Bodily Harm (1995)

MPAA Rating: R

Details Movie Rated: R; Genre: Mystery and Thriller; With: Daniel Baldwin and Linda Fiorentino

Like Jade, Linda Fiorentino's most recent picture, this lower-profile effort is an exploitative sex-and-murder concoction; here it's set in Las Vegas and involves the brutal death of a stripper. Fiorentino, playing a homicide detective, phones in her smirks and husky sighs; so does Daniel Baldwin, as the ex-cop who's not only a suspect but a former lover of Fiorentino's. Bodily Harm is fairly brisk, but given the backlash one-time critics' darling Fiorentino is getting for Jade, she had better hope there aren't too many more duds like this around waiting for video release.
