In Broken City, the new crime film starring Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe that opens Friday, Crowe plays a big-city mayor, Hostetler, who hires Wahlberg, an ex-cop, to follow his wife to find out if she's cheating.

While Wahlberg, who plays New York City Police officer Billy Taggart, chases the mayor's wife, played by Catherine Zeta-Jones, bodies pile up, cars get chased and shots get fired - all the usual.

Despite the great cast, the script is thin. Two stars from Arch Campbell.
