Damien and Leito return to District 13 on a mission to bring peace to the troubled sector that is controlled by five different gang bosses, before the city's secret services take drastic measures to solve the problem.
In a future where Detroit's most dangerous criminals occupy the city's deserted brick mansions, an undercover cop joins forces with an ex-convict to defeat the notorious drug kingpin who has taken the mayor hostage. Detroit has fallen to crime, and in an effort to contain it, authorities have sealed up the inner city with a massive wall. Once you're inside, you never get out.

It might and might not be Vin Diesel thats dubbing David Belles (Lino) voice, but looking closely throughout the film. Davids lips sometimes don't match what is being said and sometimes don't even move, so someone has dubbed over Davids voice. See more »

Brick Masons is a film centered around a project complex within Detroit. As the Mayor pursues advancement of his city the mere existence of this project impedes his plans. Thus begins a wild ride that none of the players involved could have ever predicted. The film is a quality feature with a lot of intense scenes some of which may not be suitable for children and early teens. The drug related content of this film is relatively high however it is done tactfully. All and all I think Paul Walker's acting in this film is consistent to what you have come to expect from him. The film is fast paced and action packed with plenty of hand to hand combat scenes and high speed driving. A movie like this does much justice to Paul Walkers legacy as it speaks well of the roles he was known to play. The ending of the film is quite light with the major point of conflict solved in a twisted sort of way. It really is a shame that Paul Walker passed as I would have liked to see more of this content outside of the Fast and the Furious franchise. A+ all around.
