Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "Brick Mansions is the latest Luc Besson-written and produced action flick and the last film that Paul Walker finished before tragically passing away. It’s also a remake of District B13, which Besson also wrote. Unfortunately, Brick Mansions is nowhere near as good, despite its star power and updated script. Brick Mansions features some tightly-filmed Parkour action sequences that make co-star David Belle shine, but the rest of the film is jerky and flabby, oftentimes coming off as unwatchable on almost every single level. Brick Mansions does not belong in theaters and barely gets by as a five dollar bargain flick that you’d maybe pick up from Wal-Mart."
