3.0 out of 5 stars "There are definitely signs everywhere"........., Aug. 16 2007
By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
`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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Ton of action in just 16 Blocks! Aug. 10 2008
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
16 Blocks is an action packed thrill ride guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seats,from the beginning to the end.
It concerns the story of a washed up old cop named Jack Mosley(Bruce Willis).This is a beaten down man,with years of run of the mill details,with a career in stall and with a drinking problem.Just as Jack is about to book off after a long night at a baby sitting job at a crime scene,he is given a surprise detail.He is to take one witness ,Eddie Bunker(Mos Def),16 Blocks from the precinct to the courthouse,as the grand jury awaits his testimony.
Before he goes too far, Jack pulls his car up to a local liquor store to grab a picker-upper and some Advil.Unbeknownst to Jack and his charge,both have been followed from the get go by assassins out to kill Eddie.While Jack is busy inside an assassin comes up to the rear window asking Eddie to put down the window but a cuffed Eddie can't comply.He pulls out his gun and a shot rings out.Jack has, by chance,come out and seen what was happening and has killed the assassin.However a remaining assasin opens up on them and they both barely manage to escape.
They take refuge in a local bar Jack frequents and a call for back up goes in.Detectives arrive led by Frank Nugent played brilliantly and coldly by actor David Morse.All seems fine until we realize these cops are not the "marines" but the bad guys.We learn Eddie is to testify against said cops but they want Jack just to look the other way as they dispose of him.Before they can carry it out Jack intervenes and both he and Eddie are on the run from the bad cops and the rest of the NYPD.
Their escape attempts take them into some of the most seedy places of New York,both low and high,with the bad cops on their heels every step of the way.
