Bad City

Bad City A/K/A Dirty Work -This feels like a STD(straight to DVD release) - a small film about a corrupt cop(Lance Reddick(The Wire), a Polish immigrant and a crusading D.A.While this movie has some decent scenes and soundwork- it feels like a collage of cliche's.None of the characters are all that likeable- well except Austin Pendleton as the town bad guy- who has a unique villianish charm to him.Nothing to seek out or even rent - unless you are just craving a noir-ish DVD to watch next weekend(in that case I would pounce on the re-release of Double Indemnity).
