16 Blocks

(USA/Germany, 2006, 102 minutes)

A burned-out, alcoholic cop is assigned to transport a prisoner to the court, but finds his charge being hunted down by corrupt cops that want to eliminate him before he testifies against them. Taut, impressively scripted and handled urban thriller that makes good use of its limited setting and timeframe, featuring a stellar, against-type lead performance.
