First Glance: “21 Bridges”

21image1

Somehow between “Black Panther” and his several appearances in the “Avengers” films Chadwick Boseman found time to make “21 Bridges”, a hard-boiled crime thriller which is co-produced by Marvel’s Russo brothers. The trailer dropped today and the film looks tough, gritty and sports a pretty interesting cast. In addition to Boseman we get J.K. Simmons, Sienna Miller and Stephan James among others.

The film follows a New York police detective (Boseman) who shuts down the 21 bridges in and out of Manhattan in order to catch a group of cop killers. But as he gets deeper into the manhunt he learns that (surprise) not everything is quite as it seems. There looks to be plenty of action and so far I’m liking the old-school police drama vibe.

“21 Bridges” hits theaters on July 12th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or giving it a pass.

  1. Played before Endgame (obvs) and it had some serious 16 Blocks, Brooklyn’s Finest, & Cop Land-vibes. I dig Chadwick Boseman’s stoicism, and I honestly think Taylor Kitsch is a capable actor with the right role.

    Judging by the monstrosity of another summer movie season, I may end up waiting on digital for this, but who knows once the reviews start pouring in.
