One of the final films of the late Paul Walker arrives, courtesy of the Luc Besson action factory (Besson co-wrote the script with Bibi Naceri and turned things over to Last Call director Camille Delamarre). It finds Walker as a Detroit cop who teams up with an ex-con (David Belle) to take down a crime lord (RZA) hiding behind a fortified containment wall. Think The Raid meets Dredd with some fast car hijinks to appeal to Walker’s fan base, although Brick Mansions looks like it will lack the requisite furiousness to make it a real hit. Opens wide April 25. (R) Not screened in time for review
