Broken City

This movie flopped and was critically panned it seems, but I thought it was a decent political thriller/mystery. It stars Mark Wahlberg, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jeffrey Wright, and Russell Crowe, directed by one of the Hughes brothers, and I read that screenwriter was black too. Michael Beach also had a small role.

Perhaps the only down side I saw was that it was hardly original. It was about political corruption and moral compromises, and we've seen it all before. But that being said, it was well acted and the mystery was engrossing.

Plus Catherine Zeta-Jones continues to look amazing.

The movie wasn't as bloody as the Hughes brothers usual fare, however there is some violence and blood to go with the twists and turns.
