Rus­sell Crowe (groomed hair, gen­er­ous girth and groovy glasses) is the most cor­rupt mayor in New York. This pudgy pol­lie is close to pulling off the big­gest bent deal of his ca­reer. Mark Wahlberg is the last hon­est ex-cop- turned- pri­vate-in­ves­ti­ga­tor in the Big Ap­ple. He starts the movie on the mayor’s pay­roll. By the half­way mark, he’s on the mayor’s to- kill list. If you’re in­trigued in any way by this boil­er­plate premise, then you’re go­ing to be mighty thank­ful ac­tors of the cal­i­bre of Crowe and Wahlberg are there to turn up the heat when needed. Over­all, an in­dus­tri­ously aim­less thriller scur­ry­ing up and down the cor­ri­dors of power look­ing for any way out. If it is es­cape you are af­ter, best be pa­tient. Co- stars Catherine Zeta-Jones.
