“What a tangled web we weave when we are trying to Deceive!!” “Broken City” puts an interesting twist on a “Political Thriller”.
Mark Wahlberg plays ex-cop Billy Taggert who knows there is plenty of injustice in the city. After being double-crossed by the one and only Mayor (Russell Crowe) who happens to be the most popular guy in town; Billy has his hands full trying to prove the injustice, get revenge and redemption.
Billy’s endless pursuit almost gets him killed, but that isn’t going to stop him. The story unfolds from there…
There are several agendas that play out in this movie and that is what makes it interesting. Although there is plenty of suspense and intrigue, the movie could have had a more detailed ending. There were a couple of holes left unfilled. Things are not always as they seem.
The paid critics were “Luke-warm” about “Broken City”, but I felt it was pretty good. If you like Political Suspense Thrillers, this is your movie.
