 Richard Donner

Writer:

 Richard Wenk

For the first adrenaline-spiked hour of his action flick "16 Blocks," the filmmaker Richard Donner brings back the 1980's in high-concept style. But if Mr. Donner's presence suggests that "16 Blocks" is a throwback to the 1980's, so too does one of the names holding pride of place above the title, Bruce Willis. As Jack Mosley, a broken-down New York detective with a paunch and a sickly gray pallor, the star of the "Die Hard" franchise turns out to be ready to work, not sneer and wisecrack. Mr. Willis has always been an acquired taste, but for those who did acquire that taste, riding shotgun on his good times and bad, it's a pleasure to see him doing what comes naturally. Which means holding a gun and fending off bad guys with as few words as possible. Over the course of a generally tight 105 minutes, Mr. Donner and the screenwriter Richard Mr. Wenk unleash fleets of bad cops, rumpled heavies right out of a Sidney Lumet movie, and stage an enjoyably chaotic chase with a bus that tips "16 Blocks" owes its largest debt to Clint Eastwood's thriller "The Gauntlet."
