Synopsis

Film fans have seen some pretty odd couples in the past, and one of the most appealing is introduced to us in this solid old school thriller - action star Bruce Willis and hip-hop hero Mos Def. Willis is a washed-up New York cop by the name of Jack Mosley, ordered to escort motormouth small time crook Eddie Bunker 16 blocks to a courtroom where he's meant to testify against a bunch of corrupt police officers. Mosley would far rather stay behind at the station before clocking off to hit the bar, but when the corrupt cops come after the likeable Bunker on his way to give evidence, Mosley's nobler instincts reawaken and he vows to protect his fast-talking companion.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
