(2006) Bad City

Made in the same tradition as "Crash", "Babel" and "Crossing Over" to name a few involving multiple characters interwining with one another and quite well made in terms of it's dialogue, despite the movie being low budget! Movie starts with a bad cop, Manning, an African American police officer who has gambling debts with some very bad people, particularily an oldie name Julien, and then more characters come out on the forefront, such as the illegal immigrant maid and Frank whose trying to get land himself a better gig. All the situtations are credible and quite subtle, and with a bunch of non popular actors can at times turn ones movie experience to be more credible to watch! The only downside is that it could've been longer had it had a bigger budget! A warning though like other films similar to this they're no resolutions!

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

The story was interesting enough, but this was so low budget, any violent scenes were tame and bland.

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.
