Plot: In a city rife with injustice, ex-cop Billy Taggart seeks redemption and revenge after being double-crossed and then framed by its most powerful figure: Mayor Nicholas Hostetler. Runtime: 109 mins Release Date: 17 Jan 2013
Time to square the debt-Billy Taggart. That line is sticking with me. I went in watching this movie expecting something solid and it went well beyond. Anything done by a Hughes brother is usually amazing. I was not sure how well they would work apart, but this was a knock out of the park for Allen! The level of expertise and professionalism was 10 out of 10. Acting is superb which is needed for drama and usually not carried out properly, but I never felt pulled out of the film by any acting or plot turns. Without giving anything away I do want to say I thought I had the film figured out and <more>
realized it was only half way through which let me know I had barely figured anything out. The tailspin of events that wrap up the story were borderline perfect. It has the grit of the action movies my father watched with me as a kid but it also has this layer of a complex drama. It is a strange mix that works in wondrous ways. This might be on my shelf of favorites for a while if not for good.
The Mayor Russell Crowe of New York, who pretty much has everything in his back pocket, hires a private detective Mark Wahlberg who was once a cop, but was fired because of a scandalous shooting incident. He hires him to follow his wife Catherine Zeta Jones in suspecting that she is cheating on him, but what is gonna be discovered, is more than meets the eye.This movie kind of drags in the first part, but surprisingly picks up in the second part. Crowe and Wahlberg do give descent performances, so does Catherine Zeta Jones and Barry Pepper. It an alright thriller, nothing beyond greatness, <more>
but still entertaining, although in spots it could have better, but still deserves an 8/10.
The city that never sleeps, New York is full of activity and noise. One night officer Billy Taggart Mark Wahlberg is caught up in a shooting incident. He is cleared of all charges and moves on to become a private eye. He is living a solid life and moved on until he is brought back by his old boss, and Mayor Hostetler Russell Crowe to look into some personal business as he is fighting a neck and neck campaign for re- election. The Mayor is popular, has a beautiful wife Cathleen Hostetler Catherine Zeta-Jones , and a good track record, seems to be on top of his game until his challengers <more>
decides to play hard ball and rattle the campaign. This movie is fast moving and suspenseful, where you get to see the blurred lines between the good and bad guys. Lots of good dark scenes with fast moving action, the talented cast makes for a suspense filled tale. Movie star actor Mark Wahlberg made an appearance at a sneak peek in Atlanta at Atlantic Station, shared with me that "he loves Atlanta and looks forward to working here." A remarkable biography himself, Wahlberg embodies how you can remake yourself no matter what circumstances you are in. He was all smiles and worked the crowd with a friendly disposition.
Clearly, I am at odds with a number of reviewers as I loved this movie, with all its twists and turns some predictable and with some very great actors. Mark Wahlberg, who is growing in strength with every film, has the lead and does not put a foot wrong, Russell Crowe has a great time as the crooked Mayor, Catherine Zeta Jones in a smaller role looks absolutely gorgeous, while the supporting cast are excellent. One needs to pay very close attention to understand exactly what is happening, but it is always enthralling and fast-moving. There is a great car chase that is in keeping with all <more>
the other action this movie provides, with the last 15 minutes extremely suspenseful. Go see it, as it really needs the big screen to do it justice.
