Broken City review

Corruption, scandals, and a shady business deal. These are some of the many things that go on in the new film Broken City starring Mark Wahlberg, Russel Crowe, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Kyle Chandler. So first off the movie is about a cop named Billy Taggert (Wahlberg) who is accused of murder after he kills a criminal, but gets off because of lack of evidence. Seven years later Billy Taggert is a private investigator who is trying to get by with his girlfriend. Taggert gets hired by Mayor Nicholas Hostetler (Crowe) to trail his wife who he suspects of cheating. Billy digs up a lot of dirt and then gets more than he bargained for when he finds out this wasn't really about an unfaithful wife. Broken City wasn't a great film or even a good one. But it was entertaining, and who doesn't love to see Mark Wahlberg break down doors and point a gun at people? Now if your'e looking for a really great picture, go see Django Unchained or Zero Dark Thirty, but if your'e looking for a fun movie with some cheap suspense, go see Broken City. I give it 3.4 out of 5 stars. Happy Viewing! Don't forget to follow me on Twitter @WhitsMovies and like me on Facebook at
