This Friday, "Broken City," the new Mark Wahlberg/Russell Crowe political thriller, opens nationwide. The tale of a low rent private detective (Wahlberg), hired by an unscrupulous mayor (Crowe) on the eve of his reelection, is awash in the kind of conspiratorial treachery and deep-seeded mysteries that always go along with movies whose central theme is political corruption.

What were you glad we included? And no, we will not mind our own business! We have to investigate all leads! Videos: »
