Broken City review – With cast members consisting of Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe and Catherine Zeta-Jones, you know you are in for an awesome movie. Each of them delivers their part excellently and even the supporting cast did an awesome job! Mark in his usual to die for body playing cop/private investigator/good guy caught in a bad situation. Russell as the dirty politician while Cat Zeta Jones as a long suffering wife. No wonder you got 2 Oscar winners among these 3 main actors, with hope Mark will snag one soon!
As for the movie, it’s such a perfect time to release here what with the General Election just around the corner! Which is kinda curios coz the movie was released State-side back in January this year but it somehow it only reached here now…jeng jeng jeng…
|How come we don't have 'this' here? Would be interesting in'it?|
The story revolves around Billy, Mark’s character having to lose his job as a cop after getting involved in an ‘incident’. He arse is saved from being put in jail by the Mayor, played brilliantly by Russell (thank God he doesn’t sing in this movie!) Fast forward seven (7) years later during re-election, the Mayor seeks help from Billy who is now a Private Investigator to spy on his wife, whom he suspects is having an affair. That gets the ball rolling and where it lands is where the story gets interesting, really really interesting.
|Pick your battle wisely!|
You get to witness the inner workings and how dirty and filthy politic gets. This flick is a good reminder and thought provoking not to be missed if you are a first time voter and going to vote again soon. You will walk out making a decision on whom to vote aculi! Just remember that change is not necessarily bad if the current system does not work! If you don’t give chance to the new, you will always remain stuck with the old one. You don’t have to agree with me because this is just my opinion. Go catch this and don’t forget to excise your right when the time comes to decide your future!
