If Brick Mansions had to be the last film Paul Walker completed, at least the role looks like a blast, judging from the just-released trailer for the action flick.

The actor — who died in a car accident at the age of 40 in November — plays Damien, an undercover detective in Detroit tasked with infiltrating a gang run by Tremaine Alexander (played by rapper RZA), in order to disable Tremaine's neutron bomb. Complicating matters is that Tremaine is ensconced deep within Brick Mansions, a housing project so dangerous that it's been walled off from the rest of the city.

Good thing Damien's partner-in-crime-fighting is Parkour expert Lino — played by David Belle, the founder of the obstacle-jumping sport, who also starred in Banlieue 13, the French film on which Brick Mansions is based.

As you might imagine, explosions, fights, car chases, gunfire, and hot women abound in the trailer.

Of course, this will likely be the second-to-last time you'll see Paul on the silver screen. The late actor filmed some of his scenes for Fast & Furious 7 — the latest installment in the franchise that made him a household name. In January, the writers and producers of the Furious series announced that they would rework the script to retire Paul's character.

How does the film strike you? Will you check it out in theaters starting April 28? Let us know in the comments below.
