Hands On Synopsis of Broken City

By: Amily Jones


The highlight of 2012 Movie was still not over. But Kicking off 2013, there are a bevvy of movie treats for film buffs out here- one good movie Broken City.

Director of Broken City: Allen Hughes
Main Cast: Mark Wahlberg as Billy Taggart; Russell Crowe as Mayor Nicholas Hostetler
Runtime: 1 hour and 49 minutes

Broken City is a film that's loaded with big-name actors, with multiple Oscars and Golden Globes and whatnot between them. Certainly, they bring serious energy to the material. Russell Crowe swaggers broadly from scene to scene.

In Broken City, Wahlberg plays Billy, a former cop who left the force after he shot a suspect to death. (Billy claimed it was self-defense, and the courts agreed.) Now he's a low-rent private eye, taking pictures of wives cheating on their husbands, when his old buddy Mayor Hostetler (Russell Crowe) calls on him. The mayor is convinced that his wife Cathleen (Catherine Zeta-Jones) is screwing somebody else, so he hires Billy to find out fast: He's in a tough fight for reelection, and the voters go to the polls in a few days. Billy discovers that Cathleen is indeed sneaking around with another man, but, as you might imagine, everything is actually far more complicated and crooked than it first appears.

This is a complex double cross saga so keep your ears open and eyes wide. It begins with a murder in a NY project modeled after Bedford Stuyvesant. Billy Taggart (Mark Wahlberg) shoots someone who has harmed his girlfriend's sister. Taggart is cleared of all charges and manages to get clean and sober with the help of his girl friend played convincingly by Natalie Martinez. He becomes a private eye and is brought back to work for his old boss, Mayor Hostetler (Russell Crowe), to investigate some personal business for him. The Mayor is fighting a neck and neck campaign for re-election against James Valliant (Barry Pepper).

It sounds frightened for someone who hadnít seen the type of films. The movie may be kind of a mess, but it is amusing I think. I enjoyed it very much when I watched it. Because it can evokes your spirit of an old RKO flick. If you want to feel the spirit and solve the riddle, please see the film. It has the same theme of Sidney Lumet films, but with greater skill.

Of course, you can download it for your iPad from internet after some days if you have no time to see it in the cinema in this moment. But there is one format problem to solve. I often watch the movies with my iPad, so I have one advice for you. One third-party software called video converter will help you. The next step is that how can you convert avi movies to iPad.
