Sometimes the trailer is the best thing about a movie. Other times it doesn’t do the film justice, making it seem far more routine than it really is.
Such is the case with “Broken City,” which looks like just another urban thriller with Mark Wahlberg flexing his usual “you-talkin’-to-me?” attitude. The reality is that, while “Broken City” is hardly revolutionary, it’s a slyly entertaining cop saga that leans more heavily on acting and dialogue than gunplay and chases.
