Five Flicks in Five Clicks: January 18, 2013
Synopsis: Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe star in this pot-boiling thriller about a rule-bending cop who becomes the puppet of a corrupt New York mayor. Wahlberg gives his best “Say hi to your mother for me” tough-guy performance while Crowe chews up the scenery by cocking his head and making stern, grumbly threats. Another decidedly 90’s-esque, could-be-based-on-a-paperback-novel plotline, Broken City has assembled some fine talent for an average-seeming thriller.
