Broken City

Proof Can Be a Powerful Weapon.


Broken City
In a broken city rife with injustice, an ex-cop seeks redemption and revenge after being double-crossed and then framed by its most powerful figure, the mayor. The cop's pursuit of justice, matched only by his streetwise toughness, makes him an unstoppable force and the mayor's worst nightmare. The critics, however, were not impressed.

ScreenIt
T. Durgin quote iconIf the flick is on cable one rainy, flu-ravaged afternoon at your house, this will hold your interest for the most part. But don't be surprised afterwards if you don't mutter, ''I'm really glad I didn't f*cking pay to see that one.''
