Overall, it was ok. I went away with thinking that something was missing - either there were problems with the script or with the editing. The movie could have been great with better editing. In terms of the acting, Mark Wahlberg was good, Catherine Zeta-Jones was great although I would have liked her have a larger role - because she's so good. Russell Crowe's performance was lacking and the tan was both inexplicable and distracting. Alona Tal deserves recognition for a great performance as Katy Bradshaw opposite Mark Wahlberg's Billy Taggart. Jeffrey Wright, Kyle Chandler and Barry Pepper all seemed to be miscast in their roles. The ending did seem to set things up for a sequel of some sort. Maybe they can explain all of the missing details in the sequel - where I'd like to see the chemistry between Billy Taggart and Katy Bradshaw play out.

Broken City was very slow in parts, especially making it to the climax. It was hard to keep up with all of the characters by name because they weren't explained enough or their parts were too insignificant to pay attention to. I was particularly disappointed with the ending - it definitely could've been better. The actors were played pretty well. All in all, I would recommend waiting until it comes to Redbox.

Once again, Mark Wahlberg proves himself to be one the of the most talented Hollywood actors in history. This movie was very long, but I couldn't tell because it had my full attention the entire time. He deserves an Oscar for this one.

It had just the right amount of action and suspense. It lacked development in some critical areas, but it probably would have made the movie too long and drawn out. i simply the male actors held their own by playing characters who were believable and not too over the top with their personas. Catherine Zeta-Jones was classy but witty.
