Absolutely terrible movie, lousy acting and a terrible story line. Last Marky Mark movie for me. They should be embaressed taking your ticket money from you for this dud.

Great Cast But Uninspired Roles.

My husband and I just got back from watching the matinee viewing of Broken City. Though we somewhat enjoyed it while watching, I think perhaps it was because we were anticipating the movie developing into more than it was. It is a story told a hundred times before with characters seen in countless movies. Wahlberg is a far better actor than we saw in this movie. I was unimpressed albeit mainly due to the boring character he played. Zeta-Jones' character could have been played by any actress. Neither her level of talent nor her exquisite beauty was required for her character to be adequately portrayed. Her talent was wasted. Crowe was totally unbelievable, perhaps due mostly to the ridiculous haircut his makeup artist decided was right for him. (No man with that haircut would EVER be elected mayor of ANY city. lol) Pepper. a highly underrated actor, stands alone as the only exceptional performance in the movie. Too bad he didn't have a bigger role. Wait for the DVD.

I went into this movie thinking it was going to be awesome, with some politics, decent action scenes and just an overall good movie, which it was, but these two could have done a lot better of a movie together. Great acting and an overall solid movie, but their could have been a great deal more of action, which we all like to see and are used to seeing in a Mark Wahlberg movie. I liked it and would definitely watch it again. I always tell my girlfriend that if you watch a movie and you know you want to or would watch the movie again then it was a good movie and worth your money.

I liked this film a lot. Wahlberg gives an excellent performance. This movie has a good Perry Mason type plot that keeps you guessing who is the real bad guy. I thought the director did a fine job of keeping the story moving along at a good pace. I never lost interest throughout the film; which is a major plus for me during any movie that I see. This one is well worth your time and money.

Was good action, easy to follow, middle was slow, but some parts seems contrived at the end, but good conquered evil even with consequences to those who committed crimes, so had a positive message.
