16 Blocks ★★★ 2006 (PG-13)

Willis lets himself go to seed as alcoholic NYPD detective Jack Moseley, a burnout who's been corrupted by the job and is just waiting to collect his pension. He's assigned to transport motor-mouthed witness Eddie Bunker (Mos Def) to a grand jury hearing 16 blocks from the station. Easy—until someone starts shooting at them. Jack calls for backup only to discover that Eddie is testifying about some bad cops, including Jack's ex-partner Frank Nugent (a menacing Morse), who isn't about to let that happen. Donner directed the “Lethal Weapon” series, so he knows how to keep things moving. 105m/C DVD, Blu-ray Disc, HD DVD . US Bruce Willis, Mos Def, David Morse, Cylk Cozart, Casey Sander, David Zayas, Jenna Stern, Robert Racki; D: Richard Donner; W: Richard Wenk; C: Glen MacPherson; M: Klaus Badelt.
