Product Description

Action starring Bruce Willis. Aging cop Jack Mosley (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 10am, and it's up to Mosley to make sure that Bunker makes it to the courthouse in one piece, a job that Mosley estimates will take a maximum of 15 minutes. However, a black van has been trailing the pair and after stopping off at a nearby liquor store to pick up some breakfast, Mosley 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), Mosley quickly realises 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, Mosley must keep Bunker alive long enough to get him before the judge and ensure that justice is served.

4.0 out of 5 stars 16 Blocks - a review 6 Aug 2006
By J. D. Naylor TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
In my opinion a pretty decent thriller with Willis giving one of his better performances of recent years.The story takes place in New York with Willis transporting a prisoner the "16 Blocks" to get him to his court hearing.Given the relatively restricted location the film makers have done a decent job of constructing a plot that isn't insulting and obvious and have coaxed good performances out of a weary looking Willis and a cool mean looking David Morse as Willis's adversary.The plot development and it's little twists and turns come fairly evenly paced to keep you interested with a couple of those "there's no way he can get out of this one scenarios" to ratchet up the suspense factor.All in all a pretty decent thriller that deserved more of a fanfare on it's release and should hve earned Willis a little credit for his acting skills for once.

Enjoyable stuff.

3.0 out of 5 stars Somethings missing... 5 Sep 2006
By Adam VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
16 BLocks isn't a rubbish film, I have to admit that before I continue with this review. The acting was good, and the story wasn't that bad but boy, was it slow. It started off at a normal pace. A bit of gunfire, a few laughs, first impressions of different characters. But suddenly it just went. The whole atmosphere that had been around in the first 30 minutes suddenly vanished and the next hour or so was really boring. And I don't know why?! Bruce Willis and Mos Def worked really well together and the story was going somewhere but I found it just got to a point where I was looking out the window, thinking of other things and not paying attention because it had got to the point where it was really, really slow and dull. Now I like Bruce Willis and I am a fan of edge of your seat thrillers but this one didn't do it for me. As I said before, not a bad film but to slow and boring for my liking.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK - but lacks that little something 28 Jun 2006
By John Kimble VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
16 Blocks stars Bruce Willis as an aging alcoholic cop who is responsible for transporting a key prosecution witness (Mos Def) the 16 blocks across town to the city courthouse.

However this is no ordinary witness and this is no ordinary ride across town. The witness has turned states evidence and his testimony will result in the uncovering of police corruption which will go right to the heart of the force.

The only thing standing in the way of the dirty cops getting to the witness is a broken down boozing cop who is over come with responsibility when his last shred of pride comes to the surface as he gets to know his infectious would be partner.

16 Blocks is the typical Willis format, but would we have it any other way? Indeed he slips quite easily into his character and delivers quite a good performance.

However it is not all about guns and explosions and as it goes along there is quite a bit of depth added to the movie but it always just lacks that 'something' to move it on to the next level.

Overall the movie isn't a total disappointment or an over whelming success. The only problem is when the action does kick in and the one liners are delivered you know you have heard or seen it somewhere else before, only it was better the last time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Donner Ke-flab 19 Mar 2007
By Johnentwistlespout VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This is essentially a remake of Clint Eastward's "The Gauntlet"..difficult to think of anything specific to say about it aside from that, in fact I'm finding it very difficult to work up the enthusiasm to write this review...it's not that "16 Blocks" is a bad film, but it is a very average one. Bruce Willis' attempts to portray a burnt out, alcoholic detective are reasonably successful but I would have preferred to have seen him in John McClane mode, and I think that would have also worked better in the film and made the Mos Def "buddy" thang work better also (by the way, it is true that Mos Def is rendered practically unintelligible with his mumbling character but I still thought he was great - see his cameo in "The Woodsman" to see how great he can be). At the end of the day this is a very modest Richard Donner film and an average Bruce Willis one, it's OK for a saturday night but you'll have forgotten it by Monday morning.

4.0 out of 5 stars Willis raised his game for this one...again 23 May 2013
By Mr. S. Storey TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This taught little thriller is bereft of the explosive action we've come to expect from a Willis movie and it's all the better for it. From time to time Willis lets the mask slip to reveal he's actually an actor masquerading as an action star; this is one of those times. The simple set up involves a washed up alcoholic cop Jack Mosley (Willis) pulling an easy prisoner escort duty, unknown to him though, other cops have his prisoner in their sights and the 16 Block run to the courthouse turns into the proverbial cat and mouse chase. David Morse effortlessly plays the villian of the piece, he's like a pit prop to any movie, honestly, he could read a menu and I'd listen, but the real revelation is Mos Def, his cowering, bullied, sensitive, seemingly low brow persona is a tour de force performance. There's a moment in the movie when they get cornered, the odds seem hopeless and it's time for Mosley to pick a side, the cops taunt him with booze and promises of a better future in the department, you desperately want Mosley to step up and do his duty, to regain some self respect and remember why he became a cop in the first place. I really enjoyed seeing the ageing, underestimated Mosley outsmart and outshoot the smug, self righteous bad guys. There's a bit of schmalts at the end but ahh who cares.
