Review of Wicked City

60 minutes

“Wicked City” follows a unique case set in a noteworthy era of L.A. history, starting with a murder case from 1982 centered on the rock ‘n’ roll, cocaine-infused revelry of the Sunset Strip. Alliances are formed between detectives, reporters, drug dealers and club-goers to solve a serial murder case.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Cancelled before it had much chance to build it's audience, Wicked City's 7 released episodes are well worth watching if you enjoy this genre. As you would expect with any tale of a serial killing or murder, the story line was violent but honestly not any more graphic than other prime time crime dramas in my opinion. I would have tuned in for a second season if one had been granted. The plot had satisfying twists and turns to keep the analytical mind of the viewer entertained. However it was probably the disturbingly compelling performances of Ed Westwick and Erica Christensen that truly brought the real electricity to this drama. I loved that these two characters were so intelliegent. layered, and complex not just one dimensional monsters.
