Broken City Movie Review

Ratings:2.5/5  Review By: Renuka Vyavahare  Site: Times Of India (TOI)

Broken City begins brilliantly. The plot keeps you engaged with its twists and turns, making the story look like an action-packed suspense thriller. The build-up is superb. It convinces you to expect an equally gripping second half. Unfortunately, that is where the film runs out of steam and takes up a convenient, cliched twist which leads to an unappealing climax. The complex web of mysterious events gets unraveled way too easily. Broken City had the potential to be this dark crime thriller as it involves dangerous secret investigation and murder. The inclusion of politics makes it pale and predictable. If political dramas are your thing, watch The Ides of March (2011) instead!

Broken City is a vehicle for Wahlberg, who is also the producer, in another wronged former cop-with-a-golden heart role. But with Crowe as the dirty politician, it is he who deliciously walks away with this film. With the three solid actors and with Jeffrey Wright as the police commissioner, Broken City looks often at the verge of breaking away and surprising us. But just at the verge. Perhaps it was just too ambitious to term New York broken over this.

Ratings:2.5/5  Review By: Avneet Ghai  Site: BookmyShow

From a firm grip on the story in the start to the script going nuts with too much coincidence and improbability, Billy says it all with, “Will someone tell me what’s going on here?” Sad ‘cause with such stellar cast, all gung-ho for action, the film just doesn’t take off. Dialogues are clichéd for the most part. A cynical thriller about government corruption that makes its audience cynics! Verdict: Tries too hard to get heavy about politics. Just a nice cast won’t crack it.
