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.

Synopsis

An aging cop is assigned the ordinary task of escorting a fast-talking witness from police custody to a courthouse. There are: however, forces at work trying to prevent them from making it.

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.

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.

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.

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.

`16 Blocks' is a kind of movie you can really only watch once and even at that you'll be correctly guessing what happens next as it goes through loads of familiar developments with a lot of unsubtle foreshadowing. I'm surprised that Richard Donner managed to make a film so tepid because he is really great in doing action/thrillers.

Bruce Willis does what he does best. He plays a downbeat, alcoholic cop who is talked into transporting a witness Mos Def to the courthouse to testify against dirty cops. Mos Def delivers an outstanding performance in this movie, but there are times he would drive you crazy due to his constant rambling, but he does adds a lot of depth to his character and to the movie as a whole. In return, the viewers are able to sympathize with him.

Since the film runs 102 minutes and they have 118 minutes to get to the courthouse, it's not strictly in real time. But it did very much remind me of `Phone Booth' in terms of brisk pacing and bustling New York backdrop. A suspension of disbelief is seriously required as a few completely implausible things happen regarding this movie. There are really clever twists and thoughtful turns, but, when push comes to shove, there's nothing better in this film than ones that Bruce has done many times before. And we've seen him in more dire straits than these.

Thankfully both main actors stay into character, so that the unexpected ending fits into the movie without jarring the mood of the piece. The mood is just like Willis's character: dark, weary, and dispassionate. It is, in the end, a movie that focuses on character rather than action. Just when I thought that the movie was going to have me accepting the epiphany as a typical Hollywood cliché, it offers an explanation that is quite believable.
