Brick Mansions (Paul Walker) | Anatomy of a Movie

In this show, AOM hosts Demetri Panos and Phil Svitek discuss the film Brick Mansions which is a 2014 French-Canadian action thriller film directed by Camille Delamarre and written by Luc Besson, Robert Mark Kamen and Bibi Naceri. It is a remake of the 2004 French film District 13. This is one of Paul Walker’s final film roles before his death on November 30, 2013. In this film, In a dystopian Detroit, abandoned brick mansions left from better times now house only the most dangerous criminals. Unable to control the crime, the police constructed a colossal containment wall around this area to protect the rest of the city. Undercover cop Damien Collier (Paul Walker) is determined to bring his father’s killer, Tremaine (RZA) to justice and every day is a battle against corruption. For Lino (David Belle), every day is a fight to live an honest life. Their paths never should have crossed, but when Tremaine kidnaps Lino’s girlfriend, Damien reluctantly accepts the help of the fearless ex-convict, and together they must stop a sinister plot to devastate the entire city. With stylized action featuring thrilling Parkour stunts (David Belle is the co-founder of this physical training discipline), “Brick Mansions” puts an entertaining twist on the action genre. The hosts discuss everything from filmography, to casting/acting, directing, cinematography, editing, score, sound editing, etc.   HELPFUL LINKS: IMDB Page – http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1430612/ Wikipedia Page – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brick_Mansions Rotten Tomatoes Rating – http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/brick_mansions/ ComingSoon.net Description – http://www.comingsoon.net/films.php?id=83629 Robert Ebert – http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/brick-mansions-2014 Cinemablend Breakdown – http://www.cinemablend.com/Brick-Mansions-6737.html Facebook Page – https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.703384556385425.1073741860.425557707501446&type=3 Ropes Of Silicon Review – http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/brick-mansions-2014-movie-review/ New York Times Review – http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/25/movies/paul-walker-stars-in-the-action-remake-brick-mansions.html?_r=0 Variety Movie Review – http://variety.com/2014/film/reviews/film-review-brick-mansions-1201162860/ USA Today Movie Review Article – http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/movies/2014/04/24/brick-mansions-review/6892439/ Huff Post Review – http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/25/paul-walker-brick-mansions_n_5211967.html Screen Rant Weekend Box Office – http://screenrant.com/brick-mansions-oculus-other-woman-box-office/ Vulture’s Interview with RZA – http://www.vulture.com/2014/04/rza-brick-mansions-paul-walker-wu-tang-clan-interview.html -Anatomy of a Movie YouTube: http://youtube.com/anatomyofamovie -Anatomy of a Movie Site: http://www.anatomyofamovie.com -Anatomy of a Movie iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/anatomy-of-a-movie/id730241106?mt=2 -Purchase Adventures of Serial Buddies: https://itunes.apple.com/us/movie/adventures-of-serial-buddies/id648123455 -Official Adventures of Serial Buddies website: http://serialbuddies.com/ -Buy Maria Menounos 1st Book: http://www.amazon.com/EveryGirl%252019s-Guide-Life-Maria-Menounos/dp/0061870781/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1393975997&sr=8-3&keywords=maria+menounos -Buy Maria Menounos 2nd Book: http://www.amazon.com/The-EveryGirls-Guide-Diet-Fitness/dp/0804177139/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1393975997&sr=8-1&keywords=maria+menounos -Catch AfterBuzz TV on Oxygen’s Chasing Maria Menounos: http://chasing-maria-menounos.oxygen.com/#fbid=Zy3WZMwj4Az -Watch Maria’s in-depth interviews on Conversations with Maria Menounos: http://conversationswithmaria.com/ Follow Us on Twitter @ http://twitter.com/movieanatomy Like Us on http://Facebook.com/AnatomyOfAMovie
