I was really looking forward to broken city mainly because i'm a huge mark wahlberg fan and the trailer was really good so i am happy to say that broken city did not let me down. Now i'm not say this movie is the best dramatic thriller ever but it is above average and thats why i gave it a go. The cast is beyond amazing with the likes of mark wahlberg, russell crowe and catherine zeta-jones they're really what makes this movie above average. The direction is fine i didn't think it was mind blowing but there were some parts i really liked when it came to the direction. The characters are also good but the two that i really liked were mark wahlberg's and his kind of sidekick in the movie russell crowe was decent but nothing special. Something also worth mentioning is the music i thought it went well with the movie but it wasn't special but i think it helped the movies pace. I enjoyed broken city and i'd suggest it for an above average crime drama thriller. 8/10

it was an ok movie. enjoyable, some action, good cast (nice to see Zeta Jones back) and it will be an enjoyable flick. but kind of predictable.

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.

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"!!!

I thought this movie (the storyline) was good, although a little confusing in spots. I appreciated that it was done well, without detailed graphics being done in most of the shootem-ups.
