This movie was really slow and boring, its the same ol same ol, beating up people, etc. It seems like all films about New York City now are just out of line and have gone astray from making the film interesting and fun to watch. Although it shows how powerful ignorant, arrogant, and hypocritical people in power eventually fall into ruins with great humiliation, embarrassment, and distress. Fiction in movies like this are a reality in the real world now a days. Theres no escape for justice, eventually the criminal will get caught. The saying goes "you can run, but you cant hide." Two great actors (Mike Whalberg, and Russell Crowe), however this movie was pointless to watch, I was having doubts about this one before watching it. Its hardly even worth watching it just once if anything at all. The best film that I know of filmed in New York, was "The Interpreter," with Nicole Kidman and Sean Penn.

The storyline is actually well conceived. It's the screenplay that puts you to sleep. It's one of those films where there is no suspense. It tries to deliver on this upper level detective drama and it just falls flat. Waste of talent and time. Rent Contraband instead.

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.

I went to see Broken City based on the outstanding cast, especially Mark Wohlberg, Russell Crowe, and Catherine Zeta-Jones. They were wonderful. However, the picture itself was not as good as I expected. I had difficulty following parts of the story, and it did not hold together at times. However, overall it was a worthwhile experience. Not for kids - too violent.

I loved the movie...Mark Wahlberg was perfect in his role...He always plays his part realistically...Russell Crowe was perfect as the corrupt mayor, and Catherine Zeta Jones is beautiful to watch in any role she plays. The story had many twists and turns, but the audience is captured from the beginning to the end of the movie.
Perhaps they could write a sequel to this film, with Mark Wahlberg in prison....
