Wilder

Starring: Pam Grier, Rutger Hauer; Director: Rodney Gibbons

Grier’s latest failure to capitalize on her Jackie Brown comeback casts her as Della Wilder, a maverick Chicago cop (is there any other kind in bad movies?) who suspects a charming OB-GYN (Hauer, a long way from Blade Runner) may be a serial strangler. Back in the day, Grier kicked serious butt in blaxploitation kitsch classics like Foxy Brown, but the superbland Wilder packs surprisingly little punch. It’d have been a lot better if it had lived up to its title.
