RUSSELL CROWE PLAYS A TAINTED NEW YORK CITY MAYOR IN THIS EXTREMELY AVERAGE FILM.

Russell Crowe, sporting the banged “Nero” look, plays the slimy, mendacious, feckless Mayor of New York City, running for re-election; it will take years to erase Crowe’s insipid performance in “Les Miserables” ; gone is the grit of “John Nash” in “A Beautiful Mind”, poignancy of “James Braddock” in “Cinderella Man” or the mettle, dignity of “The Gladiator”. Disguising his Australian accent with a tainted, New Jersey dialect, he squeezes the maximum sleaziness out of his untoward character... The Mayor matches wits with the police commissioner; Jeffrey Wright gives a scintillating performance; the screen simmers with his presence; unfortunately their moments together are too infrequent... TWO & 1/2 STARS!! ***For full review please visit peneflix(dot)com!!!

Absolutely terrible movie, lousy acting and a terrible story line. Last Marky Mark movie for me. They should be embaressed taking your ticket money from you for this dud.

I liked this film a lot. Wahlberg gives an excellent performance. This movie has a good Perry Mason type plot that keeps you guessing who is the real bad guy. I thought the director did a fine job of keeping the story moving along at a good pace. I never lost interest throughout the film; which is a major plus for me during any movie that I see. This one is well worth your time and money.

Was good action, easy to follow, middle was slow, but some parts seems contrived at the end, but good conquered evil even with consequences to those who committed crimes, so had a positive message.

Nothing in this movie was surprising. You knew how it would end and took a twist or two to get there, but other than that it was kind of bla. Probably worth a Redbox rental if there is nothing else on your DVR
