going to remake good movies. We can't fight it, so we might as well judge each flick as it comes.
Brick Mansions hits April 25. I anticipate a lot of interest given it's one of Walker's last roles, and it looks like he was up to the challenge.
