16 Blocks

This stripped-back thriller is tense stuff

TV Times - - Film Guide -

Bruce Wil­lis un­der­cuts his usual la­conic screen per­sona in this taut, gritty and stream­lined ac­tion thriller, play­ing a seedy New York cop who must trans­port petty crook Mos Def the 16 blocks from jail to court to tes­tify in a ma­jor trial. It’s all straight­for­ward un­til it be­comes ap­par­ent that the rest of the NYPD is re­luc­tant to see his ward take the stand. Thus be­gins a tense cat-and-mouse chase through back al­leys and ten­e­ments, with a few neat plot twists, too.

Dir: Richard Don­ner 2006, 12, 125min
