“Broken City”
Mark Wahlberg plays yet another cop type (he’s an ex-cop turned PI here) but we’re not hating. He does them pretty well. Russell Crowe is the shady mayor who hires him to find out if he’s being cheated on. Review consensus: You’ve seen it before but if you like movies like this, it’s cool.

“Luv”
Common plays a former enforcer who gives his nephew an unexpected education on the streets of Baltimore in one fateful day.  With Dennis Haysbert and Danny Glover.
Review consensus: Script has some credibility issues, but Common rocks.
