Critic Reviews of "16 Blocks"New York Magazine/VultureMay 12, 2006
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.Time OutMay 06, 2006
Clunky, solid, enjoyable.Rolling StoneMarch 09, 2006
Willis and Def -- funny even if he overdoes the whiny shrieking -- are a terrific team.Ebert & RoeperMarch 06, 2006
I thought this film is one long corny cliché.Seattle TimesMarch 03, 2006
Hiding among all the uniforms and bullets, it turns out, is an actors' movie, and two actors more than capable of hitting their marks.San Francisco ChronicleMarch 03, 2006
Another urban action thriller that's better than some, worse than most and so forgettable that it's possible to forget it while watching it.Seanax.comApril 22, 2016
It's a satisfying piece of genre filmmaking and an underrated American crime story...ComingSoon.netMarch 03, 2011
Told in nearly real-time 16 Blocks stops and starts, putting in buffers for decent character moments between Jack and Eddie. It's necessary to understand why they do what they do, but it makes what they're doing occasionally dull.Matt's Movie ReviewsJuly 06, 2010
16 Blocks is a good watch thanks to the performances of Bruce Willis and Mos Def.CinePassionAugust 30, 2009
B-movie done with shrewd aplombHollywood Report CardAugust 20, 2007
At its heart, this is actually an excellent film. But, as filmmakers seek to escalate the big action, believability suffers severely.UGOMarch 24, 2007
There's a fine line between old-fashioned and cliched.
