16 Blocks

16 quarters — the distance from the police station to the courthouse in the city of new York. 16 quarters have to overcome the police and a witness who will testify in court. COP Jack Mosley — white, middle-aged, tired, silent, almost drunken, almost corrupt, but still kept in itself and remains self-respect, and the remnants of a professional code of honor. Witness Eddie bunker — the exact opposite of Jack's black smart talker, which he is not happy that trouble, that gave him destiny. Jack and Eddie must undergo and pass a total of 16 city blocks, but how long, how dangerous, how deadly would be this way! . .

16 Blocks. The first viewing left me not a definite impression. When browsing the went to sleep not less than 4 times (and I still beer drinking is one). The film of course at half missed, but but slept great. Decided, well, to hell with him. Races fell asleep, then nothing. So forgot about it, friend told (by the case) on a fun watching movie.

But no, a friend convinced to reconsider, said adhesive film, be sure to look. I believe it. And what was to the scene falling into the bus, watch is absolutely not what. As the bus moved off, became a little more interesting, well as interesting, I stopped to curse all and Sundry.

Nothing new, interesting, exciting, I saw. The idea than to Srimati this movie, could give the budget money, well, say, charity. In the end, the film I did not like the way, even Bruce, my dear "Hard", not saved the situation. But, I noticed his character, such as and John McClane initials that is D. M. it than I remember 16 data blocks.

And as an evaluation of the film can put a solid top five for a good night's sleep.

Although there is Bruce Willis in the role of the police, and the label "Thriller" and"Thriller", it absolutely not "die hard", and in some way its antipode.

This is a very good movie... but, alas, exactly to the last dialogue of the hero Willis and the character of Morse. With the time in the film is flooded with unnecessary pathos, good-wins-slim, happyending and other symptoms mainstream American movie. It is a pity that the film promezhutochnogo finals, it can't look "exactly up to this point", which the trick can be turned, for example, "scent of a woman", well, Oh well.

Bruce here is a police-drunk, which is almost all care. Former professional level not completely drunken, but avail already no. And here he take charge of the witness, talkative Negro, to court it, cursing everything in the world, is taken for this is a routine task. Naturally, the task is very trivial, but wasn't in witness, in the affair of the local werewolves in uniform, whom the witness need very, very silent.

Most of all I brought in love that. in this film the main character is not is Superman. Usually, after what? The hero of the little gun puts one hundred enemies time and it is possible the atomic bomb sharashit — still by. Here the entire film is each bullet — bullet every wound — wound. The number of dead and wounded even for the action is minimal and each man's death is on-screen event, and when our hero got hit in the hand, it with the wound maracide to the end of the movie, its very painful worrying. Very good and conversations between Jack Mosley and his ex-partner, even though I like it used to, that Morse is good people. Very well that none the film is no love line and even more "historic kiss". Over this stamp the filmmakers even had a good laugh.

The power structure came out quite well on the opinion of a layman like me, and see how release the hostages "in normal mode" is even more interesting than the spectacle of a lone heroism in die hard.

Here with ideological content creators missed. To serious topic "can the people change," the movie seven miles to the heaven, but this topic received much attention and it looks pretty strained. Change that Jack his ward I as it is not really believed. No, could be, but not.

So —

Bruce Willis is pleasantly surprising from to the film. The actor odinnakovo convincingly looks like in the role of the old COP ("sin City", "16 blocks"), so and as subject age killer ("Lucky number Slevin").

The film itself is not might say that it is not found. Pretty well shot Thriller, about the corrupt American police nashtampovali interchange. So that the genre of the film clearly pretenduet in place in the list of the best. Yeah and generally stands out on the background of modern movies.
