January 4, 2020
The dialogue is pretentious, the twists are obvious and the logic of several scenes is fallacious or directly non-existent. [Full review in Spanish]

We've seen this storyline many times before and we're likely to see it many times more.

Unfortunately, despite his best efforts Chadwick Boseman's talent simply cannot turn this film into what it so desperately hopes to be... interesting.
December 10, 2019
The script is based on the cliche of the thieves from obscure pasts and opposing personalities. [Full review in Spanish]
December 6, 2019
The problem with 21 Bridges is that it wants to take a stance, but seems entirely unsure what that stance should be.
December 5, 2019
Fast-paced and confusing - it's a waste of time and talent!
December 2, 2019
Thoroughly implausible but efficiently made, [it] mov[es] briskly enough to smooth over the plot holes and absurdities.
November 30, 2019
A generic cop thriller with plot twists so obvious that they could be spotted as far back as the Cretaceous Period.
November 29, 2019
Boseman brings more depth and complexity to his role than the screenplay warrants.

21 Bridges is a movie that will almost immediately disappear, falling through the cracks as prestige pictures and holiday blockbusters fill up local screens...this is a bridge that likely won't be crossed again.
November 25, 2019
[I]t lacks the substance to make it a real must-see, carelessly giving too much away in a violent early scene in which a cocaine robbery goes horribly wrong and leaves seven of New York's finest dead.
November 25, 2019
It is nice to have a stripped-down, simple cop drama without any convoluted story elements or stupidity thrown in, but all that leaves is a drama that feels more like it was made in an assembly line rather than passionate filmmakers.
November 25, 2019
[I]t is completely forgettable, a sort of paint-by-the-numbers cop thriller punctuated by gun violence that's less gratuitous that it is aggressively loud, much like the rest of the film is aggressively bland.
November 24, 2019
Bland, predictable cop and crime clichés lacking all urgency and any of the claustrophobia that should come from its high-concept premise. Shutting down Manhattan has zero impact on anything here.
November 23, 2019
A predictable bad-guy-cops chase movie. 21 bridges are closed. It doesn't seem to be all that inconvenient for anyone. Youda thought the producers would at least explore that!
November 23, 2019
In the toothless cop caper 21 Bridges, the usually charismatic Boseman dons a tarnished badge in a cliched police procedural handcuffed by its rudimentary rhythms.
November 23, 2019
This exact story has been made a hundred times [before]... The only thing distinguishing this is the cast.
November 22, 2019
Everything about 21 Bridges...is pure counterfeit.
November 22, 2019
Even with Chadwick Boseman (who's compelling as ever) at its disposal, 21 Bridges struggles to distinguish itself from other police thrillers.
November 22, 2019
21 Bridges is a forgettable cop thriller full of missed opportunities and bland characters, which is a disappointing turnout considering just how much talent there is both onscreen and behind the camera.
