16 Blocks (2006)
|Source of story
||An original screenplay
||Bruce Willis, Yasiin Bey, David Morse, Jenna Stern, Casey Sander
||A desolute and alcoholic detective is given the task of getting an irritating black petty criminal to a neighbourhood court , but once on the way he finds that the job is a poisoned chalice and that the young man is a target, since if he gets to the courthouse he is due to give evidence against police corruption.
||Constant tension as the corrupt policemen attempt to eliminate the witness, resulting is gunfights, chases through a variety of buildings and a hijack of a metropolitan bus together with the passengers. Quite a bit of drinking but no sex drugs or nudity.
||This is not a typical BW film, but it is well structured and is fun. Moderately well liked by everybody, but it did not seem to have made money. If you fancy a slighty different action film this is worth your time.
