Family Movie Review: Brick Mansions (PG-13)

BrickMansions ChesapeakeFamilyMovieReviewKernel Rating (out of 5): whole-popcorn-kernalhalf-popcorn-kernal

MPAA Rating: PG-13        Length: 90 minutes

Age Appropriate For: 13+. Lots of violence and threats of violence, although it’s not bloody or gory: fistfights, car chases, riots, roving bands of criminals, gunfire, and the threat of an entire city being destroyed by a nuclear bomb. Also some threats of sexual violence, with one woman being held captive by another (dressed in a ridiculous leather outfit); cursing; and the presence of drugs, with one bad guy a drug kingpin who runs a factory for the stuff.

The less said about ‘Brick Mansions,’ the better. The filmmakers clearly didn’t care enough to think this movie through, so why should we?

By Roxana Hadadi

You can tell the kind of movie “Brick Mansions” wanted to be: bombastic, gonzo, unhinged. Defined by insane fight scenes but improved by complicated characters. Politically relevant, racially conscious. All those intentions manifest into a cluttered, silly film, though, one that loads on the plot elements and choppy editing to distract you from the fact that this movie is terrible.
