  • Another January dud. Broken City drops hot-shot actors in a quicksand of clich├ęs and watches them sink. show more

  • The only reason to see this dreary parade of deception and venality is Mark Wahlberg's performance as a disgraced ex-cop caught up in the thick of menacing events he can't understand. It's striking how this tightly focused actor can find his own firmly grounded reality in the falsest of surroundings. show more

  • Wahlberg does what Wahlberg does, bringing muscular conviction to his troubled, tough-guy role. The city may be broken, but the movie star's formula is working fine. show more

    Thought it was a pretty good movie. A lot of twists and turns, but it all makes sense in the end. Wahlberg is at his best, though Crowe has def. been better !

    Husband and I were transfixed with so many twists and turns. Will see again; good plot and acting.
