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.
