Goofs:
Continuity: (at around 1h 7 mins) Damien and Lino use the exterior fire escape ladder to go up the building being followed by Tremaine and his men. They pull down the first section of the ladder and at which point the tensioned cable that holds the ladder up can be seen. After they climb a few floors and a cut-scene of Tremaine going up the stairs in the interior of the building, Damien is shown again climbing the fire escape stairs and the suspension cable is again visible placing him back at the bottom section.See more »

original was better, 7 May 2014
Author: fraser_reid26 from United Kingdom

I saw the original back in 2006 and absolutely loved it and its sequel. I had high expectations for this purely because I always wished they had made a third and when I saw Paul Walker was involved I had hoped this remake would be on par or better. Unfortunately I was wrong. While Brick Mansions is not a terrible film my viewing was ruined due to my love of the first one which this is almost a shot for shot copy of. My love of the French original may have set the bar too high it seems. Also my only major personal gripe is the voice dubbing of David belle. For some reason it struck a nerve with me and I could never really appreciate any scene. If you're looking for a good way to blow 2 hours or haven't seen the original by all means go see it but for myself this was just not what I had expected. Solid 6/10.
