John & Becky’s Movie Review of Broken City

brokencityposterBecky and I went to see the new movie Broken City at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO last week.  The Fandango website at Broken City describes the movie as follows…

“n a broken city rife with injustice, ex-cop Billy Taggart (Mark Wahlberg) seeks redemption – and revenge – after being double-crossed and then framed by its most powerful figure, the mayor (Russell Crowe). Billy’s relentless pursuit of justice, matched only by his streetwise toughness, makes him an unstoppable force – and the mayor’s worst nightmare...”

The Review: Broken City is a new movie with Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe, and Catherine Zeta-Jones about a New York City Mayor who is controlling the city like a gangster.  Enter a police officer who has been relieved of his duty, working as private investigator and ends up becoming a tool for the power hungry Mayor.

There are quite a few twists in this movie, but for the most part they are predictable.  The acting is good, but the story is not great.  It’s a pretty far fetched movie and most of the confrontation between the characters is more hype than substance.  The movie is interesting at times, but it’s boring most of the time and moved a little too slow for me.  I definitely had higher expectations.

Becky liked it more than I did and I think she thought it was worth the price of admission.  I didn’t like it as much and thought it was a rental.  We went with our friends and they liked it more than I did as well.  I would recommend skipping this one and waiting for the rental to watch it.
