Starring Academy Award ® Nominee Mark Wahlberg, Academy Award ® Winner Russell Crowe and Academy Award ® Winner Catherine Zeta Jones, Broken City is a fast paced, action thriller.
When disgraced cop turned private detective Billy Taggart (Wahlberg) is hired by NYC’s mayor (Crowe) to tail his wife (Zeta-Jones), he uncovers a city-wide conspiracy of corruption, sex, and murder.
Producer and star Mark Wahlberg has attracted an impressive cast to Broken City, a film from director Allen Hughes. A mix of politics and crime thriller, Wahlberg himself stars as detective caught in the midst of a murky case, that brings him into the world of the Mayor of New York, played by Russell Crowe. Also in the ensemble are Catherine Zeta-Jones and the always-watchable Jeffrey Wright. When it comes to acting talent, you're not being short-changed here, and much of the fun is in watching the cast at work.
Where Broken City does stumble is in making the most of it all. For a film potentially dense in political intrigue and shady characters, it's the script that lets the side down a little. There's a real sense that there are more potent ingredients here than the final cut of the movie suggests, and that it doesn't commit hard enough to the story it's trying to tell and what it's trying to put across. That said, it's still an enjoyable movie you're getting here, that zips along and easily entertains. It's just one that doesn't fully fulfil its potential. Worth a watch, though. --Jon Foster

final third rescued it some.
the main story starts during a election campaign in which the long-term
mayor 'Nicholas Hostetler' has some catching up to do, the corrupt official
isn't to bothered how it's achieved in truth.
he hires a private eye 'Billy Taggart' who years before he had saved from
certain imprisonment on a murder charge, he offers 'Billy' 50.000 dollars
to gather evidence against his wife who he claims is having an affair,
it's a lot of money to 'Billy' right now, so he accepts the job.
however the Mayor isn't being truthful of his motives, after a killing
'Billy's' client loyalty becomes a matter of conscience, he feels he's
a superb cast-list, sadly the film struggles to hold ones attention early
on, it seems a long wait before the film becomes a whole lot more interesting,
and the plot unfolds.
In this we have him as the bad guy, he does good guy or bad guy with equal effortless skill and presence.
Mark Wahlberg I feel is an underrated actor, usually carries the tough guy and hero (or sometimes anti-hero) role convincingly I think. His comic timing in the two Ted films show another talent that he doesn't often get to use.
The story isn't earth-shattering by any means, corrupt politician plot, but the two actors do a fabulous job and I have loved it both times that I've seen it. Definitely give it a go.
