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.

It tries to be a moody thriller, but cliched dialogue and too many coincidences make for a predictable and hackneyed film.
Would have made for a fine film noir 60 years ago but feels rather contrived and unbelievable in the setting of contemporary New York.
The only reason to see this dreary parade of deception and venality is Mark Wahlberg's performance as a disgraced ex-cop caught up in the thick of menacing events he can't understand. It's striking how this tightly focused actor can find his own firmly grounded reality in the falsest of surroundings.
