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.

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.
