Broken City

 (2013)

Broken City Blu-ray delivers great video and audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

An ex-cop finds himself in over his head when he agrees to help out the mayor of New York City in this tense political thriller from director Allen Hughes. Having had to sacrifice a promising career when he was involved in a controversial shooting, tough street cop Billy Taggart (Mark Wahlberg) is spared a prison stretch by the intervention of the city's popular Mayor Nicholas Hostetler (Russell Crowe). Starting afresh as a private investigator, Billy is soon hired by Hostetler to find out if his wife (Catherine Zeta-Jones) is being unfaithful. But when her suspected lover is later found dead, Billy realises too late that the mayor's motives run deeper than expected, and that if he's to stay alive, he needs to take the fight to his opponents, risking all to reveal the truth.

For more about Broken City and the Broken City Blu-ray release, see Broken City Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Broken City Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Broken City was shot digitally with Arri Alexa HD cameras, but you'd hardly know it; most of the movie has a gritty, textured, almost film-like quality that the Blu-ray's 1080p/AVC encode captures well. There are a few darker scenes where the source noise spikes maybe a bit too intensely— taking on a more mottled look, with crushed shadows and decreased detail—but overall, the image has a satisfying aesthetic. Closeups reveal easily visible fine textures in the actors' faces and clothing—see Mark Wahlberg's stubble or Catherine Zeta-Jones' gauzy shawl—and while there are some noticeably soft wide shots, these are few and far between. Color density is strong, and the grading favors yellows and blues, with generally warm skin tones paired against cooler accents. Although contrast is usually excellent, there are the aforementioned darker sequences where black levels can seem just a little too intense. Then again, this is arguably all part of the dreary neo-noir style Hughes and cinematographer Ben Seresin are going for. I spotted no evidence of heavy digital noise reduction or edge enhancement, and there are no obvious compression or encode issues. Looks good to me.


Broken City Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

20th Century Fox has given Broken City the now-standard DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless surround treatment, which is more than capable of handling the film's fairly low-impact sound design. There are a few action-heavy scenes that are more energetic—a car crash, a fight or two or three—but the track is usually reserved and dialogue-driven. Most of the audio emerges from the front channels, but the rear speakers are called into play when needed, rendering some accurate-sounding environmental ambience—the jeers of a crowd outside the courthouse, clattering flatware in a restaurant, the tennis shoe squeaks and echoey thwacks inside a racquetball court—along with directional effects like cop car sirens. There's also a rather trippy audio sequence—with hazy, disembodied, overlapping voices—when Taggart begins drinking and goes on a night-long bender, getting into street fights and stumbling from bar to bar. Trent Reznor pal and David Fincher go-to guy Atticus Ross provides a thrumming electronic soundtrack to fill in the mix, but although it sounds good, it rarely gets the opportunity to really open up and roar. Dialogue, however, is always clear and easy to understand. The disc also includes Spanish and Italian dubs, along with English SDH, Spanish, and Italian subtitle tracks.
