Hollywood Report Card

At its heart, this is actually an excellent film. But, as filmmakers seek to escalate the big action, believability suffers severely.

Bean Soup Times

The most high-octane action-- pyrotechnics, fisticuffs, gunplay, car crashes, back alley dashes and fire escape leaps-- ever crammed into a pressure-cooked chase lasting less than a mile.

| Original Score: 3.5/4

The action is fast paced and the story throws in a couple of twists to keep you on your toes.

El oficio del director Richard Donner convierte a este policial de rutina en un digno entretenimiento. Ni más ni menos.

Willis and Def are wonderful...Donner (Lethal Weapon) unleashes a tight, effective yarn

The story has been cobbled together from familiar elements; however, it arranges these elements in ways that are occasionally surprising, and in ways that accord nicely with Christian ideas about sin, repentance and redemption.

Richard Donner (Superman, Lethal Weapon/s) is a respected old pro who knows how to make an action movie that delivers thrills and maybe something to chew on as well.

Willis salvages what is essentially a routine thriller and elevates it to something worth watching.

A happier surprise is the smart work of director Richard Donner: 16 Blocks is all jumble and jangle-crowds, snarled traffic, and discordant car horns.

Simon Braund
Empire Magazine

A solid, bare-knuckle action-thriller from Richard Lethal Weapon Donner that avoids most of the genre's clichés and boasts a commendably dishevelled performance from Willis, as a washed-up NYPD flatfoot dissolving in self-loathing.

Fast-paced, tense and intermittently exciting, Donner's latest will keep genre fans engaged with its polished blend of tried and tested elements.

Willis has been playing slight variations on this role for years now, and though the films don't get better, his performances do.

16 Blocks can happily sit alongside Inside Man as an example of a well-made, superbly-acted, intelligent thriller. More of these, please.

Shadows on the Wall

This is such solid filmmaking that even the plot improbabilities and too-steady pace don't ruin it.

Mos Def ... truly shines. When he subtly shows us the flickers of fear licking around the edges of his funny, non-stop monologue ... he's a man in touch with a talent that should take him far.
