I was a fan of the original Spencer for hire series on TV. Seeing that Mark Wahlberg was raised in the Boston area this is a just right fit for him.Having grown up in many different cities, including the Boston area , this movie brings a lot of memories back. Wahlberg brings his unique sarcasm, wit and physical presence to the role. Although it is somewhat different than the series, it is a good PI movie that you will enjoy. The thing that people have to remember is that you have to judge movies based on categories. This will never win an Academy award, but I would not compare it to titanic or pretty woman because that's not the type of movie it is. This is an action, comedy, and some what of a mystery. If you're looking for a good action movie with unique personalities and some comedy thrown in, this is your movie, enjoy.

The Synopsis for Spenser Confidential (2020) 1080p
Spenser (Mark Wahlberg) - an ex-cop better known for making trouble than solving it - just got out of prison and is leaving Boston for good. But first he gets roped into helping his old boxing coach and mentor, Henry (Alan Arkin), with a promising amateur. That's Hawk (Winston Duke), a brash, no-nonsense MMA fighter convinced he'll be a tougher opponent than Spenser ever was. When two of Spenser's former colleagues turn up murdered, he recruits Hawk and his foul-mouthed ex-girlfriend, Cissy (Iliza Shlesinger), to help him investigate and bring the culprits to justice. From director Peter Berg, SPENSER CONFIDENTIAL is an action-comedy co-starring Bokeem Woodbine, Marc Maron and Austin Post. Inspired by Robert B. Parker's Wonderland, a best-selling novel by Ace Atkins.

A GOOD P.I. MOVIE!Reviewed byclarkishomeVote: 7/10
First off, the soundtrack/incidental music really annoyed me, lots of cheesy prog rock and guitar solos, then the odd gem of a track dropped in that bamboozled me.Secondly, the background of the story and characters was so way out of the park that you kind of know this could never really happen, far too many lucky coincidences and knowing the right people so you stop believing the story.BUT... I enjoyed it, this is Mark being Mark, the hero. Kevin Costner Mk 2 without the cinematic panache.Watch it, enjoy it, and move on. There's no real message or point in lingering. We already know that in the real world most of the bad guys get away with it and win. It's a 1 hour 30 minute fantasy that lets us think they don't, that's all.
Directed by Peter Berg. Starring Mark Wahlberg, Winston Duke, Alan Arkin, Ilza Shlesinger, Bokeem Woodbine, Hope Olaide Wilson, Michael Gaston, Mark Maron, Colleen Camp, Ayana Brown, Dustin Tucker, Austin Post. (R)
Crooked police captain Gaston gets killed the same day that ex-cop/ex-con Spenser (Wahlberg) gets out of the joint; Spenser had a grudge against the deceased, but decides to investigate anyway, blowing the lid off a stewpot of dirty cops, drugs, murder conspiracies, the usual. Garden variety convoluted-but-uninteresting action-noir-mystery is a study in tonal disarray, with scenes of somber reflection and brutish violence crashing against Shlesinger's abrasive "Bahston" kook and Arkin's patented irascible wisecracks. Filmmakers try to solve the erratic pacing issues by having a fight break out every twenty minutes or so; fortunately, the music and camera filters will cue the appropriate whooping or cringing response. Duke, as a soft-spoken "gentle giant" of a wannabe-MMA fighter, plays the only compelling character onscreen (when not forced to go through the "buddy comedy" motions). Based on the private eye character created by Robert B. Parker (previously the subject of television series "Spenser: For Hire").
