I saw this movie in the theaters a few weeks ago. If you don't have a problem with violence, than this movie isn't a big deal. Although it has some strong language for a PG-13, it has a good message and is very entertaining.
I think 16 Blocks was an excellent movie for kid's 12 and up. It was not just a action movie about killing and violence, it actually had an interesting plot, I strongly suggest people to go and see it.
16 Blocks wasn't an awful movie, but it's basically the same thing as every other cop/chase movie ever made. The whole cliched movie felt really boring because haven't we seen this all before? There were a few fleetingly thrilling scenes, but they weren't enough to save this boring thriller.
Good for kids 13+

Ok, first off, there was one use of the F-word, but if you saw the alternate ending (which should NOT be considered part of the movie) they said it again. There wasn't that much alcohol use, and it wasn't that violent. They make this movie seem worse than it is.
