21 Bridges (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
If 21 Bridges had been made in the late 2000’s it would have been directed by Tony Scott, starred Denzel Washington and probably with music by Hans Zimmer.  Alas this is a film out of time, and its impact is lessened because of that.  There’s still lots to enjoy here but 21 Bridges is never afraid of being obvious (Oh look character keeps going off to make a ‘Phone Call’) and by the time the epilogue rolls around, it’s all a bit predictable and played out.  So essential no? But you fancy an old school 2000’s vibe?  Just imagine Denzel is the lead and 21 Bridges will deliver…

Best Bit: The first shoot out
