I watched 16 Blocks on tv the other day. I’m not sure how much I like the down and out and tired Bruce Willis over the down and out and tough as nails Bruce Willis, but it was still better than watching anything else that was on. (What? I have been sick and the holidays are boring.) I had really low expectations for the movie, but it really isn’t bad once you get past Mos Def playing his role as some sort of autistic crack head. I usually like Mos Def, but in this role he lacks the charm of both Hoffman as Raymond Babbitt and Dave Chapelle’s Tyrone Biggums.
