If there’s one thing cops hate more than criminals, it’s cop killers. Which is what 21 Bridges is all about. Special detective Andre Davis has a knack for finding cop killers and he proves his mettle when two armed robbers murder eight police officers in one crime. Andre closes Manhattan’s 21 bridges to trap the killers on the island.
21 Bridges really shines with its casting (Sienna Miller, JK Simmons, Taylor Kitsch, Keith David). And the star, rightfully so, is Chadwick Boseman, in his final movie before his tragic death in August 2020 after battling terminal cancer.
All you need to know is neatly summed up by Glenn Kenny from rogerebert.com: “The script doesn’t seek to spin the viewer’s head with a lot of twists. Instead, it aims to keep you invested in Boseman/Davis’ own ratiocinations and the moral imperatives he attaches to each new discovery he makes. But, of course, the movie is also about standoff, shoot-outs, foot chases, car chases, and more. Which director Brian Kirk delivers in tight, economic style.”
