BRUCE Willis returns to the big screen this week in 16 Blocks, playing a burnt-out detective assigned a seemingly simple task. Eddie Bunker (Mos Def), a petty criminal with a sunny outlook on life, is set to testify before a grand jury at 10am and needs to be taken from the lock-up to the courthouse, 16 blocks away. It should take Jack Mosley (Willis) 15 minutes to drop him off at the courthouse and get home.However, along the way Jack learns that the man is supposed to testify against Mosley's colleagues, and the entire New York Police Department wants him dead. Mosley must choose between loyalty to his colleagues and protecting his witness, and never has such a short distance seemed so long.
