16 Blocks is entertaining enough, but the lack of any real momentum prevents it from becoming anything more than a mildly engaging actioner.

Detective Jack Mosley (Bruce Willis) is tasked to bring Eddie to testify against corrupt cops. The plot is revealed after more than an hour and the way Eddie talked was somewhat annoying. Action was decent and the conclusion was alright. Bruce Willis was solid. The picture could have had a better soundtrack and supporting cast. Most scenes however show the intelligence of Mosley such as the ambulance and recording his conversation with a fellow colleague. A decent thriller, 16 blocks is a worthy look.

This movie was just going through the motions. Generic to it's core.

I did not like this movie. Mos Def was the closest to comic relief this movie got. It is dull, cliched, and confusing. A bunch of times I kept thinking I'd missed a scene. There is no back-round story to the main character, which makes a lot of the scenes confusing. The story is one you might find on a season of 24. Only 24 adds suspense, and good action sequences. In this movie it's just them walking around most of the time. The only thing I liked about this movie were the performances of Bruce Willis and Mos Def. Other than that, it was a suspense-less, snore-fest, not worth your time.

"16 Blocks" by Yojimbo

An ageing, washed up detective is given the task of escorting a witness to his courtroom deposition but is intercepted by a cabal of corrupt colleagues intent on stopping them by any means necessary. Richard Donner is a veteran of the mainstream Hollywood action genre and on paper at least, the idea of combining 48 Hours with The Gauntlet seems sound enough. What made those films work however were Clint Eastwood's charisma and a liberal dose of 70s cool and the comic chemistry between its stars respectively. This film fails in both these departments. Far from charming the audience, Mos Def's incessant nasal ramblings serve only to wear on the nerves and although Donner handles the action sequences reliably enough, the plot is so lacking in imagination that it feels like its treading water...
