'Broken City' -- 2 1/2 stars

A disgraced former cop, his character, Billy, lives with an actress (Natalie Martinez), trades banter with his Gal Friday (Alona Tal) while making a living as a private detective, hiding behind bushes with his camera.

Evidence gathered by Billy points to the campaign manager (Kyle Chandler) of the mayor's rival candidate (Barry Pepper) as the guilty party. -- Michael Phillips<br><br><a href=http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/movies/sc-mov-0116-broken-city-20130117,0,5754514.column>Read the full "Broken City" movie review</a>
