Movie Info

Lance Reddick, Mike McGlone, Nutsa Kukhianidze and Austin Pendleton co-star in the action-riddled urban thriller Bad City, which made its (extremely limited) U.S. theatrical debut in February 2006. The complex premise involves a murder investigation that unfolds after two seemingly unrelated society women turn up dismembered: a mafioso's (Pendleton) mistress, and the wife of a state attorney candidate played by Reddick (of television's Oz). Local authorities infer that a psychopathic serial killer holds responsibility, until leads point, oddly, to two individuals - a unique figure in each case. Kukhianidze portrays a Polish emigrant who moves into a hotel and falls under the thumb of Pendleton's predatory crime boss, Julian Healy. Newcomer Bruce Terris directs, from a mazelike script he co-authored with Rick Rose.

Audience Reviews for Dirty Work

im pretty sure this was a straight to DVD film and not a bad straight to dvd but far from good...its best watched when nothing else is on tv, you might find its a little better.

it's low budget alright: you can see that in the filming techniques (which make for some amusing fights when they're not supposed to be) & the soundtrack. all that said, the story is interesting enough though it is a bit slow. there's really no big dramatic ending, that i didn't appreciate too much. the guy who played the role of julian was awesome though

Low budget action thriller, the cast is fine, especially Nutsa Kukhianidze, but the film leaves you feeling empty and cold. Stark and gritty, unpleasant. The characters are just too jaded, I had a hard time staying interested.
