I was a little side ways going into this movie to see it, but man oh man did it turn out good! The acting from everyone in this were fantastic! It's no oscar winning performance but it's an intense thriller with twist and turns in it! I like movies that have the story line where it has you thinking that everyone is the enemy until it's really that one person at the end of it who was behind everything bad and all the pieces to the puzzle start fanning out one by one! I think Mark is getting really good at this thing. Look forget what the professional critics say! Go check it out! Its worth your buck!

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....
