"Brick Mansions" is the last film starring the late actor,  Paul Walker, who died in a car crash in November 2013. The movie centers on a drug infested ghetto known as the Brick Mansions, run by drug dealer, Tremaine Alexander. Paul Walker plays undercover agent, Damien Collier, who with the help of a local resident, attempts to infiltrate Brick Mansions and Tremaine Alexander's operation.

"Brick Mansions" is a complete rip off of the early 1990s film "New Jack City." "Brick Mansions" has so many similarities to "New Jack City" it should count as copyright infringement. The main character, Tremaine Alexander, even makes reference to "Curry Goat" (Jamaican food) as lead character Nino Brown did in New Jack City."

Alexander's main side kick is also a violent and abusive woman, which was the same occurrence in "New Jack City." A man was sent by the authorities to infiltrate a group of apartments in the ghetto controlled by a drug dealer in "New Jack City" which is the exact same storyline of "Brick Mansions."

"Brick Mansions" was a waste of talented actors to do a substandard rip off of a urban classic. Once again, Kabbalah Center member, Luc Besson has resorted to stealing preexisting copyrights, much like he did with the film "Lucy." Time to retire, Besson.
