Well written, but.....
I'm a huge Mark Wahlberg fan. I see about 98% of anything he puts out. He is fantastic in the movie and truly gives you nothing less than what you've expect from him as an actor. Russell Crowe was equally great in the role he played as Mayor, then again these type of roles for him in my opinion keeps him in mainstream movies.
What keeps me from making this one a "must-go", is that something about the plot felt rushed. I think there were points in the beginning and middle which could have been cut out so that the ending had a smoother closing. The beginning and middle had too much filler, but this certainly does deserve your viewing. Treat yourself to the movies and let us all know what YOU think.
