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 was a little side ways going into this movie to see it, but man oh man did it turn out good! The acting from everyone in this were fantastic! It's no oscar winning performance but it's an intense thriller with twist and turns in it! I like movies that have the story line where it has you thinking that everyone is the enemy until it's really that one person at the end of it who was behind everything bad and all the pieces to the puzzle start fanning out one by one! I think Mark is getting really good at this thing. Look forget what the professional critics say! Go check it out! Its worth your buck!

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....
