I was really looking forward to broken city mainly because i'm a huge mark wahlberg fan and the trailer was really good so i am happy to say that broken city did not let me down. Now i'm not say this movie is the best dramatic thriller ever but it is above average and thats why i gave it a go. The cast is beyond amazing with the likes of mark wahlberg, russell crowe and catherine zeta-jones they're really what makes this movie above average. The direction is fine i didn't think it was mind blowing but there were some parts i really liked when it came to the direction. The characters are also good but the two that i really liked were mark wahlberg's and his kind of sidekick in the movie russell crowe was decent but nothing special. Something also worth mentioning is the music i thought it went well with the movie but it wasn't special but i think it helped the movies pace. I enjoyed broken city and i'd suggest it for an above average crime drama thriller. 8/10

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.

It was very predicatble and seemed to feed off of classic Walberg movies with a lot less action and not enough intrique to make up for it. Actors were great but the script was weak.. Directing was just above adequate.

The movie stared off way too slow and at times a bit confusing. It took an hour for some real action to kick in, but even after that it fizzled. Not worth my time, for I found myself thinking that I could have been watching something else at the theater.
