When people ask me about a particular movie, they don't say, "Are the performances transcendent? I can't tell you with a straight face "Broken City" is "any good," but I can make the case you'll have a good time even when the screenplay is breaking bad. You look at that cast — Oscar winners Russell Crowe and Catherine Zeta-Jones , Oscar nominee Mark Wahlberg , terrific supporting players such as Barry Pepper , Kyle Chandler , Jeffrey Wright and Griffin Dunne — and you figure at least some of these actors read the script, and thought, OK, I'll sink my teeth into this one, even if the cheese gets pretty binding at times. From a lurid plot sometimes so predictable they could have inserted subtitles issuing a spoiler alert warning of Russell Crowe's thuggishly over-the-top performance as a power-thirsty New York mayor, "Broken City" is the sworn enemy of subtle. Directed by Allen Hughes who has teamed up with his brother on films such as " Menace II Society ," " From Hell " and " The Book of Eli " , this is a big, juicy, sometimes clunky political crime thriller that plays like a 21st century B-movie. It's pretty trashy and sometimes stupid.
