Blue Steel 1990

Blue Steel

Critics Consensus

Blue Steel's increasingly over-the-top story beggars disbelief, but this cop drama is elevated by an appealing cast and Kathryn Bigelow's stylish direction.

Movie Info

When rookie cop Megan Turner (Jamie Lee Curtis) kills a convenience store robber, she does not notice when psychopathic commodities trader Eugene Hunt (Ron Silver) takes the dead man's gun. With no weapon at the crime scene, the police hold Turner accountable for killing an unarmed man. Meanwhile, Hunt uses the stolen weapon to go on a killing spree. Turner teams up with detective Nick Mann (Clancy Brown) to clear her name and catch the killer. An unexpected romance complicates matters.

    I'm almost willing to give it pass because of the impeccable direction, cinematography, and Curtis' performance. Unfortunately the screenplay is so outrageously bad that whatever potential the movie had is rendered pointless.

    Normally a werewolf movie will have more werewolves in it than this.

    I saw Blue Steel 25 years after it was filmed. The story is OK, but I found it plodded along at times. Where is the NCIS lab when you need it?

    When the newly hired police Megan Turner kills an armed robber during his first mission begins a psychotic serial killer a wild hunt for her. A murder at a time he moves ever closer to her. And for each murder he dedicates a bullet to the young Megan. Will she find the killer in time? And will she be able to find out how it could be that he uses the same murder weapon as the robber she killed? It was a pretty good movie but I have to see it again
