The new movie 21 Bridges follows an embattled NYPD detective (Chadwick Boseman) on a fascinating and thrilling journey in pursuit of two very dangerous criminals. As the night unfolds, lines become blurred on who he is pursuing, and who is in pursuit of him. When a botched robbery leads to the death of eight NYPD officers, detective Andre Davis is thrust into a citywide manhunt for a duo of cop killers, and Andre begins to uncover a massive conspiracy that links his fellow police officers to a criminal empire and he must decide who he is hunting and who is actually hunting him.
During the manhunt, when the search intensifies, extreme measures are taken to prevent the killers from escaping Manhattan as the authorities close all 21 bridges in and out of the island to prevent any entry or exit from the iconic island. Manhattan is completely locked down for the first time in its history – no exit or entry to the island including all 21 bridges, thus the name of the film.
