An exciting film straight through with good length. Flawless in terms of logical gaps, which is not to say that it is automatically a masterpiece - where everything should fit together!

Predictable and wrongly titled but still pretty solide police drama. Thanks to the good cast and straightforward directing

21 Bridges was released just as a lot of the audience lost its stomach for hero cop narratives, but it's also of that era, since it's clear from the off that a lot of these policemen are corrupt, and even our hero - Chadwick Boseman being the main reason to watch this - is known to have an itchy trigger finger. It's the story of an impressive manhunt on Manhattan, and even if the coppers weren't crooked, their methods would still be pretty triggering. Whether being they can't abide cop killers or are covering their own crimes, they practically declare martial law without due process, and random violence is the order of the day. The particulars - Boseman, Sienna Miller, J.K. Simmons, Stephen James - all do an excellent job (I do wish Alexander Siddig would get better work as he's grown into a great screen presence, but his role here is short and shallow) and the scenes are exciting and tense when they need to be. It's just… we've seen it all before, haven't we? I mean in the movies, but you could take that another way, yeah.
