Broken City does need fixing!


Wow! This was a heavy one to watch, one of those political thrillers where you need to pay very close attention or you won’t get what’s going on. I’m not very good at remembering character names when I’ve only just met the characters themselves, but they kept rolling them off – he did this about that and it was him who did … - you get the idea, and I was getting a little lost. They also seemed to be cramming in this information in the short time they had to get it across in the movie. I think this one would have worked better if it had been more focused on Mark Wahlberg’s detective character, Billy Taggart, and what he got up to as a detective – that would have made it much more watchable!
