When Jason Statham is busy filming something else or you want your film to have a little more elegance you simply call Mark Wahlberg. He’s slowly becoming a staple name for mid-season run-of-the-mill action films. Most are forgettable, but rarely are they offensively bad. They just exist.
Allen Hughes‘ Broken City is the newest Wahlberg joint and he co-stars in it with Russell Crowe. This one looks like it might have a bigger agenda than the trailer alludes to, but I wouldn’t start getting out the magnifying glass just yet. This new trailer release is aided by some Kanye West and a montage of clips with Wahlberg bearded and beardless.
What more can you ask for?
Broken City opens on January 18th, 2013.
