I thought this movie (the storyline) was good, although a little confusing in spots. I appreciated that it was done well, without detailed graphics being done in most of the shootem-ups.

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!!

Very good movie, in Mark Walberg and Russell Crow + cast, perform to an excellence that truly carried beyond expectancy. It really held your attention from start to finish; because the characters all contribute to important roles that reflected where the movie want you (audience) to go. Great!!!!!!

A left wing fairy tale about a rich mayor that is selling off city land to balance the budget and putting money in his pocket at the same time. Murderer blackmaled to help the mayor but it back fires.
