21 Bridges (2019)



Critic Consensus: 21 Bridges covers its beat competently enough, but given its impressive cast, this cop thriller should be more arresting than it is.

Critic Reviews for 21 Bridges

All Critics (134) | Top Critics (28)

The problem with 21 Bridges is that it wants to take a stance, but seems entirely unsure what that stance should be.

December 6, 2019 | Rating: 2/5

There are topical moments here as the film toys with public perceptions of US police brutality. And Boseman proves, yet again, to be an easy leading man whose default setting is somewhere between smouldering interiority and outright charm.

November 25, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

There's a pulpy, comic-book noir to this highly enjoyable thriller, whose rules and parameters are clear.

November 24, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Everything about 21 Bridges...is pure counterfeit.

November 22, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

It's the kind of role Gary Cooper used to play, albeit in a dusty Western town rather than gritty New York.

November 22, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A high-concept thriller with a ticking clock and a killer premise, though it doesn't totally deliver on that promise.

November 22, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
