Wahlberg as always, did an amazing job. Crowe was right behind him. I would have liked that they would have kept Natalie Martinez (Wahlberg's girlfriend) longer in the movie. She sort of vanished from the story mid through the movie and I was expecting to have her come back. The movie itself had a good plot but I do have to say, it really didn't have me guessing.

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.

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.

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.
