Sparks fly between Hollywood heavyweights Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe in this riveting thriller. Disgraced ex-cop turned private detective Billy Taggart (Mark Wahlberg) is thrown a lifeline. The Mayor of New York City Nicholas Hostetler (Russell Crowe) is set on cleaning up the apparently 'broken' city and hires the former lawman to act as his eyes on the ground. But events take an unexpected turn when Billy is hired to trail Hostetler's glamorous wife Emily (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and capture evidence of her rumoured infidelity. A seemingly straightforward assignment soon turns out to be anything but, as Billy uncovers shocking scandal. Soon he's double-crossed and betrayed by Hostetler, the most powerful man in the city. Now streetwise Billy is out for justice! A-list stars Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe bring their commanding talents to this riveting mano-a-mano thriller, one that plunges audiences into a world where loyalty and trust are built on corrupt foundations.
