DVD General Information
Warner Home Video
For violence, intense sequences of action, and some strong language
Detective Jack Mosley (Willis) has been assigned to escort talkative Eddie Bunker (Def) 16 Blocks to the courthouse. But Eddie isn't expected to make it to the courthouse...because a lot of cops want him dead. And after saving Eddie's life from a would-be assassin, Jack soon discovers that his partner, Frank Nugent (Morse), is one of the cops who Eddie was set to testify against. Now Jack finds himself on the line between corrupt cops and a small-time criminal who wants to change his life. This action-packed thriller stands out in a slew of ho-hum movies that are stinting the boxoffice. (Suzanne Hodges)
As with the HD DVD, the 2.35:1 DVD picture looks great, considering the stylizations to give an edgy visual texture. The picture is sharp and detailed, with rare signs of smearing. Pixel breakup is also not much of a problem for this DVD, although the HD DVD delivers a much-preferred visual experience. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #75 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because WSR is my fog lights that cut through the murk and confusion of the twists and turns of the road to home theatre. It provides clear directions and warning signs to any would-be traveler.
