Editorial Reviews

This "gripping" (The New York Times) psychological thriller starring Jamie Lee Curtis "hums with an electric current" (Variety) as it vividly depicts a female cop's mental and physical struggles with an obsessed psychopathic killer. Hypnotic and riveting, Blue Steel's "tightly strung" (The Hollywood Reporter) plot will keep you suspended until the very last frame! Rookie cop Megan Turner (Curtis) orders a burglar to drop his gun. He whirls to shoot. Too late. Turner fires, killing him instantly. But she doesn't know that someone has been watching. And when that someone lifts the assailant's gun from the crime scene, carves Turner's name into the bullets and uses them in a series of murders, Turner is drawn into a deadly game of wits with a psychopath who's always one step ahead…and much closer than she thinks!

This was almost more of a horror movie than a thriller, with supernatural elements. I'm only writing a review to clear up some things about the story written by reviewers who gave the movie 1 star, mostly because it seemed that they didn't understand the movie they had just seen. It makes sense that they might not understand it because it isn't a standard "Hollywood" movie: they simply may have never been used to a story told this way, with this pacing, or this level of thought or analysis to it. Nothing was dumbed down or laid it out for you directly. You were supposed to be gathering the story through context and the characters' environments and behaviors. The movie never out-and-out directly tells you, "this is why this is happening." It takes a little bit of thought. (A word of caution, this review contains many spoilers.)

Character development didn't clobber you over the head. A very great part of the movie was about the transformation of the villain (Silver). In the beginning, he is a man who made his money at the stock exchange. His profession and lifestyle and aggressive tactics at work, which were smoothly and quickly laid out before the audience, were intended to describe his character. We learn his obsession with money is actually his obsession with power after he witnesses a criminal getting gunned down by a cop (Curtis). Before he becomes a murderer, Eugene's life is threatened by a thief with a gun in a convenience store. It is in this moment that he realizes the power of the fear of death, firsthand. When the cop, Megan, guns down the thief, he has an epiphany: death can be defeated by whomever kills first. We don't know, but it may have been the first time Eugene ever even thought about dying.

Jamie Lee Curtis is one of Hollywood's more diverse actresses-- from being heralded the "Scream Queen" for such films as HALLOWEEN and THE FOG, to comedic genuis in A FISH CALLED WANDA and TRUE LIES. Her portrayal of a rookie cop who becomes the target of an obsessed stalker (Ron Silver) after her first assignment on the force solidifies her acting abilities and film repertoire. Ron Silver plays the Wall-Street-broker-turned-psychopath flawlessly.
BLUE STEEL is a cop flick with a twist which, unlike many films in the genre, showcases a lead female's descent through the police force. Amir M. Mokri's encompassing and somber cinematography, Brad Fiedel's ambient and chilling musical score, and Kathryn Bigelow's cool, detatched direction, combined with the excellent cast which also includes Louise Fletcher, Clancy Brown, and Elizabeth Peña, makes for a unique, entertaining, and esthetically pleasing film!

This is a great movie. An older movie and often overlooked, I think it is a great example of Jamie Lee Curtis' talent on exhibit early on. As a rookie cop on the NYP force, someone is killing people in her name, but who? It's a taut thriller and will keep your interest untill the end. Movie arrived in great condition as promised and shipping was really fast, and I would DEFINITELY do business with this seller again.

I am a Jamie Lee Curtis fan so naturally I disregarded the bad reviews and gave this movie a try. I wanted to like this movie, I really did. Unfortunately, the one star reviewers here are right. I've seen some bad movies in my day and I'm sad to say that this is one of them. I'm the kind of person who hates not to finish a movie so I always suffer through, no matter how much agony I'm in, but I thought about not finishing this one many times. Jamie's character is so annoying you just want someone to punch her in the face. I actually rooted for her to die at the end; that's how done I was with this movie. The actor who plays the bad guy does a really good psycho, but that's about the only positive thing I can say about the film. Let me be clear though, just because he played his part well does not mean that I wasn't annoyed with him too. I was annoyed with the whole movie and I yelled at the moronic characters throughout the film. I'm really disappointed that I will only get a couple hours of sleep tonight because I decided to watch this movie. It wasn't worth my time. Blue Steel is not worth anyone's time. Even if you get this movie free (like I did watching it on Prime), it's not worth the price. Your time is far too precious; even if you use it to blankly stare at a wall for an hour and 40 minutes. Please heed my warning and pass on this film. I wish I had my time back.

jamie lee curtis made this b movie potboiler , with a higher budget than a usual b movie though, this played at the movie screens and did fairly well back then, and she carries the movie like the pro she is in a engaging manner. At this point she'd been a leading actress for 12 years and this one which was directed by a woman was a interesting choice. I had a friend who loved this movie so much that he named things 'blue steel'! I too enjoyed this one and if you don't overthink it and just take it as a b movie that can be slightly over the top then you will enjoy this one. However if you are not a fan of this type of b movie made on a A budget then you won't enjoy it as much as I did. The late Ron Silver who died fairly young in his early sixties a few years ago, plays the villian as a complete slimey nut and these type of people do exist in real life to be sure, I have met them.
Anyways, the dvd looks decent, but this one did well enough for a blu ray release , at least with another movie. The double feature blu ray is a great idea for catalog movies and this one would fit well that way.
