Synopsis


16 Blocks
A hard-drinking, hard-living cop assigned the task of transporting a small-time criminal to the nearby courthouse finds that a simple, 16-block drive can be the longest ride of his life in director Richard Donner's urban action thriller. Hung-over, has-been cop Jack Mosley (Bruce Willis) has seen better days, and all that the force expects out of him these days is to stay out of trouble while he's on the clock. Eddie Bunker (Mos Def) is set to testify before a grand jury at 10:00 a.m., and it's up to Mosely to make sure that Bunker makes it to the courthouse in one piece -- a job that Mosely estimates will take a maximum of 15 minutes. A black van has been trailing the pair unnoticed, though, and after stopping off at a nearby liquor store to pick up some breakfast, Mosely emerges from the store just in time to save Eddie from the lethal bullet of a determined assassin. When backup arrives in the form of Detective Frank Nugent (David Morse), Mosely quickly realizes that the detective on Nugent's team is the same cop that Bunker is set to testify against. Now faced with the tough task of dodging bullets and eluding a massive onslaught of corrupt cops, Mosely must keep Bunker alive long enough to get him before the judge and ensure that justice is served. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Just Plain Bad

    This movie is not worth getting on Blu Ray or on any other format. Bruce Willis is not the greatest of actors, but he is even completely unused in this movie. I don't even really remember him talking. Mos Def for some reason, another decent actor is told to use a Mike Tyson like voice for the entire movie. No clue why they did this, or in other movies I've seen he was using his unnatural voice, and the voice in this movie is how he actually talks. No clue really. The plot of this movie is to get from the police station to the court house (16 blocks). But the cops that Mos Def is testifying against are going to try and kill him before he gets there. There are all these underlying things that have happened in this movie, but you never find any of that out. You don't know exactly what was done to get these cops in trouble, and you barely find out in the end. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone. If you are a Bruce Willis and or a Mos Def fan find another movie to watch with these actors.

    In 16 Blocks Bruce Willis plays a washed out NYPD officer who is assigned to escort a criminal to a Grand Jury session only to find that his fellow cops are trying to kill the criminal because he will testify against all of them. This movie had non-stop action and suspense that kept me entertained for the whole movie. This is probably one of Bruce Willis better films. Mos Def also does a great job in one of his better films as well. I think this is a movie worth buying. Great film with action and drama.

    Knowing how talented Bruce Willis and Mos Def are I expected this movie to be good, but was shocked at how much better than expected this movie turned out to be. I have to say that Mos Def stole the show as his level of acting was much higher than other musical artist you see featured in films. This movie provided a touch of comedy, a lot of action, and decent dose of drama making for a great movie.

    I loved the story. The point of this film, to me, wasn't the crime or what it entailed but the relationship between this odd couple, forced to aid one another, at the expense of each other. It spoke well on the depravity and depression of Mosely & the optimism of Bunker. I recommend this film, I enjoyed it thoroughly. Their are also some good one-liners throughout.

    this thriller starring bruce willis is a cliched, done to death kind of movie. the story of a man who has to transport a criminal 16 blocks to a court date, but the whole way they run into problems from men who want to kill the criminal. all the same this movie was a good movie about teamwork and preserverance. on that note, I in fact would recommend this movie to a friend

    Make sure you get the DVD with the two different endings. I really liked the story with all of its twists and turns. This is an action movie with all the regular things that you would expect. What makes this movie stand out is the plot.
