Fair film fare

I went in slightly skeptical after reading mixed reviews, but felt that Wahlberg and Crowe's acting skills could make it palatable. The did! The story is surprisingly complex (and overly so at times), but the actors do pull it off and make it entertaining. Catherine zzeta Jones adds star power, however thats shout it for her character. The quality level of films falls considerably at this time of year, so you have to take that into account also, since this year's nominees are especially competitive. Worth seeing, however.

A great cast with a so so story. Crowe is underused and zeta Jones is there for window dressing. Its ok but I would wait for video.

Broken Movie

This movie had a lot of potential, with good acting and story line, but was limited by poor writing and by one thing that can make a good movie great - the music. There were also a lot of distracting technical errors and dialogs that weren't believable. 'Broken City' had the appearance of a movie made by someone who was either a novice, or someone who just didn't care very much about the final product. It's not a bad movie. Just not as good as it could have been.

Good but not great

Its a good action crime movie but its a little too slow. The plot is interesting but some of it is pointless and does not effect the main story or the character at all. For example and not spoiling anything from the plot, some of the events of between the the main character and his girlfriend or wife; you will see what I mean when you see this film. If you are into crime drama with a little action at times then check it out, but this isn't a must see movie.

Good movie, not great, but probably not ment to be. Russel Crow always plays a good role.....Les Mis to this....lol. He can do anything. If your a Mark fan go....his typical character. I liked it. My husband said wait for home viewing
