Story


Billy Taggart (Mark Wahlberg) has a promising career as a New York City cop until the night he is involved in a controversial shooting. Stripped of his badge, but kept out of jail by New York's popular Mayor (Russell Crowe), he re-makes himself as a private investigator.

Times are tough, and when the mayor offers Billy $50,000 to investigate the First Lady's (Catherine Zeta Jones) extra-marital activities, it seems like a straight forward payday. Unfortunately, it quickly becomes apparent that the Mayor is not at all what he seems, and for Billy to achieve redemption he will have to risk everything - possibly even his freedom.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..whether the core flaw lies in the script or is the result of overly aggressive editing, the final result is offers only sporadic glimpses of the compelling thriller Broken City fails to evolve into..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..blandly made and quickly forgotten thrillers..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
“..Crowe is the best thing in Allen Hughes's cluttered, formulaic thriller, which is to say he's enjoyably terrible..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
