After you've seen the action-packed cop drama, we want you to vote for the best 21 Bridges quotes. There is an abundance of intense one liners in this hard-boiled thriller. The setting is New York City. Chadwick Boseman plays Andre Davis, a cop who's hot on the trail of two criminals who eliminated a bunch of fellow police officers. Finding them proves to be complicated, so he devises a plan in which the NYPD will shut down all the bridges into and out of the city, thereby making it somewhat more difficult for the culprits to escape. As the manhunt goes on, Davis uncovers a conspiracy unlike anything he could have imagined.

Aside from Boseman, 21 Bridges also stars J.K. Simmons, Stephan James, Taylor Kitsch, Keith David, Alexander Siddig, and Sienna Miller. The film was directed by Brian Kirk, who previously helmed episodes of Penny Dreadful, Boardwalk Empire, and Game of Thrones. Adam Mervis and Matthew Michael Carnahan wrote the screenplay. Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, are producers on the movie.

Dumb Luck Or A Setup

Andre Davis: If you were going to rob six hundred and sixty pounds of coke, do you drive a BMW two-door to the job? Would you bring just one other guy with you? Would you only take fifty kilos? So it’s either dumb luck, or a set-up.
