Brick Mansions might be the perfect "How Did This Get Made?" movie. It is the incomprehensible English language remake of one of the greatest French action movies of all times and it features a the following delightful things, Paul Walker as an undercover cop, bad dubbing, the RZA quoting Wu Tang lyrics to explain his character motivation, a plot that makes no sense but with a serious social message, a doll making giant, a girl on girl fight, and a lot of parkour in situations where walking was a valid option. It is also anti-smoking and pro-seatbelts.
Is anybody familiar with the movie Timeline (2003), which was based on the novel by Michael Crichton and was directed by Richard Donner? Not only was this a critical (12% on Rotten Tomatoes) and a box office disaster ($43 million worldwide on a budget of $80 million), it was also the last book of Crichton's that was made to the big screen before his death in 2008. It also has a surprisingly large cast from the likes of Paul Walker, Gerard Butler, Frances O'Connor, Billy Connolly, David Thewlis, Ethan Embry, Anna Friel and Michael Sheen! It's amazing that Butler's career managed to survive before he made 300 a few years later and not even some decent actors can save this from becoming a cheesefest. Here's the trailer if you want to view it.
