A disgraced NYPD detective after being thrust into a citywide manhunt for a cop killer, is given a shot at redemption.
"Irish director Brian Kirk takes the helm of this perfectly serviceable New York crime thriller, co-written by Adam Mervis and Matthew Michael Carnahan. Chadwick Boseman plays Detective Andre Davis, an NYPD officer who as a kid lost his cop dad to violent criminals and now has a Dirty Harry reputation when it comes to deciding on the order in which to shoot and ask questions."
"Ray (Taylor Kitsch) and his accomplice Michael (Stephan James of If Beale Street Could Talk) hope to buy and sell 30 kilos of cocaine – but arriving at the pickup point they discover 300 kilos, uncut. Panicked, they gun down the seven cops that arrive on the scene."
"Hedging its bets, the manhunt movie “21 Bridges” both flatters and reviles the police. On the one hand, its somber hero, a remorseless homicide detective named Davis (Chadwick Boseman), is the closest thing the N."
