Movie Info

A revered Dallas law professor is brutally murdered and District Attorney -- and possible Senate candidate Edward Mills (James Russo) -- has vowed to find the killer. Meanwhile, the homicide squad is busy trying to stop a serial killer targeting the city's prostitutes. Dallas homicide detective Amanda Reeve (Rachel Hunter) has her hands full with both cases, but finds herself in physical and emotional danger when she encounters two lovely lesbians who are suspects in the professor's death. As the foul nature of the professor's true nature is revealed, Amanda becomes confused by the increasingly complicated case, which soon includes her former lover, Assistant D.A. Cobb (Matt Battaglia), as a suspect.

Critic Reviews for Pendulum

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

It's so badly written and indifferently directed that it degrades its subject; a few more movies like this could put lawnorder out of business for good.

July 9, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Playing the characters so hyper-observant, and suggesting through acting that each person is a conflict of pulls in all directions, makes the hollow, TV-styled Pendulum seem almost mobile, and sort of intelligent.

June 18, 2019 | Full Review…

Aside from some bizarre casting, a few gorgeous young women, and a plot amazingly comprised of ever cable flick ever made, Pendulum is an outright chore to sit through.

July 13, 2002 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A film of uncommon badness
