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).

The story goes even deeper as Andre realizes something isn’t right with the narrative being told about the murder of 8 cops. There is a dark web being spun. And it’s not by the cop killers.

Proclaimed to be dead by the Sheriff of Nottingham (Ben Mendelsohn), Robin returns to find Loxley decimated. The Sheriff is taxing citizens to the breaking point. And there’s no one standing up to the evil man.

There was quite a bit to like in the new Robin Hood movie. The action spurred the movie on. You never felt a dull moment. The characters were decently developed and I felt for Robin as he returned from battle (and death) to discover the love of his life, Marian (Eve Hewson) had moved on and started a relationship with Will Scarlet (Jamie Dornan).
