Quotes And Leadership Lessons From 21 Bridges

A Reel Leadership Article

21 Bridges is a hot new release that faces some stiff competition. Released on the same weekend as Frozen 2, the sequel to the original Frozen movie, 21 Bridges has an uphill battle to win. However, if you’re able to leave the kids at home (or send them to see Frozen 2), you will be able to see a thrilling cop drama.

21 Bridges tells the story of NYPD detective Andre Davis (Chadwick Boseman from Black Panther). His world is turned upside down as a massive manhunt begins for two cop killers, Michael (Stephan James) and Ray (Taylor Kitsch).
