It had just the right amount of action and suspense. It lacked development in some critical areas, but it probably would have made the movie too long and drawn out. i simply the male actors held their own by playing characters who were believable and not too over the top with their personas. Catherine Zeta-Jones was classy but witty.

Actaully did enjoy this film, but for some reason I could not get past Russell Crowes doo????
Although I love Catherine Zeta-Jones, I think she should have had more presence on screen.
One scene that I found to be somewhat far fetched, was on the train to Montauk when Mark Walbergh and the campaign manager have their banter back and forth, I found it unbelievable since it was supposedly such a big deal when Walbergh had his high profile trial, that this guy would not have recognized him?
Quite the cast of Great Actors, just seemed like movie was produced quickly to make a quick buck.

This film included some of my fave actors/actresses, so I had high hopes. The movie was entertaining and had some intriguing twists along the way. I felt like some of the twists didn't add enough value to the film to have been included; however, they didn't take away from the picture, either. Great performances from Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe and supporting cast.
Overall, an entertaining movie.

Broken City was very slow in parts, especially making it to the climax. It was hard to keep up with all of the characters by name because they weren't explained enough or their parts were too insignificant to pay attention to. I was particularly disappointed with the ending - it definitely could've been better. The actors were played pretty well. All in all, I would recommend waiting until it comes to Redbox.

Story line reminded us once again that government officials and politicians just can't be trusted. Mark Wahlberg did the same role as in other movies, but Russell Crowe did do a nice change by being the crooked politician. Maybe better to rent than see in theaters.
