Overview

A hard-drinking, hard-living cop assigned the task of transporting a small-time criminal to the nearby courthouse finds that a simple, 16-block drive can be the longest ride of his life in director Richard Donner's urban action thriller. Hung-over, has-been cop Jack Mosley Bruce 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 10:00 a.m., and it's up to Mosely to make sure that Bunker makes it to the courthouse in one piece -- a job that Mosely estimates will take a maximum of 15 minutes. A black van has been trailing the pair unnoticed, though, and after stopping off at a nearby liquor store to pick up some breakfast, Mosely 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, Mosely quickly realizes 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, Mosely must keep Bunker alive long enough to get him before the judge and ensure that justice is served.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
A straightforward if unacknowledged reworking of Clint Eastwood's The Gauntlet, this stripped-down thriller boasts taut direction from veteran action-filmmaker Richard Donner and exceptionally fine performances by its star duo, Bruce Willis and Mos Def. It only takes a few minutes to establish the premise: Aging, world-weary cop Jack Mosley (Willis) draws the short straw at his precinct and is assigned to transport motor-mouthed street punk Eddie Bunker (Def) to the D.A.'s office. But what should be a short, easy trip turns into a firestorm for Jack when crooked cops headed by his ex-partner, Frank Nugent (David Morse), go all out to make sure Eddie never reaches his destination. Obviously, this prisoner knows something that can bring them all down; Jack is thus torn between discharging his duty honorably and giving Eddie up. There's no real nuance to the story, although Donner and the screenwriters toss in a last-reel complication that somewhat alters the complexion of Jack's dilemma. It's rare in a fast-moving film like this for the acting to overshadow the action, but Willis -- having finally aged into this type of role -- is terrific as the jaded cop. His trademark smirk, once indicative of youthful insouciance, now effectively reflects cynicism and irony. His ensemble cohorts, Morse and Mos Def, also contribute riveting performances. This combustible combination of talents turns 16 Blocks into a tough, terse, two-fisted entertainment that's guaranteed to please fans of gritty cop thrillers.
All Movie Guide
16 Blocks showcases director Richard Donner and star Bruce Willis at their best, lending their old-fashioned Hollywood talent to a popcorn-movie thriller that offers enough texture and emotion to help it stand out from the pack. Richard Wenk's script offers a familiar thriller premise and one that owes a few of its plot points to The Gauntlet but he gives it a fresh spin through rich characterizations and snappy dialogue. Better yet, he and Donner use its New York locale as a character in and of itself. However, the two elements that truly hold 16 Blocks together are its two lead performances; Willismanages to hit the right blend of movie-star machismo and world-weariness as the aging cop hero and Mos Def is a loquacious delight as the small-time con determined to change his way of thinking . David Morse also lends find support as Willis' steely, deeply hypocritical nemesis. The end result might be a little too pat for some viewers, but 16 Blocks offers fine escapist fare to any viewer who wants a good, old fashioned Hollywood thriller.

    A Fast-Paced Thriller That Hits The Jackpot!

    When I first seen this film, I didn't know what to expect, but after it was over, I couldn't believe that this was overlooked at the box office. Richard Donner proves to still be at the top of his directing form. Bruce Willis gave one of his best performances that make you forget some of his more recent films. Mos Def really suprised me with his remarkable role as the center of the film. David Morse is always great, and he should be given more leading roles, because he is an amazing actor.

    Unexpectedly Outstanding!

    The film 16 Blocks is a story about a New York cop named Jack Mosley (Bruce Willis) who must escort a loud mouthed witness named Eddie Bunker (Mos Def) 16 blocks to his court hearing. Upon first hearing the description of this movie I was admittedly not very interested. The idea seemed very frivolous and a little cliché. After watching the film I was impressed with all of the action and the many turns of events that kept the viewer guessing through the entire movie. Bruce Willis’ character Jack is very cunning for an alcoholic and Mos Def’s character Eddie really does receive a fair amount of sympathy from the audience even though his voice is a bit annoying. This film not only has a great message, but it was also presented in a suspenseful and interesting fashion unlike many other movies that have recently hit the big screen.

    Enjoyable film

    I really enjoyed this movie. It was fast-paced and funny and even sad at times. Mos Def is hysterical and Bruce Willis just gets better and better. Definitely worth your time.

    Awesome!

    This movie rules! Bruse Willis has never done anything like this. No SAVING THE WORLD. Bruce is actually an out of shape confused cop. Mos Def is also a very good actor to watch. See this. It's definatley one of the better action movies I've seen in a while.

    Definitely worth a viewing

    I was impressed with Bruce Willis in this film as it wasn't about the action driving the story and all about the character. Add in Mos Def and David Morse you have a definite ensemble cast. I was a little confused by the ending and felt that should have been explored more, but otherwise felt it was an enjoyable film and was happy to see Donner back in the director's chair.

    Great film!

    Bruce Willis is almost unrecognizable as the over-weight cop. Mos Def is hilarious and his character is loveable. David Morse is excellent, as usual. Fun movie, you laugh, you cry and you're on the edge of your seat.

    This ain't it

    Bruce Willis is always good and this role is no exception to that rule. BUT....this movie drags and drags, and on top of that Mos Def is NOT FUNNY. He tries to be funny, but it just doesn't work out at all and just adds to this already bad movie. Thumbs down.
