    A helluva lot happens in 16 Blocks - an outrageous amount, really, along with a coda that deposits the audience squarely at a movieland finale. Who knew that looking both ways before crossing is where the real action is?

    A mismatched-buddy movie that's endearing, funny and affecting in equal measure.

    Willis' performance mystifies, while Mos Def's mesmerizes.
