Broken City

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.

Broken City is Dullsville.

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.

Go See Broken City! No, Go see it!

A very solid crime thriller, with terrific performances from everyone in the cast. Lots of twists that, though at times made the plot convoluted, were no less fun and surprising in some cases. It was great to see Catherine Zeta-Jones back and in fine form, vamping it up as Hostettler's (sp?) wife. It's a very good movie. Go see it!

Another New Yorker

By Aerospace747

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.
