21 Bridges – Action
Category – Movie
Content – When two ex-military boys are sent to a restaurant to grab 30 kilos of cocaine, they are shocked when they come across 300 kilos. As they try to escape the restaurant, a gun battle ensues and eight police officers are dead. Detective Andre Davis is called in to investigate. He can trace the two men to Manhattan, so he closes the 21 Bridges in and out of the entire area. As the investigation and pursuit of these two men go on, it appears that not everything is as it seems. Andre must figure out who is telling the truth and who isn’t, before everyone is dead and the secret gets buried forever. This movie has tons of action and gun battles, great choreographed car chases and plenty of intrigue. This is your typical action movie with suspense and plenty of unanswered questions along the way. This scores a 7 out of 10.
Acting – Chadwick Boseman definitely brought his inner Wakanda to this role, he was cool and collected. He never loses control, even when everything is crashing around him. For an action film, he does a great job. As the bad guys (or are they really?), Taylor Kitsch and Stephen James are both good, running scared to try and escape Manhattan alive. Other notable names are the always great JK Simmons and Sienna Miller, with an appearance by legend Keith David. The cast is solid. Score is 8 out of 10.
Duration – 1 hr 40 min. This movie is barely over 90 minutes, so the action and suspense flows very well. There is never a dull moment in this one, there isn’t time for slow. LOL This gets a 8 out of 10.
TOTAL INDEX for 21 Bridges – 23 out of 30.
