The Bricklayer


  • Score: 56

    Review Date:

  • The Bricklayer struggles with its plot, but Aaron Eckhart's solid performance and decent video and audio on the Blu-ray make it a slight curiosity despite the lack of bonus features.

  • Video: 71

  • Vertical Entertainment's 1080p transfer of The Bricklayer offers solid visuals with decent fine detail and color dynamics, despite minor issues like banding and black crush in darker scenes; it performs well on small to mid-sized displays, though a 4K UHD version would be preferable.

  • Audio: 76

  • The Bricklayer's audio presentation, marked by thunderous action sequences and clear dialogue, adds to overall enjoyment with well-mixed front channel effects and Walter Mair's original score, though it could have been enhanced further with Atmos support. Includes optional English (SDH) subtitles and a downmixed lossless 2.0 track.

  • Extra: null

  • The Bricklayer Blu-Ray disappoints with its single-disc release in a standard keepcase featuring poster-themed artwork and offering no bonus features—not even a trailer.

  • Movie: 56

  • The Bricklayer, directed by Renny Harlin and starring Aaron Eckhart, delivers a lukewarm thriller with robust action scenes, decent location footage filmed in Thessaloniki, Greece, and blue-collar charm. Its solid A/V presentation on Blu-ray compensates somewhat for a mixed set of performances and a predictable plot.
