Broken City R

2013 ▪ Drama ▪ 109 Minutes

Directed by Allen Hughes. Starring Natalie Martinez, Justin Chambers, James Ransone, Griffin Dunne, and Kyle Chandler.


The mayor of New York City hires a disgraced ex-cop to identify his wife's lover, setting into motion a scandalous series of events in this post-noir thriller from director Albert Hughes (From Hell, The Book of Eli). Billy Taggart (Mark Wahlberg) was on his way to becoming one of the Big Apple's top cops when a high-profile shooting cut his promising career short. His reputation destroyed in the flash of a muzzle, Billy gets a break when the city's popular mayor (Russell Crowe) pulls some strings to ensure he doesn't serve time. Meanwhile, Billy puts his investigative skills to work as a private detective. When the mayor offers Billy $50,000 to expose his wife's infidelities, the offer is too good to pass up. But by the time the mayor reveals his true intentions, Billy is already in too deep. Now, with his freedom -- and quite possibly his life -- on the line, Billy will risk it all in a desperate bid to expose the truth, and seek redemption in a city where second chances don't come cheap. Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jeffrey Wright, and Barry Pepper co-star.

Well-shot and edited but the dialogue was awful and the plot riddled with clich├ęs.
