Russell Crowe, sporting the banged “Nero” look, plays the slimy, mendacious, feckless Mayor of New York City, running for re-election; it will take years to erase Crowe’s insipid performance in “Les Miserables” ; gone is the grit of “John Nash” in “A Beautiful Mind”, poignancy of “James Braddock” in “Cinderella Man” or the mettle, dignity of “The Gladiator”. Disguising his Australian accent with a tainted, New Jersey dialect, he squeezes the maximum sleaziness out of his untoward character...
The Mayor matches wits with the police commissioner; Jeffrey Wright gives a scintillating performance; the screen simmers with his presence; unfortunately their moments together are too infrequent...
TWO & 1/2 STARS!!

I pretty sure Rob Reiner was in a fight scene in Broken city. He was the one in between a father and son fight in an office space. And the rest of the movie was really good too.

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.

Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe put on an awesome performance in this suspenseful thriller. I enjoyed the twists and turns of the story and definitely label this movie as a "go see"!!!
