Crime. Corruption. One guy playing the other, the other guy with something probably hidden up his sleeve. This has all the makings to reek of dopeness.
"Broken City" centers on a cop-turned-P.I. (Wahlberg) who is hired by the Mayor (Crowe) to find out if his wife is having an affair. When he confirms that she is, she soon turns up dead and the P.I. is drawn into a vast political conspiracy.
If this weren't enough, here are some more salacious details to get you hyped:
- Russell Crowe utters the words "Broken City" within the first 30 seconds of the trailer. This is of course, huge.
- The film also stars Catherine Zeta-Jones.
- May have been a trick of the light, but for you Wire fans, pretty sure there's a little Ziggy Sabotka sighting. I'd IMDB it, but in case I'm wrong I wouldn't be able to mention Ziggy Sobotka/that douche artist from "How to Make It In America," which would of course be unacceptable.
