Blue Steel turns into yet another movie about Jamie Lee Curtis bravely fighting off a bogeyman. It's Halloween 1990. Still, Bigelow's talent cuts through in flashes.

Underrated Kathryn Bigelow gem.
May 5, 2006
The thriller inadvertently becomes an exercise in erotic violence: Director Bigelow turns the heroine's uniform and gun into fetishism, making her film a field day for Freudian psychologists.

February 9, 2006
Short on plausibility but preserving the psycho-sexual ambiguities throughout, Bigelow's seductively stylish, wildy fetishistic thriller is proof that a woman can enter a traditionally male world and, like Megan, beat men at their own game.

A routine crime thriller that surprisingly adds some off-kilter punch to its run-of-the-mill psychological edginess.

Jamie Lee Curtis makes Megan so appealing and real that the film holds together even when it has no reason to.

The film gets very silly at times, particularly during the unnaturally attenuated final showdown between Megan and Eugene, but it's still enjoyable.

Bigelow brings some steely style to an otherwise pedestrian cop thriller. Clever switcheroo on the casting, though.

January 1, 2000
The plot is a little of "Fatal Attraction," a little of "Jagged Edge" and a little of "Wall Street." It works because it's so audacious in combining elements that don't seem to belong together.

Good premise, weak execution. Silver is rather hammy as the gun nut.

What starts out as a moody arthouse flick rapidly becomes an uneven B-movie yukfest (sometimes intentional, sometimes not), with low-budget concessions to the Hollywood cop-versus-killer industry.
