Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe put on an awesome performance in this suspenseful thriller. I enjoyed the twists and turns of the story and definitely label this movie as a "go see"!!!

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!!

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.

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.
