O que se diz lá fora sobre BROKEN CITY, de Allen Hughes:
«It's pretty trashy and sometimes stupid. But there was never a moment when I wasn't entertained on one level or another.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«Hughes visual choices can feel borrowed and clichéd, but his regard for beauty often compensates for his blunders, as does the sturdy, reliable appeal of another story of good and evil, men and women, light and dark, glass and steel, sex and power. As it turns out, there are eight million and one stories in the naked city.»
Manohla Dargis, The New York Times.
«Competent but juiceless New York melodrama, an unpersuasive marriage of head-slamming action and middling civic intrigue that treats issues like gay rights and public housing as red herrings rather than actual talking points.»
Justin Chang, Variety.
«Would have made for a fine film noir 60 years ago but feels rather contrived and unbelievable in the setting of contemporary New York.»
Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter.
«The truth is that we're way past being outraged by these sorts of Crimes of the One Percent, not because they don't happen, but because the real version is so much more interesting.»
