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.

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.

Not a bad action story with some surprises. Set in NYC involving the Mayor, a political rival and a pooh bah from the Police Dept along with a disgraced cop and the Mayor's wife. Great acting by Zeta-Jones one of Hollywood's true bombshells. She has the grace and class of Audrey Hepburn. Mark W and Russel Crowe deliver their normal journeyman performances. Seasoned actors.

Russell Crowe must have had coaching by ex Chicago Mayor Rich M Daley to be so versed in real estate deals. He was very convincing that he is actually the mayor. Might be his best speaking role. Mark Walberg is 2nd rate, one point he is very drunk then same night he is fully aware and handles someones head in the bathtub. Drama is continous, no boredom. Good ending. Waste of talent for Catherine Zeta-Jones, she should be playing lead roles. Overall very worthwhile.
