Whenever it features feet flying through the air, Brick Mansions is a pleasure. Asked to do anything else, it’s one stumble after another.

The thematic stuff, while well-intentioned, is also clunky, and ultimately beside the point. Action, obviously, is what you’re after.

It's fun to watch at first. All that twirling and sliding is a nice change of pace from the usual seat-shaking pyrotechnics.

The parkour is breathtaking and the plot twists are off-the-charts ridiculous.

Slightly better than The Conselor

Paula was alive in it, so it had that going for it. That's pretty much it. They took a decent cast line up and stuck them with lines that would render any actors talents useless....
