16 Blocks, starring Bruce Willis, is an action film about a washed-up policeman, played by Willis, and a prisoner he is transporting to the courthouse who is going to testify against other cops in a police corruption trial in New York City.
The film is action-packed mostly in the race to get to the courthouse in time, as they are followed by the "bad" policemen who want to kill the witness without killing Willis. The acting by Willis as an average cop who drinks is believable. The movie, however, is a little hard to follow because a number of scenes are not tied together well. The dialogue is okay, but the script is very weak. We give 16 Blocks — the distance Willis has to travel to the courthouse — one and a half tennis balls.
