Wahlberg as always, did an amazing job. Crowe was right behind him. I would have liked that they would have kept Natalie Martinez (Wahlberg's girlfriend) longer in the movie. She sort of vanished from the story mid through the movie and I was expecting to have her come back. The movie itself had a good plot but I do have to say, it really didn't have me guessing.

A very solid crime thriller, with terrific performances from everyone in the cast.
Lots of twists that, though at times made the plot convoluted, were no less fun and surprising in some cases.
It was great to see Catherine Zeta-Jones back and in fine form, vamping it up as Hostettler's (sp?) wife.
It's a very good movie. Go see it!

I consider myself a movieaholic and can be quite critical. I went into this movie having no idea what it was about or who was really in it, never saw a trailer. Man oh man, what an AWESOME flick! A nice political/murder thriller with lots of twists and turns. Love that kind of genre, gotta use your brain. Well scripted and acted, very entertaining. Totally blown away by this surprise gem!

I loved the movie...Mark Wahlberg was perfect in his role...He always plays his part realistically...Russell Crowe was perfect as the corrupt mayor, and Catherine Zeta Jones is beautiful to watch in any role she plays. The story had many twists and turns, but the audience is captured from the beginning to the end of the movie.
Perhaps they could write a sequel to this film, with Mark Wahlberg in prison....
