Broken City

Director Allen Hughes’ Broken City is a broken movie; a waste of good actors and a waste of your time.

When you start with a weak script like this one by Writer Brian Tucker and add a Sound Department that may have been trying to cover up that fact by producing a fairly muted voice track like this film’s, then even talent the likes of Catherine Zeta-Jones, Russell Crowe, Mark Wahlberg and Jeffrey Wright won’t be able to salvage the effort…as was the case here.

The only thing Broken City has going for itself is the scenes with Catherine Zeta-Jones and those of newcomer Alona Tal, who I look forward to seeing in something worthy of her talents.

I give this poor start to the weekend a 1+ out of 5 with the + being a nod to the two ladies.
